University of Exeter

Student life

The university has three campuses: Streatham Campus and St Luke's Campus are in Exeter and the Cornwall Campus is at Penryn near Falmouth.

The University of Exeter Students Guild is instrumental in organising special cultural events and programmes for students, and includes the International Student Society as well as several societies dedicated to specific cultures from around the world. There are over 150 student societies and clubs, which students can join. Societies range from Archaeology, Beats and Bass and the Expedition Society to the Lit Soc, Photosoc, Ski Club and Chocolate Society. Leading music bands hold concerts regularly at the Exeter and Cornwall campuses.

Exeter is also excellent for sports-lovers with facilities offered for the following sports - cricket, golf, hockey, netball, rowing, rugby union, sailing, squash, surfing and tennis. The indoor cricket centre on the Streatham Campus is another highlight, as is the indoor heated pool at St Luke’s Campus.


All new international and EU students entering Year 1 of an undergraduate programme who have firmly accepted the offer of a place at the University of Exeter and who have applied for accommodation by 31st July will be guaranteed an offer of a place in University accommodation. University accommodation is owned, managed or approved by the University.

New unaccompanied international postgraduates from outside of the EU in their first year of study will also be guaranteed an offer of a place in University accommodation if their applications for accommodation are received by 31 July 2014 and the student has paid the £2500 tuition fee deposit. International postgraduate students who apply after the above deadline will be offered a place if rooms are still available.

Accommodation options range from catered student halls to self-catered private rooms, and include provision for families and spouses. Students have the option of shared or en-suite facilities.

Exeter’s expenditure on library books, journals and electronic resources is some 35% above the national average in terms of spend per full-time student. There are some 1.2 million books and 1,733 study places in the libraries and 1,000 computer workstations with 24-hour access.

Career services

A new employability centre, "The Career Zone", opened in May 2012, in partnership with the Students’ Guild, as a ‘one stop shop’ for information on graduate jobs, term time work, project placements with local companies, skills training and volunteering.
