Home to the medieval Coventry Cathedral, this historic city is the administrative centre and metropolitan borough in the West Midlands, England. It is the second-largest city in the West Midlands region, after Birmingham and the 12th largest in the United Kingdom. It is home to two universities namely Coventry University and the University of Warwick. The University of Warwick is one of only five universities that has never been rated outside the top ten in terms of teaching excellence and research. This university attracts a great number of students every year, making it rather difficult to secure quality student accommodation in Coventry.
The rising number of students visiting Coventry makes it challenging for these two universities to accommodate them all in the student hall, thereby creating a large demand for private student housing. These off-campus student home offers campus-like facilities and are located within walking distance from the city’s top universities.
