Women Students

Women students talking with each other.

This community is for any student that self-defines as a woman and those who’s gender identities include ‘woman’ some or all of the time. We aim to offer students the opportunity to meet likeminded people, make friends for life and enjoy events all whilst making a positive change across campus.

What would you like to achieve in your role this year?

I aim to organize extra-curricular activities such as field trips, dinners, etc., that will enhance students’ experience, welfare and network. I hope to build a strong and positive network of international and local students as a community lead.

Every year we celebrate International Women’s Day, celebrating stories and achievements of fierce women throughout our history with the aim to go beyond the traditional themes and instead celebrating diversity and drawing inspiration from the women of the past to create real change in our present and future. If you would like to get involved in the planning or have an idea for International Women’s Day (8th March, 2024), please contact the Women Students Community Engagement Lead or email community.su@coventry.ac.uk.

If you have an idea of an activity you’d like to run for the community, we can support you!

If you have an idea for a campaign you’d like to run, we can help you deliver your campaign!
