Living in Exeter One for the last two years has allowed me to meet people who are now my closest friends. The rooms are so much nicer than you would find in other student accommodations, with spacious en-suite bathrooms and a really nice modern kitchen too. One of the best things about the accommodation is the reception team, who are always so helpful and willing to go above and beyond to make your time there as happy as possible. Definitely one of the best accommodations for students studying in Exeter!

The accommodation is very good. The management team in particular are excellent. The location is a bit far from town but there is an esso right next to it for any emergency food. The social spaces and experience are very good there a nice large open common room to hang out with other students in and study in.

Exeter one is amazing value for money compared to the other university accommodations considering an en suite room is cheaper here than a shared bathroom at Birks Grange village. The staff are really friendly and easy to talk to. Overall a great accommodation.

Staff at reception, especially Lee-Anne, are so kind and are always welcoming and eager to have a chat. I feel so at home at Exeter One and this is all thanks to the staff; there is always something fun happening that allows us to socialise while also remain socially distanced from other students. Lee-Anne is extremely dedicated to the accommodation and is definitely what makes living here worth it!!!!

Brilliant student hall, the staff have tried really hard to make sure we have a good year despite the circumstances we’ve had to come to uni in. The rooms are even bigger than they look in the photos and much nicer than other student halls (but cheaper). Fast wifi, would recommend !!

The accommodation locates next to the river and within beautiful scene. This helps me to comfortably studying at my room rather than going to the University during this unprecedented time (Covid-19). The staff at the reception are extremely friendly and supporters. I live in a studio, now for two months, and I confirm that the block where I live (Block D) is very quiet. I am thinking of living there for another year. The only downside which I hope to solve is improving the system and handling of parcel deliveries. Thank you Exeter One.

Thank you for your recent review of Exeter One and we really appreciate your thoughts.

 

With regads to the handling of parcels, the reason we currently have it like we do is in order to minimise the handling of parcels due to the current COVID situation. 

This will change once everything is more relaxed.

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!
