Exeter one is good value for money, lots of space, with modern rooms and kitchens. It is a 10 - 15 minute walk from the Streatham campus, that is a little tiring but not unbearable. It’s a little closed off in terms of socialising but it really depends on your own mindset...if you come to make friends and make an effort you can definitely do so. In summary, it’s a good hall.

I have loved living at Exeter One during my first year at university. Even though all my lectures were at St.Luke's campus, a good 45 minute walk away, the staff are so lovely, and my flatmates so great, that it was definitely worth it. But saying that, wouldn't recommend it for students based at st Luke's unless you really like walking (or buses)! The flats are really nice, well furnished and a good size, the WiFi is good, and if anything ever stops working or breaks you can count on the one-man show that is maintenance to sort it out! The staff are approachable and lovely so if you ever have any problems or just fancy a chat, you can just head to reception. The common room is a really nice space to study and socialise, and reception puts on some really great events in there as well. The town is a 25 minute walk away, but there are regular buses from Exeter One to town if you don't fancy the walk :)

Exeter One, and Homes for Students, have really helpful staff which makes choosing it a to live an easy choice. It is also located within walking distance to the uni campus and the train station, so it is in a great spot. The hill up to the campus can be a bit of a killer bit exercise never hurts! There is a bus stop outside that goes into town too. The rooms are a great size and the kitchens are modern and clean. All in all I would highly recommend Exeter one ,it’s good value for money, it’s in a great location and the social spaces it provides lets you meet a bunch of new friends!

I've loved living in Exeter One for my 1st Year of Uni. The reception team are so welcoming, involving and easy to talk to if you need anything fixed in your flat. The walk to Streatham is uphill for 10-15 mins but it's a good form of exercise. It's not the most convenient location for big supermarket shops/ clubbing since town is a 25/30 min walk but essentials can be bought from the Esso garage just outside or you can get a cheap bus back! The rooms are nice and the kitchen is much more spacious and modern compared to others so I'd say it's good value for money. Would recommend this accommodation to anyone who doesn't mind a bit of extra walking to see friends and go to lectures. If your bedroom is facing the road, you can barely hear any noise. It has never disturbed my revision! Overall, was very happy living here :)

From what ive heard from my friends and their accommodations, I wouldnt want to live anywhere else in exeter. - Lovely staff that put effort into giving us social events that put other accommodations to shame - Common room equipped with Sky Sports, pool table etc - Problems with your room gert solved quickly - 24hr service station+subway next door Ive already re-booked for next year. However be prepared for the hill to campus, it can be a killer sometimes.

Covid-19: I thought this was optional

The staff are all really friendly and very accommodating. The halls are also a good distance from the main campus, and there is a garage close-by with a good range of food items. Whilst it is not the closest accommodation to the main city centre, it is an easily walkable distance, and its proximity to the main train station in Exeter (about 15 minutes) is very convenient.

Overall ok but I wouldn't recommend. It's right next to a busy road on one side and a train tracks on the other. Whilst the windows do a good job of cancelling out the sound, when your windows are open, I find fumes coming from all different directions whilst I'm studying and often have to just keep it closed. Additionally, in summer the halls are extremely hot but sadly you cant leave your windows open overnight because the trains going past are so loud. Make sure to invest in a fan, as your room will turn into a furnace otherwise. This halls is also quite isolated and you have to get the bus into town every time you want to go shopping. There is a petrol garage for immediate essentials but this is really quite expensive so I try to avoid it. The best thing about this is probably the friendly staff - friendly and efficient. The social area is small (the photos online made it seem a bit bigger) and there are a limited amount of plugs, but it has a pool table which is cool.

The accommodation was good, I liked my room a lot and the position is strategic. It is really close to a gas station that runs 24/7 providing food and basic supplies. I also really liked the position in terms of distance from the city centre and from the centre of the campus. The social experience for me was not the greatest, but this was probably due to my bad luck in terms of flat mates. In the overall I suggest it, it is a great accommodation that provides services like yoga and workout classes!

Thank you for your feedback.

Although we are not city centre located, we are only a 15 minute walk to the University itself. In regards to the rooms, thank you for your comments. We do understand that the roads can be a little noisy during peak times. We have installed well structured windows and when closed they do cancel out the vast majority of noise. We will take your comments on board and look to make further improvements for future residents.

Although quite expensive and far out over all is a good accommodation. The management here are by far what makes the accommodation a lovely place to live. Any maintenance problems are usually fixed straight away (like same day) and the management in reception are the most welcoming. Only improvements would be newer furniture and more social events in the common room, there have so been many. Something on almost every week- which you don’t get at other accommodations, just wish more revolved around socialising rather than fitness etc.

Exeter One like many things is what you make of it. I have had the most wonderful year living in my flat. It is a very nice building with all the essentials you require as a student. The staff are some of the nicest and most accommodating group of people you will have as landlords and building managers. They will go out of their way to help and get to know you. You can not go wrong by staying here. Do your research though if you want to live closer to town or campus look at your options. You cant get a better situation for the money though.

Thank you for your review on Exeter One and thank you again for your kind words. We really do strive as a team to make everyone feel welcome here and have the best time that they can and will go above and beyond to do so. With regards to the city centre, you're right. Although we are only a 15 minute walk from the campus the walk to the city centre can take around 25 minutes. However; there are plenty of busses heading straight into the city centre and as you stated, we are one of thecheapest accomodations within the city. Thank you again, Team Exeter One.

This is my first year with Exeter One and I love it. The floor and the room is clean. The studio room is very spacious to workout or have a clutter free room. However, it is far from the city centre, there is a bus station outside the accommodation directly. The walking to university is somewhat far up the hill but, what is a great way to have a walk as an exercise with busy student life where it is hard to have a workout schedule. The tuesday workout session is fun and the common room is big enough to study and have fun outside your room. Lee Ann is very supportive and solves your queries with a smile on her face. Kevin is the person you need in the accommodation with wishing you a good morning whenver he sees you and for any maintenace or fixes in your room. The price of the studio room is fairly cheap to have with a big room, wide desk and a private kitchen. I would recommend this accommodation.

I have given this rate for certain reasons also been a student for 3 years and tried several different accommodations and I have tried the studio room. The place is a complete joke, I couldnt sleep from the loud noises of the trains and quite long walk of 25 minutes to the Forum which is the main building at the university. Furniture is quite old, management is undescribeavle such that you need to pay a fee if you left your keys by mistake in your room after 5 p.m and till 9 a.m the next morning for calling an external security company. The place is remote and when I call it far I mean 30 mins walking to city centre and buses are not frequent. Plus the place is not worth at all what you pay for. Social life is really low and maintenance is literally terrible. Really cant see any point of staying here but would never think about this place.

The place is modern, new and clean. It's around 15 minutes from the main campus of Streatham. The staff were nice but nothing amazing and did not organize any events so it could be hard to met others people except your roomates. There is nothing around except the Esso shop who can provide you some food which is sometimes useful. It's 30 - 40 minutes from the city centre, the only place where you can find foostore. So you either have the choice to take the bus (1,80 pound one way) or to use food Delivery service. Finally, the rent is as expensive as other uni accomodation but which are better located. I would not recommend this place is not well located and you will not enjoy your stay in Exeter as much as if you were staying downtown.

Mansion one was a nice experience. Not much to say. It ran well. I think that the 24 hour store just around the corner mitigated the distance from the city center. There is also a direct bus from the front of the halls to the city center and to the university. It is around 15 minutes walking distance to the business school (An uphill climb through the halls. However if you took the flatter route, it would take you around 30 minutes). The rent is decent and it has been a very international accommodation. This is the best part, as you will meet people and normally become very close friends with people from countries you only heard the name maybe once or twice (Looking at you Suriname) lol

Really not impressed after a year of living there...... You're treated like a customer every step of the way. For wifi, although all residents are entitled to Wi-Fi, you can get "better" Wi-Fi at higher speeds and bandwidth by paying £15.00 a month. Key systems are built so you leave your key in your room and it'll lock you outside automatically. So people rarely leave their rooms, you won't meet anyone outside your flatmates in Mansion Exeter. Location's not bad I guess, and they do clean the corridors, but I really wouldn't recommend this place unless you're beyond desperate.
