University of Exeter

The University of Exeter

The University of Exeter is one of the fastest-rising, fastest-growing universities in the UK. We deliver an inspiring first class education, and provide you with the skills necessary for a successful career. We help you make the most of yourself, be who you want to be. 

Our Campuses

The University of Exeter has three campuses;

Streatham Campus

The majority of students are based at the Streatham Campus, which is the largest site in Exeter.

The campus is one of the most beautiful in the country and offers a unique environment in which to study with lakes, parkland, woodland and gardens to enjoy throughout the year.

This is an exciting time to be at the University of Exeter. We have recently invested more than £380 million in facilities on the Streatham Campus including £130 million on student residences, £50 million on the Forum, £25 million on the Business School and £25 million on Biosciences.

St Luke's Campus

St Luke’s is home to Sport and Health Sciences, Medical Sciences and Medicine students.

Students have studied at St Luke’s for over 150 years and although much has changed over the years, the campus has retained a vibrant, collegiate atmosphere in which everyone soon gets to know each other. As you walk through the arches of the traditional North Cloisters you will see the lawns of the quadrangle surrounded by modern teaching buildings.

Academic facilities include a library, which has recently undergone a £1 million refurbishment, IT facilities and support, and modern seminar rooms and lecture theatres. The St Luke’s Campus has excellent facilities for sport including a sports hall, an air-conditioned health and fitness studio and an indoor heated swimming pool.

The Penryn Campus

The Penryn Campus offers the very latest academic, research and residential facilities. Made up of around 4,000 students, the campus gives you intimacy and friendliness, in an arrangement that we think is unique as we share the campus with Falmouth University; a leading specialist arts institution. This combination creates a vibrant mix of students, with a diverse range of interests and backgrounds.
