Conveniently located in the centre of the city, Penny Black House puts the best of Coventry at your fingertips. On weekends, discover works by the likes of LS Lowry and David Hockney at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, before admiring the evocative ruins of the 14th Century St Michael’s Cathedral. Broaden your culinary horizons with a visit to the World Food Court, before shopping for bric-a-brac and fresh groceries at the bustling Coventry Market. In the evening, get tickets to a musical at the Belgrade Theatre, or meet your friends for craft beers at chic watering hole Inspire Café Bar.

Your commute to class couldn’t be simpler from your fully furnished room at Penny Black House. Walk five minutes to Coventry University, or hop on the bus for the 25-minute ride to the University of Warwick. With your closest bus stop just a two-minute walk away and a safe cycle storage on-site, exploring the rest of the city on weekends is equally easy. Head to Swanswell Park for a picnic by the lake, or to Fargo Creative Village to shop for locally made arts, fashions and crafts.

Whether you choose a private room or one shared with a friend, your space at Penny Black House will soon feel like home. Swipe yourself in through the secure entry, then make the most of your inclusive utilities by turning up the in-room heating. Raid the fridge in your mini-kitchen for a tasty snack, then head down the corridor to swap stories with your friends in the shared lounge. Later, use the unlimited broadband internet to research a class paper at your bedroom desk or to upload new photos to Facebook.

When you’re done, de-stress with a hot shower, then choose a new outfit from your spacious wardrobe. Get your friends together for a trip to the laundry room, where you can pass the time by discussing what to whip up for dinner in the communal kitchen. Sit down to eat around the dining table or, if you don’t feel like cooking, opt for a meal at one of Far Gosford Street’s international restaurants instead. When you get home, 24-hour CCTV affords the peace of mind you need for a good night’s sleep.
