Exeter is a lively student city with a great vibe. Students at the University of Exeter regularly vote their experience into the top ten most satisfied student bodies in the UK in the National Student Survey, which speaks volumes about Exeter student life.
Of course, great student living starts with great accommodation and Exeter is well ahead of the curve. Despite its compact size, the city offers outstanding student accommodation. Collegiate West Gate is the perfect place for those with a keen sense of style who are looking to live just a stone’s throw from the Exeter’s city centre. Just minutes from Exeter Quayside and with the universities campuses reachable by a short bus ride away – everything this cultural city has to offer is on your doorstep.
As well as superior student accommodation, Exeter has plenty of options when it comes to entertainment. From cultural attractions to funky clubs, the city is brimming with activities for the ultimate Exeter student living experience.
Starting with something always close to students’ hearts – their stomachs – Exeter certainly impresses. From giant pizza baskets at the atmospheric Old Firehouse to the tasty snacks in the Impy’s three bars, Exeter has plenty of delicious eateries that will suit all budgets. Tea on the Green is a must for those looking for outstanding cakes, fabulous espresso (arguably the best in the city) and gourmet vegan and gluten free treats.
For a relatively small city, Exeter’s nightlife offers plenty of options. Timepiece is a must for students and if you prefer to sit and sip over a decent pub meal rather than boogie, The Fat Pig is a must-visit establishment. John Gandys is a great option for cocktails, as is The SpeakEasy Cocktail Lounge at ODDFellows (where you can even indulge in a cocktail masterclass in order to learn from the experts). If it’s live music that floats your boat, then Exeter’s Cavern Club may well become your second home!
Exeter student life also has plenty to offer for those who like history and architecture. The Royal Albert Memorial Museum is as grandiose on the inside as it is on the outside, while the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum is fascinating to anyone with an interest in cinema. Clyston Mill allows you to travel back in time to the days when watermills were an essential part of city life, while the smugglers’ cellar at the Fairlynch Museum in Budleigh Salterton is well worth a visit.
Retail therapy in Exeter is also fun, with high street brands rubbing shoulders with independent stores. And to top it all off, there’s the glorious Exeter coastline and a host of associated watersports.
