about exeter

Regularly rated as one of the best places to live in the UK, Exeter has plenty on offer for students. The city’s thriving economy means you have a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Big business also means big employment, and Exeter’s huge growth offers some fantastic work opportunities for students.

Whether you want to follow in the footsteps of famous University of Exeter students like J K Rowling and Will Young, or want to live your own way, our student accommodation puts you at the heart of everything.


  • With seven Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you’ll find almost 20% of the UK’s most stunning beauty spots on Exeter’s doorstep. 11 National Trust properties, five Valley Parks, four internationally important Nature Reserves and many, many miles of coastline mean that you’ll be spoilt for choice with places to visit.
  • The Exeter Guildhall is the oldest civic building in Britain. Parts of the building date back to 1160, and it is still a valued part of the community.  The city is also infamous for being the last place where a woman was trialled and executed for witchcraft. The place of trial is now a bar in the city centre called Timepiece!
  • Homes built in Exeter are now six times more energy efficient than when a home was built in the 1900s.
  • Safety and security is key! If you are out and about in Exeter you could be caught on CCTV over 300 times a day.
