Warwick’s diverse focus arts extends to its other buildings, including the huge Warwick Arts Centre venue - the largest of it’s kind in the UK outside of London – as well as the Horticultural Research Centre in Wellesbourne, and the Warwick Business School campus houses within The Shard in London.

Moving away from the city centre, students at Warwick University will ideally want to live on the west side of the city for short travel times to campus.

All of these are popular student areas where you’ll find 3-bedroom, 4-bedroom or even larger houses.
