Everything you need is in walkable distance. The surrounding areas are what sold it to me- Dartmoor, beaches, the river. Great location to go to university.

Study in Exeter

The University of Exeter is just a short walk from Exeter city centre. The Streatham Campus is on the edge of the city, and St Luke’s Campus is right in the heart of the town.

Exeter Student Life

Exeter is the centre point of Devon, a lively city but in easy reach of beautiful countryside and with a coastline to explore. It is often rated the best place to live, work and study in the UK. 

Cost of Living

Train tickets are super cheap here compared to the south east. Rents are a bit pricey, but it depends where you go. Some a cheap and good value for money.

Pubs are great, some are a bit too "locally". Not many clubs, but still a good night out.

The nightlife might be a bit limited in choice but the venues that do exist are all a fun experience which can fully satisfy the students.

Best night of your life…

In reality the nights out are shoddy but if you go out to have a good time you'll have the best night of your life.

In terms of nights out there are a good selection of clubs and bars to suit anyone's taste from Arena playing popular and chart music to the more indie playlist at Timepiece or Cavern. There's also a small but thriving gay club.

Public Transport

To get around Exeter itself you will find walking and cycling an easy option. When you want to get out of the city there are two train stations, Exeter Central and Exeter St Davids. The St Davids' line takes you off to the rest of Devon, while the Central line can have you in London Paddington in about 2 hours 30 minutes. Exeter is also well connected by a number of coach companies which offer budget-friendly travel across the UK.

Shopping 

Heading to the Quayside area by the river, which is famous for its a slightly eclectic range of shops, will take you past a lot of the city’s attractions including the High Street and several shopping centres. The Princesshay Shopping Centre, a big complex of brand name and designer shops, is also in the city centre.

The Great Outdoors

Exeter is on the River Exe which is just 10 miles from the coast, making it an ideal city location for water sports. You can hire canoes and kayaks as well as bikes and make your way along the canal to Double Locks and Turf Locks Inn, two great student-friendly pubs.

Dartmoor National Park

Dartmoor is a half an hour drive away, where you can experience fantastic hikes across a stunning landscape of forests, wetlands, rivers and tors.

Beaches

Just half an hour outside of Exeter there are many beautiful sandy beaches to choose from. Favourites are Dawlish Beach, Dawlish Warren Beach and Exmouth Beach.

Cost of living is great here I find it to be affordable. Eating out is good I just wish there were more restaurants to be opened :')) Night outs I would say they are ok, don't get me wrong I love my night outs but my personal experience I personally think they are just alright, I met some lovely people along the way tho so cheers to that :DD. For shopping I wish they have more shops too :'). Public transport are complete here, I cant really judge tbh I havent been to all places in the UK so I'm not the most reliable person to answer this question. Overall I love it, it is peaceful here not a bustling city but it is quiet and safe here. I love it. read more

Exeter is a great little town. It’s got everything you realistically need compressed into quite a small place.

Tp and fever are definitely the best clubs but I only go about once a week as beyond first term there’s more things to do, especially with Exeters wide range of little coffee shops and small restaurants. read more

So basically to talk about cost of living it is little pricey but then I am okay with the budget because I’m living in a studio and also whenever I have to purchase something I go with my friends so we all of us share together so that is how we don’t feel that it is much expensive because we are sharing. Coming to eating out as I am an Indian I prefer eating spicy food but then GDK and EFES is my go to place and also subway. I have experienced a best night outs in EXETER I had been to Bollywood night 15 days back and it was just amazing. Shopping is my favourite part I love shopping from Primark H&M Zara next look in Marks & Spencer. Lastly about public transport there is lot of facility to travel from one place to another but then I feel that is little price to travel for short distance. read more

Great access to two train stations: Exeter Central and Exeter St Davids not to far away walking distance.

Beautiful spots such as the Quay (with lots of activities on such as cycling, kayaking, canoeing), and the stunning Cathedral (especially at the Christmas market), and Exeter tunnels!

Exeter is a small, compact city. Most shops and services (supermarket, restaurant, cinemas, shopping mall, barber shop and even adult toys shop) are within walking distance The downside is that other than clubbing, there is almost no nighttime entertainments. 24 hr shops are seldom. Public transport is not needed unless you live in the distant suburbs or need to travel to nearby settlements like Exmouth. read more

Cost of living in Exeter isn’t bad at all, I live in off campus accommodation that is very close to the town and it’s still fairly priced for how close it is. Public transport I haven’t used myself but I always see lots of buses and there’s quite a few train lines etc. The shopping and variety of clubs and places to eat out is great compared to where I lived before.

Not that expensive to live but certainly not cheap, decent selection of restaurants. TERRIBLE night life, not that many bars in exeter just pubs and shoddy sports bars. Every night out feels like you've gone to the local full of old men or the famous imperial which is just packed and theres always a queue. Clubs are just cheesy rubbish and there's no name brand clubs or bars. If you care about nightlife Exeter is not the uni for you, I regularly go to Bristol for nights out instead. read more

Though Exeter is small, there’s still plenty to do with friends. The restaurant varieties are good, and the nightlife is what you would expect for a University city. I recommend Exeter to people who like smaller, quieter areas that are still full of life. read more

The cost of living is more expensive compared to other cities, however Exeter is a real nice place to live. There a tons of great restaurants and pubs to eat in which don’t cost an arm and leg to eat out at. The variety of nights out aren’t as great as big cities like Newcastle Leeds Bristol etc but still a good few clubs. Not a huge fan of the public transport as it is just seems to be made up of packed single decker buses. Other cities have trams. read more

The cost of going out in Exeter e.g. to the pub or clubbing is actually pretty low, with cheap drinks like £2 for a jaeger bomb in clubs and 3 Wetherspoons however housing and accommodation is very expensive, more expensive than I have heard in any other university. Even though there aren't loads of clubs, 2 of them are very good nights out. read more

Exeter is a town that completely comes alive during term time. It is a small town but has everything you need and is full of interesting characters. If you want to be in the middle of a bustling place, Exeter is probably not for you. If you are looking for a mix between busy and slow, a little bit of country life mixed with city life. You can live very comfortably without a lot of money to spare and there are many cheap alternatives. Student budgeting is not hard. read more

As a Northern girl the expense of Exeter (Exetah) was a shock to the system. However, this city, though small, has everything old and new. Such a pretty city with so much history but all the shops you could ever need on your doorstep. Lots of cute independent shops. A million and one places to eat out, everywhere has a pretty view especially around cathedral green and down by the quay. Nights out are of a lower key than I was used to, you have to go out quite early and there's not a lot of choice, but I've grown to like the casual nights out at cheesies on a Tuesday or magic hatstand at cavern. read more

For a small count...

For a small countryside town Exeter has a huge amount to offer. This is the perfect destination for student's who want the cleaner air and pleasant surroundings that a more rural location provides without sacrificing on amenities. The Princesshay shopping district and Guildhall Shopping Centre in the centre of town offer a huge array of outlets and restaurants. The council offers licenses to local buskers who provide entertainment and there is an outdoor food market every day with a farmer's market once a week. In terms of nights out there are a good selection of clubs and bars to suit anyone's taste from Arena playing popular and chart music to the more indie playlist at Timepiece or Cavern. There's also a small but thriving gay club. read more

Exeter is an awesome university town, with low crime rates, an awesome vibe and lovely views in the surrounding area. Houses off campus are usually good quality but are on the expensive side p/w cost. Plethora of shopping available and because of the tourists to the area there is always lots to do around town including ghost tours, farmers markets etc. The university has tons to offer, as it is one of the biggest and best student guilds in the country! read more

This is a review for students: Student housing isn't cheap, but is affordable. Night life is exactly what you expect it to be! It's a small city but no matter what night you go out you'll see dozens of people you know. It's a very safe city compared to some and everything is pretty much a maximum of a 15 minute walk away, whether that's from uni, halls or in the student housing area. read more
