Although not one of my choices for accommodation this is honestly the best option, not only are you a short walk from town but also located halfway between St Luke’s and Streatham campus. The staff are all so caring and helpful ready to chat at reception whenever you see them and with high quality facilities such as the TV lounges, the gym and study room ... this really did make my first year even better at Clifford. Would recommend 100% :)
I stayed at Clifford house the year it opened in the 2019/20 year, overall I really enjoyed my stay at Clifford house. I did not opt for Clifford house in my selections and was concerned about being off campus, after staying there for a few days, it was clear that this wasn't really a problem. The location is okay, it is a 15-20 minute walk to campus, depending on the part of campus you are going to. Importantly, Clifford House is located virtually in the centre between campus and the city centre, so going out was much more accessible for me living in Clifford House than my friends on campus. The rooms and kitchens were probably the nicest I have seen on campus, and the common room and the study space were extremely useful and seem somewhat unique to Clifford House, along with the cinema rooms that I also ended up using all the time.
The staff are very friendly & helpful. They host different types of event nights to get everyone involved and make sure we have things to do. The location is a good distance inbetween uni & town. The building itself is probably the nicest accommodation I’ve ever seen! Would recommend 100%.
I could not be more happy that I ended up in Clifford House as it truly made my first year university experience that much better. Everything about the accommodation was incredible and it was clear from the outset that the Clifford team really cared about ensuring the best possible experience for all of their students, even knowing us by name. I’ve had to summarise my praises as I hit the character limit but essentially everything from the building itself, to the amenities available, to how clean the building was kept, to the number of people in each flat, to the quality and size of the rooms, bed and shower, to the storage space available, to the activities organised, to the support in place for fixing things and and most notably to the care and dedication of Matthew and his team, made my first year experience incredible. Thank you so much 😊
Clifford House is easily the best accommodation in Exeter. I live in a flat and the rooms are a great size, beds are so comfy and the kitchens are really nice. The staff are very helpful and you can collect your parcels at any time as there is always someone there to pick them up! There is also lots of communal space e.g. the study lounge is well equipped and spacious and the TV lounges make the perfect place to chill with your friends in the evening. Overall I would definitely recommend this accommodation to any students coming to Exeter!
6 flats to one large kitchen, plenty of cupboards for everyone and a large table and smart TV in each kitchen. Good location for both campuses and close to town. Gated off so feels really safe. Football stadium is right next to building, can be loud, but usually only every other week on a Saturday. Kitchen isn't cleaned which is one of the main downsides I find. The staff are amazing, so lovely and always have quizzes, activities, pancakes etc. for us so it really feels like home. There's a massive social area on the ground floor with table tennis, shuffleboard, games and a TV, a TV room on floors 2, 3 and 4, a communal kitchen on floor 1 and a study space on floor 1. There's also a gym and the staff have free yoga/circuit classes there every week. The other only issue I have is that if your room faces the courtyard/smoking area it can be loud in the evening and smell like smoke. The positives well outweigh the negatives though and it's such a great place to live.
Easily the best halls! The people who the run the halls are absolutely amazing holding weekly social events like making us pancakes in the morning. In terms of the location, its a quick 10 minutes from the centre of campus which is the same as some of the halls on campus and is right next to all the night clubs because it's 5 minutes from town :)
