Naming a University in a large city after a small town ten miles away was an absolutely idiotic decision. It's rendered even more imbecilic by the fact that the University was setup to be a University in Coventry, which at the time was one of the largest cities in Europe that didn't have a University! What could be used as a powerful marketing tool is rendered almost useless by the name! And having "Warwick Arts Centre" that's not even in Warwick? It's absolutely ridiculous. Beyond ridiculous. Why does this city get blighted by so many poor decisions? It is so typical of Coventry - it's the home of one the UK's top Universities, but it's named after a different town!

You'll be pleased to hear that Coventry University has been voted the top new university.

By the Guardian, apparently. (33rd in the UK) Meanwhile, it's ranked 701st in the world on the QS University site. (Warwick is 64 or somewhere)
