Warwick looks after the housing needs of all Warwick students, and helps them to find good places to live, on or off campus, at affordable rents.
In the 2011/2012 academic year there will be a new campus hall of residence called Bluebell consisting of 505 en-suite study bedrooms in four blocks of 8-person flats, first year undergraduates, high speed network/internet access, kitchen and lounge facilities in each flat, all approximately 5 minutes walk from the Students' Union. The new residences have been designed environmentally to respect existing natural features, allow for natural lighting and have excellent levels of insulation.
2010 saw the opening of the new Union building after a £11 million redevelopment. There is now a self-contained, multi-room nightclub with its own chill-out bar – one of the best venues in the region, bringing A-List live acts to Warwick. You can also sample a range of great club nights while the fortnightly ‘Comedy Network’ offers some of the best stand-up in the UK. The Union also has a variety of eating spaces including our bistro, sandwich bar, teashop and traditional pub.
The Students' Union supports over 250 societies and 70 sports clubs, covering the most diverse interests – political, campaigning, welfare, music, drama, volunteering and much more. Being involved in a society means meeting like-minded people, and also receiving training in skills and knowledge that will be invaluable throughout your University career and beyond.
One World Week
One World Week is the World's largest student run international event and is hosted annually at the University. It's an entirely student-run, non-profit initiative. It aims to stimulate personal development and inspire a view based on acceptance and appreciation of the World's Mosaic of Cultures, encouraging awareness of and positive action on issues which affect our One World.
Campus comes alive with international flair during One World Week through a series of debates and discussions, parades and performances, a whole host of sporting tournaments and events as well as cultural exhibitions and workshops.
