Undergraduate student Muhammad Bilal shares his favourite things about Warwick University Campus.

As an international student, finding a university that felt like a home away from home was important luckily the University of Warwick has made that possible. Here are five things I love about the Warwick campus.

The Coffee Shop Scene

Let me start with my love for the incredible coffee shops around campus! As someone who loves to study in a cosy cafe with a hot cup of coffee by my side, the variety of great spots like Nero, Pret and Curiositea is perfect! I can get classwork done efficiently while still treating myself and getting an extra shot of energy. Whether I'm tackling a challenging assignment or simply indulging in some leisure reading, these campus coffee shops have become my go-to destinations for fueling both my mind and my coffee cravings.Coffee

Convenient Grocery Shopping 

One aspect of campus life I truly appreciate is the convenience of having grocery stores readily available on the campus grounds. It can be challenging for students to find the time to venture out for grocery shopping amidst the whirlwind of classes, extracurricular activities, and social commitments. However, with options like the Campus Grocery Store and the Rootes Grocery Store, I can easily stock up on all my essential items without leaving the comfort of the university. 

Unwinding at the Student Union  

After a long day of classes and academic obligations, there's nothing quite like relaxing at the bustling Student Union. This central hub offers a perfect blend of activities and social spaces, making it a great place to catch up with friends, unwind, or grab a quick bite. I truly appreciate that the Student Union provides a wide range of entertainment options. The existence of event spaces, food stations, and even a pool table area ensures that there's something fun for every student to enjoy after classes. The Student Union also caters to essential needs with its on-site barbour facility and haircut services. This added convenience means I can keep up with personal grooming without venturing far from campus, saving me valuable time and effort.

The Fantastic Gym Facilities

One of my favourite aspects of the Warwick campus is the outstanding gym and outdoor sports facilities at the Sports and Wellness Hub. You have access to exercise equipment, a wide range of fitness classes, a swimming pool, a sauna, climbing and more right on campus, so no excuses about taking too much time to travel to a gym. With the advanced amenities just steps away, I can easily fit workouts into my routine whenever I need an energising study break. It's a fantastic advantage that helps me stay active and balanced.

The Beautiful Green Spaces Woodland

The gorgeous gardens and green spaces make the Warwick campus feel like a natural oasis. One of the aspects I cherish most about these green spaces is their ability to provide a sense of calmness and escape from the hustle and bustle of campus life. Taking study breaks to enjoy a stroll through the wooded areas or a picnic on the open lawns is the perfect way to relax and recharge. Moreover, these green spaces serve as ideal outdoor classrooms and study havens. Beyond their aesthetic appeal and practical benefits, the green spaces at Warwick also promote a sense of environmental consciousness.

To conclude, I am thankful for the Warwick campus because it makes everything more convenient and takes all the needs of students into consideration by making their university life easier than ever.
