A virtual campus tour of Warwick- Part 1
- When choosing Warwick it was the campus that stood out to me. Sadly, this year you can’t come to campus to see it so I thought I could give you a virtual tour. This is just part 1 as the campus is so big so make sure to check back to see more. Additionally, you can do a 3D tour here: https://warwick.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/virtualtour
- The Piazza:
- This is the heart of the campus particular-ly during Term 3–the big screen shows films, Eurovision and sports which makes it a very sociable area. Every other Wednesday there is a food market here allowing you to try food from all over the world at student prices.
The Students Union (SU) is home totheTerraceBarwhich is great for cocktails. The Dirty Duck(which is also based in the SU) is a pub on campus where there are weekly quizzes and karaoke. The Copper Rooms is the club on campus with the famous club night POP. The SU also supports the societies, mainly through funding and advice. Fun Fact: there are over 250societies at the University of Warwick.
Warwick Arts Centre:
This is one of the largest multi-artform venues in the UK hence why they have such a packed programme throughout the year. Inside is a cinema, theatre, studio theatre, Mead Art Gallery, the Butterworth Hall where you will graduate and places for you to practice music. There are lots of opportunities for students to get involved in performances or you can work for the box office. It is currently under renovation to provide students with even more learning and socialising facilities. Below is the artist impression of what the Arts centre will look like.
The Bus Interchange:
In your second year, you will need to move off-campus. Students move to Kenilworth, Coventry, Canley and Leamington Spa. Bus-es take you to Leamington (about 30 minutes ), Kenilworth (15 minutes) and Coventry (20 minutes). Those who wish to live within walking distance of campus live in Canley, particularly 3rd years. You can buy either a year bus pass or buy tickets each time you use the bus depending on your timetable. You can rent a bike from around campus. Additionally, there is easy access to Birmingham Airport with fast trains from Coventry/Leamington to London which is also relatively low in cost if you book far enough in advance. You will also see there is a taxi rank which means if you are in a rush you can quickly grab a taxi. Living off-campus allows you to experience full independent living after you get familiar with everything in your first year.
Warwick Business School:
WBS is one of the most prestigious and highly selective business schools in the world. They have lovely new facilities suitable for different types of learning and have their own restaurant. They also have great links with numerous companies across the country. Their careers department is helpful in getting students on internships and placements with high profile firms!
