Here’s how we’ll keep you safe.

Did you start studying with us in September 2020?

Whether you’re based at our City or Henley campus, college life is an important part of coming to Coventry College and with plenty to see, do and be part of at both campuses, you’re sure to be occupied when not in class or on placement.

City Campus

The City Campus was completed in 2008 and is easily accessible from the town centre and by local bus routes. Two buildings form the City Campus – North and South – which have multiple floors and house various different courses.

There’s a canteen in the South building and a Costa Coffee in the atrium of the North building, along with places to study, meet and create for students on all courses.

Once inside the City Campus buildings you’ll see fantastic facilities, from the outdoor construction areas to the media and recording centres. Dance studios live alongside IT suites, relaxing common rooms and the Studio 50 hair salon open to the public where students gain real life experience.

Henley Campus

The Henley Campus redevelopment was completed in March 2014 and sits to the north of the city in Bell Green. With several floors of classrooms and multiple life-like set ups for training, the Henley Campus is fully set up for your college journey.

The canteen at the Henley Campus provides a daily mix of hot and cold fresh meals with a large space to eat with friends. There’s also a social hub where you can spend time outside of your studying to relax. If there’s a queue in the canteen, there’s also a pop up café in the atrium.

The £8m facilities at Henley include an atrium with exhibition space to display student work, a new block with fourteen large classrooms and state-of-the-art conference facilities, a lively restaurant which is open to the public, a sports and fitness centre and a nursery.
