Why Stoke is Great for Students
Stoke encompasses most of Coventry’s eastern quarter, including areas like Barras Heath. In the Middle-Ages the area rose to be a famous producer of pottery, tiles and pipe thanks to rich local clay deposits. Nowadays, Stoke is home to a diverse array of families, professionals and students with lots of green, outdoor spaces and efficient transport routes into Coventry city centre.
Stretching out from the edge of the ring road to the very outskirts of Coventry, the main Walsgrave Road and Sky Blue Way roads run as a backbone through Stoke and house the main social and commercial hubs of the area.
Dotted with shops, restaurants, bars and high street brands, these roads also provide quick travel into the city centre which is ideal for Coventry University students. Students at the University of Warwick will need to drive, or take multiple bus routes to reach the campus, located on the opposite side of the city from Stoke.
Students are spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation options in Stoke. A huge variety of properties are available, ranging from small 1-bed or 2-bed apartments, through to 3-bed or 4-bed houses, all the way up to 6-bedroom plus properties for groups of housemates who just can’t bear to be apart.
All of your student essentials are available in the area too, including express supermarkets, budget options like Lidl and larger supermarkets suitable for stocking up the cupboards when parents come to visit.
