Warwick’s Nightlife

One of the most popular questions that I’ve gotten from prospective students and their parents at Open Days is what the nightlife is like at Warwick. A lot of people worry that because the university is somewhat geographically isolated, there’s nothing for students to do once the sun sets; this couldn’t be further from the truth! I actually think that Warwick’s location (not inside a city; on the outskirts of Coventry) is a big advantage for its students because it means that we have more options to choose from. Warwick students typically go clubbing in not one but three places, and I honestly don’t think a lot of people would make the effort to go to so many different places on a regular basis if we were already inside a city.

The three clubbing destinations for Warwick students are Leamington Spa, Coventry and Birmingham. This means that we have more than forty nightclubs for us to choose from for nights-out, and it also means that a really wide variety of music tastes are catered to. Getting to any of the three locations from campus is pretty straightforward: Coventry is a 20-minute bus ride away; Leamington Spa is a 30-minute bus ride; and Birmingham is 20-minute train journey from Canley Railway Station which is a 10-minute uber ride from campus. I have a favourite club in each of the three places: Club M in Coventry (because they have a regular afrobeats night!), Neon in Leamington Spa, and Przym in Birmingham.

Some prospective students also worry that they won’t be able to go on nights-out/enjoy them because they don’t drink (for religious, medical, or personal reasons). Before coming to Warwick, I definitely had some worries that going clubbing meant being pressured into drinking a lot or staying sober and not having a good time (partly because I’d be the only sober person in the room). Thankfully, none of these worries came true! In my group of five friends that I regularly go clubbing with, three of us are non-drinkers, and the two that do drink only do so occasionally and prefer to be sober during nights-out. We have a lot of fun and one of the best things about my university experience has been all the dancing I got to do with these girls!
