© #COVHOUR  For Questions /  Contact us at jo@COVHOUR.CO.UK

#Covhour was started on 22nd August 2013 and was the first online networking hour for Coventry.  It was set up with the aim to help local businesses to connect, to share information and to support each other.  Now with a community of more than 10,500 followers in less than four years, we can safely say that this has been achieved!   

 

The unique thing about this online networking group is that it was started by a local Coventry woman Joanne Brooks and unlike most other groups she does not run her own business she is employed by a business in the City.  When asked about the reason she started #Covhour Joanne replied "I enjoy connecting people and I am so proud of the city having lived here all my life, that I wanted to do my bit and to give something back.  I have met so many wonderful people through #Covhour and although it is a big commitment running the networking hour every week, I just love it!"  

Joanne continues to host #Covhour every Thursday between 8 pm and 9 pm and so why not join in this Thursday?

Family run student accommodation at the heart of Coventry

August 23, 2018

 

More than 20,000 students make Coventry their home every year, coming from 140 different countries and choosing to study and live in this great city. There’s a wide range of accommodation available to them, with more accommodation blocks being built right now. University City Lodge (UCL) is one of those options available, and offers some unique and personal advantages for students.

Located on Corporation Street, UCL is located only 8 minutes from Coventry University, and a 10 minute bus ride from Warwick University. Being in the heart of Coventry makes it super convenient for shops, restaurants, nightlife and entertainment, as well as the excellent local and national transport links. 

 

 

Well maintained rooms of various sizes and configurations mean students can share if they wish to, which adds to the community feeling of UCL. Great facilities along with insurance and internet included in the cost means students can budget easily for their essentials. UCL offer arrival packs to purchase – handy for those who have travelled from overseas – and security of the building as well as individual rooms is taken very seriously.

 

For those students that have travelled half way around the world, being ‘sent to Coventry’ is not only probably the first time away from home and family support, but is also an introduction to a completely different language and culture. Imagine how daunting and scary that could be? UCL is a family-run business, taking pride in their personal service, friendly staff and safe environment. Students often comment how warm the staff are and how comfortable the accommodation is, and students return year after year during their studies which demonstrates how satisfied they are. Parents are reassured that their kids are gaining independence and freedom in a safe and friendly environment – warmly welcomed into the heart of Coventry and into a new family environment.
