History[edit]

Twentieth century[edit] The idea for a university in Warwickshire
Warwickshire
was first mooted shortly after the Second World War, although it was not founded for a further two decades. A partnership of the city and county councils ultimately provided the impetus for the university to be established on a 400-acre (1.6 km2) site jointly granted by the two authorities.[13] There was some discussion between local sponsors from both the city and county over whether it should be named after Coventry
Coventry
or Warwickshire.[13] The name "University of Warwick" was adopted, even though the County Town of Warwick
Warwick
itself lies some 8 miles (13 km) to its southwest and Coventry's city centre is only 3.5 miles (5.6 km) northeast of the campus.[14][15][16][17] The establishment of the University of Warwick
Warwick
was given approval by the government in 1961 and received its Royal Charter
Royal Charter
of Incorporation in 1965. Since then, the university has incorporated the former Coventry College of Education in 1979 and has extended its land holdings by the continuing purchase of adjoining farm land. The university also benefited from a substantial donation from the family of Jack Martin, which enabled the construction of the Warwick
Warwick
Arts Centre. The university initially admitted a small intake of graduate students in 1964 and took its first 450 undergraduates in October 1965. Since its establishment Warwick
Warwick
has expanded its grounds to 721 acres (2.9 km2) with many modern buildings and academic facilities, lakes, and woodlands. In the 1960s and 1970s, Warwick
Warwick
had a reputation as a politically radical institution.[18] More recently, the university was seen as a favoured institution of the Labour government which was in power from 1997 to 2010.[19][20] It was academic partner for a number of flagship Government schemes including the National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth and the NHS University (now defunct). Tony Blair
Tony Blair
described Warwick
Warwick
as "a beacon among British universities for its dynamism, quality and entrepreneurial zeal".[19] Under Vice-Chancellor, Lord Butterworth, Warwick
Warwick
was one of the first UK universities to adopt a business approach to higher education, develop close links with the business community and exploit the commercial value of its research. In a 2012 study by Virgin Media Business, Warwick
Warwick
was described as the most "digitally-savvy" UK university.[6] These tendencies were critiqued by British historian and then- Warwick
Warwick
lecturer, E. P. Thompson, in his 1970 edited book Warwick
Warwick
University Ltd.. This book was published shortly after two large occupations of the administrative buildings on campus in February 1970, when political files on students and staff were uncovered. One student was rejected at the personal request of Lord Butterworth after the student's head teacher tipped the University off about the student's political activities.[21] The Leicester Warwick
Warwick
Medical School, a new medical school based jointly at Warwick
Warwick
and Leicester University, opened in September 2000.[22] On the recommendation of Tony Blair, Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton
chose Warwick
Warwick
as the venue for his last major foreign policy address as US President in December 2000. Sandy Berger, Clinton’s National Security Advisor, explaining the decision in his Press Briefing on 7 December 2000, said that: " Warwick
Warwick
is one of Britain's newest and finest research universities, singled out by Prime Minister
Prime Minister
Blair as a model both of academic excellence and independence from the government."[23] Twenty-first century[edit]

donated a new S/390 computer and software worth £2 million to Warwick, to form part of a "Grid" enabling users to remotely share computing power.[25] In April 2004 Warwick
Warwick
merged with the Wellesbourne

and Kirton sites of Horticulture Research International.[26] In July 2004 Warwick
Warwick
was the location for an important agreement between the Labour Party and the Trade Unions on Labour policy and trade union law, which has subsequently become known as the " Warwick
Warwick
Agreement".[27] In June 2006 the new University Hospital Coventry
Coventry
opened, including a 102,000 sq ft (9,500 m2) university clinical sciences building.[28] Warwick Medical School
Warwick Medical School
was granted independent degree-awarding status in 2007, and the School's partnership with the University of Leicester
University of Leicester
was dissolved in the same year.[29][30] In February 2010, Lord Bhattacharyya, director and founder of the WMG unit at Warwick, made a £1 million donation to the university to support science grants and awards.[31][32] In February 2012 Warwick
Warwick
and Melbourne-based Monash University announced the formation of a strategic partnership, including the creation of 10 joint senior academic posts, new dual master's and joint doctoral degrees, and co-ordination of research programmes.[33] In March 2012 Warwick
Warwick
and Queen Mary, University of London
Queen Mary, University of London
announced the creation of a strategic partnership, including research collaboration, joint teaching of English, history and computer science undergraduates, and the creation of eight joint post-doctoral research fellowships.[34][35] In April 2012 it was announced that Warwick
Warwick
would be the only European university participating in the Center for Urban Science and Progress, an applied science research institute to be based in New York consisting of an international consortium of universities and technology companies led by New York University
New York University
and NYU-Poly.[36] In August 2012, Warwick
Warwick
and five other Midlands-based research-intensive universities— Aston University, the University of Birmingham, the University of Leicester, Loughborough University
Loughborough University
and the University of Nottingham—formed the M5 Group, a regional bloc intended to maximise the member institutions' research income and enable closer collaboration.[37] In September 2013 it was announced that a new National Automotive Innovation Centre would be built by WMG at Warwick's main campus at a cost of £100 million, with £50 million to be contributed by Jaguar Land Rover and £30 million by Tata Motors.[38][39] The centre will open in Summer 2018.[40] In July 2014, the government announced that Warwick
Warwick
would be the host for the £1 billion Advanced Propulsion Centre, a joint venture between the Automotive Council and industry. The ten-year programme intends to position the university and the UK as leaders in the field of research into the next generation of automotive technology.[citation needed] On 3 December 2014, Warwick
Warwick
was embroiled in controversy after West Midlands police were called to a free education sit-in, violently breaking it up with CS gas and Tasers (the latter of which were deployed but not used).[41] Viral videos of the violence led to petitions and protests against the police and University actions. A 1,000-strong demonstration the next day led to an 8-day occupation of the Rootes building, which ended after the University took out a high court injunction against all occupations on campus. Campus[edit] Warwick
Warwick
is located on the outskirts of Coventry, 3.4 mi (5.5 km) southwest of the city centre (and not in the town of Warwick
Warwick
as its name suggests). The university's main site comprises three contiguous campuses, all within walking distance of each other. The university also owns a site in Wellesbourne, acquired in 2004 when it merged with Horticulture Research International. Main campus[edit]

The main Warwick
Warwick
campus occupies a 710 acres (2.88 km2) site straddling the boundary between the City of Coventry
Coventry
and the County of Warwickshire. The original buildings of the campus are in contemporary 1960s architecture, a style chosen in deliberate contrast to the medieval, classical, or "red brick" character of older British universities. The campus contains all of the main student amenities, all but four of the student halls of residence, and the Students' Union. Other amenities include a grocery store, pharmacy, two bank branches ( Barclays
Barclays
and Santander), a hair salon, a post office, a copy shop, and an STA Travel agency. A Tesco

Warwick
Arts Centre[edit] Main article: Warwick
Warwick
Arts Centre The Warwick Arts Centre
Warwick Arts Centre
is a multi-venue arts complex situated at the centre of Warwick's main campus. It attracts around 300,000 visitors a year to over 3,000 individual events spanning contemporary and classical music, drama, dance, comedy, films and visual art. The centre comprises six principal spaces: the Butterworth Hall, a 1,500-seat concert hall; a 550-seat theatre; a 180-seat theatre studio; a 220-seat cinema; the Mead Gallery, an art gallery; and the Music Centre, with practice rooms, and an ensemble rehearsal room where music societies and groups can rehearse. In addition the site includes the university bookshop, hospitality suites, a restaurant, cafe, shops, and two bars. University House[edit] In 2003 Warwick
Warwick
acquired the former headquarters of National Grid plc, which it converted into an administration building renamed University House. There is a student-run facility called the "Learning Grid" in the building, which includes two floors of PC clusters, scanners, photocopiers, a reference library, interactive whiteboards and plasma screens for use by individuals and for group work.[42] White Koan[edit]

The Koan in front of the Helen Martin Arts Studio

The White Koan is a modern art sculpture by Liliane Lijn which is installed outside the main entrance to the Warwick
Warwick
Arts Centre.[43][44] The Koan is 6 metres (20 ft) high,[43] white in colour, decorated with elliptical of fluorescent lights and is rotated by an electric motor whilst illuminated. It is intended to represent the Buddhist quest for questions without answers, the Kōan. The Koan was made in 1971 as part of the Peter Stuyvesant Foundation City Sculpture Project and was originally sited in Plymouth; it moved to the Hayward Gallery
Hayward Gallery
in London

before being purchased by Warwick
Warwick
in 1972.[43] Sports facilities[edit] The main campus hosts a large sports centre. In 2013, the university invested £1.5 million in developing the centre, installing a state-of-the-art gym, alongside other facilities including a 25-metre six-lane swimming pool, squash courts, an indoor rock climbing facility, and two sports halls. Elsewhere on campus are a number of other sports halls, a £2.5 million 4-court indoor tennis centre with floodlit outdoor courts, a 400 m athletics track, multi-purpose outdoor surfaces, and over 60 acres of outdoor playing fields, including a football pitch and cricket grounds. Sports facilities are being constantly expanded, following the commencement of Warwick Sport, a 2005 joint venture between the university and the Students' Union. Most of the university's sports facilities are open to the general public. Warwick
Warwick
was an official training venue for the London

Planned developments[edit] In November 2005, Warwick
Warwick
announced its vision for the year 2020 and outlined proposals for how it would like to develop its campus over the next 15 years.[citation needed] The proposals built upon recent construction activity including a new Mathematics and Statistics Building, a new Computer Science Building, new Business School buildings, the Digital Laboratory, the new Heronbank Residences and an expanded Sports Centre. The proposals envisage a shift in the "centre of gravity" of the campus away from the Students' Union towards University House and a proposed "Academic Square" located around the new maths and computer science buildings. Forthcoming projects include an inter-disciplinary biosciences research facility; a £25 million upgrade to Warwick
Warwick
Business School; and the National Automotive Innovation Campus, a new £92 million venture funded by Jaguar Land Rover
Jaguar Land Rover
and the UK government. The NAIC's purpose is to research and develop novel technologies to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and to reduce CO2 emissions. The new 30,000 sq ft (2,800 m2) campus will provide research opportunities for postgraduates from 2016 onwards. The campus has been dubbed a ‘brain trust’ and will be used to pioneer the green and high-tech sports and luxury cars of tomorrow, doubling the size of Jaguar’s research team.[47] Organisation and administration[edit]

Warwick
Warwick
is a member of Nereus, the network of the libraries of the leading institutions in economics research - including Columbia, Oxford, the LSE, Paris-Dauphine and Sciences Po Paris. The main university library is located in the middle of the main campus. It houses approximately 1,265,000 books[61] and over 13 km of archives and manuscripts. The main library has recently been remodelled and now houses new services to support Research and Teaching practice and collaboration between departments. The Wolfson Research Exchange opened in October 2008 and provides collaboration spaces (both physical and virtual), seminar rooms, conference facilities and study areas for Postgraduate Research students. The Teaching Grid, which opened in 2008, is a flexible space which allows teaching staff to try out new technologies and techniques. Adjacent to the main library building is the Modern Records Centre, a sizeable archive collection, including the UK's largest industrial relations collection. The Central Library Service also runs the Learning Grids, reference libraries which are accompanied by technology rich study space, providing access to video conferencing facilities, smart boards and networked PCs. These are currently based in University House, the Rootes Building and Leamington Spa
Leamington Spa
Town Hall. The two learning grids located on Main Campus provide study space for approximately 600 students. In addition, the Central Library Service also operates the BioMed Grid, a reference library and study space specifically for Life Science students. An additional study space, The Postgraduate Hub, is also maintained for use by Postgraduates in Senate House. In addition to the facilities provided through the main library, several departments have subject specific collections and study spaces. Notably, these include Maths and Statistics, Law, Modern languages, Life Sciences, Philosophy, Engineering, and Sociology. Awards[edit] In 2008 the university launched a new prize, the Warwick
Warwick
Prize for Writing, worth £50,000. It is defined as "an international cross-disciplinary award which will be given biennially for an excellent and substantial piece of writing in the English language, in any genre or form, on a theme that will change with every award". The inaugural winner of the award was Naomi Klein

was ranked 7th overall in The Sunday Times 10-year average (1998–2007) ranking of British universities based on consistent league table performance,[74] and is a member of the 'Sutton 13' of top ranked Universities in the UK.[75] Warwick
Warwick
is one of only four universities (along with Cambridge, Oxford and St Andrews) to have never left the top 10 in one of the three main domestic rankings between 2008-2017.[76] In 2017, Warwick
Warwick
was named as the university with the joint second highest graduate employment rate of any UK university (along with St Andrews), with 97.7 per cent of its graduates in work or further study three and a half years after graduation.[77] According to the survey by Times Higher Education, Warwick
Warwick
is ranked 6th amongst UK universities for value-added university education in relation to fees (costs).[78] According to a 2012-13 High Fliers Research survey, Warwick
Warwick
is the "university targeted by the most top employers" such as Apple Inc., Airbus, BBC, Barclays, the European Commission, Google, McKinsey & Company, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Rolls-Royce and many others.[79] However, in another survey, Warwick

International Digital Laboratory

In 2013/14 Warwick
Warwick
had a total research income of £90.1 million, of which £33.9 million was from Research Councils; £25.9 million was from central government, local authorities and public corporations; £12.7 million was from the European Union; £7.9 million was from UK industry and commerce; £5.2 million was from UK charitable bodies; £4.0 million was from overseas sources; and £0.5 million was from other sources.[1] In the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework (REF), Warwick
Warwick
was again ranked 7th overall (as 2008) amongst multi-faculty institutions and was the top-ranked university in the Midlands.[84] Some 87% of the University's academic staff were rated as being in "world-leading" or "internationally excellent" departments with top research ratings of 4* or 3*.[84] In the RAE 2008, 19 of Warwick's departments were ranked in the top 10 by output in the UK in the assessment,[84] including English, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Computing, Philosophy, Economics, Chemistry, Politics, Statistics, Film and TV Studies, Theatre Studies, History, Classics and Law. Warwick
Warwick
is particularly strong in the areas of decision sciences research (economics, finance, management, mathematics and statistics). For instance, researchers of the Warwick Business School
Warwick Business School
have won the highest prize of the prestigious European Case Clearing House (ECCH: the equivalent of the Oscars in terms of management research).[85] Warwick
Warwick
has established a number of stand-alone units to manage and extract commercial value from its research activities. The four most prominent examples of these units are University of Warwick
Warwick
Science Park; Warwick
Warwick
HRI; Warwick
Warwick
Ventures (the technology transfer arm of the University); and WMG. As a result of these activities, Warwick
Warwick
is the only university in the UK which generates more of its income through commercial activities than it receives in Government grants, which has allowed it to invest generously in facilities and undergo rapid growth. Research is the greatest source of income for the university, followed by overseas students and Warwick
Warwick
Accommodation.[86] Commercial focus[edit] Warwick
Warwick
has at times received criticism for being too commercially focused, at the expense of academic creativity and diversity. The most famous proponent of this critique was the noted historian E.P. Thompson, who edited and wrote much of Warwick
Warwick
University Ltd in 1971.[87] The book focuses on the brief student occupation of the Registry in 1967, and its causes, the files that were discovered and published, and the subsequent actions of the university, students and staff. Nevertheless, with the appointment of Sir Nicholas Scheele as Chancellor in 2002, the university signalled that it intended to continue and expand its commercial activities. In an interview for the BBC, Scheele said: "I think in the future, education and industry need to become even more closely linked than they have been historically. As government funding changes, the replacement could well come through private funding from companies, individuals and grant-giving agencies."[88] Student life[edit] Undergraduate student life at Warwick
Warwick
can be broadly divided into two phases. In the first year, student life revolves around campus and, in particular, the Students' Union (with its sports clubs, societies, and entertainment facilities). In subsequent years students typically live off-campus, in Leamington Spa, or in either the Coventry
Coventry
suburbs of Earlsdon

and Canley

or the town of Kenilworth. Students' Union[edit] Main article: University of Warwick

Students' Union is one of the largest students' unions in the UK, and currently has over 260 societies and 67 sports clubs including basketball, rowing and ice hockey. There are new societies every year, including Jailbreak and more recently the HOMMOUS Society.[89] The Union has an annual turnover of approximately £6 million, the profit from which is used to provide services to students and to employ its staff and sabbatical officers. The Union is divided into two buildings—SUHQ (mainly societies and administration and Restaurant Xananas) and The Union Building (entertainment facilities). The Union Building contains a 3-room club venue known as "The Copper Rooms", CAMRA-accredited "The Dirty Duck" pub, a popular bar called "The Terrace Bar", Curiositea- a tea shop famous for its hot chocolates, cakes and vintage atmosphere, The Graduate, a postgraduate social and study space and The Bread Oven, a design-your-own sandwich shop. The original Union South building underwent an £11 million refurbishment in Spring 2008, which was completed in January 2010, and alongside its various outlets provides a pool room and various society spaces. The Students Union is also home to Refresh Catering, a bespoke catering provision for Warwick Campus and its surrounding areas. The Students Union provides popular events in most of its outlets including POP!, Skool Dayz, pub quizzes and karaoke nights (the latter two held in The Dirty Duck) and film nights in Curiositea. The ents team also provide the Christmas party- which often incorporates reindeer and an ice rink, and the Summer Party. The Summer Party is an outdoor mini-festival that showcases both up-and-coming and popular acts alongside funfare rides, games and bars. The Union has a tradition of hosting up-and-coming bands; recently it has seen bands such as Ash, Sugababes, Amerie, The Kooks, Reel Big Fish, The Departure, The Subways, Idlewild, The Rory McKenna Variety Show, Hell is for Heroes, The Automatic, The Dave Wright Experience, Boy Kill Boy, Amy Winehouse, The Killers, The Streets, Feeder, and Scouting for Girls. The Union is a member of the National Union of Students (NUS) and National Postgraduate Committee (NPC). Student events[edit] Warwick
