School History

20th Century

The proposal to establish a new university in Warwickshire was made shortly after the end of World War II.

In 1960, the University Preparatory Committee was formally established under the leadership of Lord Rootes.

The members of the committee (mostly from the Coventry City Council and the Warwickshire Council) reached an agreement on the site selection issue. mark next to Gibett Hill 400 acres (approximately 1.6 square kilometers) of land is used to build a new university. In 1961, the British government officially approved the establishment of Warwick University.

The publication of the Robbins Report in 1963 contributed to the substantial expansion of the scale of British higher education.

The seven universities built at that time (University of East Anglia, University of Essex, University of Kent, University of Lancaster, University of Sussex, University of Warwick and University of York) are usually called “flat glass universities”.

The appellation comes from their modern architectural design style-widely used floor glass materials in steel or concrete structures. The “Plate Glass University” contrasts sharply with the “Red Brick University” which is dominated by Victorian architecture and the older “Classical University”.

In addition, these universities are often called “Shakespeare University” because the names of the other six universities except the University of East Anglia can be found in Shakespeare’s works. The Bishop of Coventry, Cuthbert Bardsley, named the university “The University of Warwick”.

In 1964, the University of Warwick enrolled a small number of graduate students, and in October 1965 formally enrolled the first batch of undergraduate students with a total of 450 people.

The school was awarded the Royal Charter in 1965, and a number of academic departments have been opened since then.

In 1979, the school integrated the Coventry School of Education and began to gradually expand the campus area to its current size (approximately 2.9 square kilometers), and also built a series of modern buildings. In addition, the school continues to increase the area of ​​lakes and woodland on the campus, and has now become recognized as one of the most beautiful universities in the UK.
