Living at Warwick

Finding the right accommodation is key to helping you settle in quickly. We currently have 11 self-catering undergraduate halls of residence on campus. Our own student property management and lettings agency manages more than 8,000 rooms both on and off campus, and provides advice to all full-time undergraduates.

You won't be short of ways to spend your time on campus - whether it's visiting the award-winning Warwick Arts Centre, using our many sports facilities, socialising in our bars and cafés, or enjoying an open-air event. But there are peaceful spots too, with lakes, woodland and green spaces just a few minutes’ walk from central campus.
