If you are currently a student at the University of Warwick, or if you’ve been one, you know the pro and cons of going to a campus uni – a bubble between Coventry and Leamington Spa. But we love it like this, and there are a hundred of things that make studying at Warwick a unique experience. The campus might feel isolated at times, but there are a lot of things to do on campus and nearby. Whether you live on campus, in Cov or in Leam, you’ll find this accurate: here are 10 GIFs that actually describe being a student at the University of Warwick!
1. When you live in Jack Martin but you’re constantly late for your lectures.
Let’s be honest about it: being late for a 9 am, despite living on campus on first year, has happened to all of us.
2. When it’s Thursday and you remember there’s the crepes stall in the Library Cafè.
I don’t know about you, but I instantly feel happy when it’s lunch time and I just came out of a lecture in the Social Sciences building, I’m super hungry and I remember it’s Thursday and I can buy those amazing crepes in the Library Cafè. My favourite is Nutella and banana. This is another one of the funny GIFs of being a student at the University of Warwick!
3. Getting the bus from campus at 5pm.
We all know how annoying it is to get on a bus to Leamington at peak time! In order to avoid the stress of getting on a packed bus, you might think of staying on campus after your lectures and seminars are over. You can go to swim in the pool at the sports centre and then have a sauna or you can study in the library and take the bus at 7.
4. When your friend has a car so you don’t have to take the bus to campus.
Taking the bus to go to campus every day can be quite exhausting! But there are some of us more lucky than others: they have a friend with a car. Tag your friend with a car and let them know you love them. This is one of the hilarious GIFs of being a student at the University of Warwick!
5. Finding a space in the library during third term.
The library is so busy during summer term that finding a free space is an event worth celebrating! Personally, I prefer floor 3, which is very popular during term 3, so sometimes I go to the PG hub instead. I find that during summer term cafès and pubs are also good places to study, when the library is too busy. Varsity is basically empty in the morning and I love the atmosphere – I’ve written so many of my essays sat at a table there!
6. Meeting your crush in Rootes Grocery Store.
You’re buying your meal deal from Rootes and they are in the queue to pay. You never know if having stalked them on Facebook allows you to say hi to them or not.
7. Going to Neon and leaving your coat at home, so you don’t have to pay for wardrobe.
Paying for wardrobe is an absolute rip-off, so some of us prefer to be freezing. This is one of the most relatable GIFs of being a student at the University of Warwick!
8. When your friend is a postgraduate.
Warwick has a very big postgraduate community (I am a postgraduate myself) and postgraduates are keen to hang out with undergraduates sometimes, in societies or playing sports, and that’s how beautiful friendships start!
9. Every Wednesday before POP!
We all love POP!: commercial music, all of our friends and that sticky floor that makes us feel at home!
10. Submitting your assignment on Tabula 1 minute before the deadline.
