Student Homes in Heavitree, Exeter

Home to the University of Exeter’s St Luke’s Campus, the historic village of Heavitree in Exeter is quaint, welcoming and well-connected to the rest of the city. Student homes in Heavitree continue to see high demand from those who require quick access to the School of Sport and Health Sciences and the Medical School at Saint Luke’s Campus. As a result, a sense of community has been cultivated in this agricultural village. 

For the active outdoorsy types, Heavitree is a strong contender. Excellent walking tracks and cycle routes are in abundance. Take a long stroll through Heavitree Pleasure Park, a gorgeous green space with beautiful surroundings, or beat your personal best on a run around Hamlin Lane playing fields.

While this location is certainly a rural choice, rest assured that there are still plenty of local amenities that are conveniently located throughout the village. McColls, Tesco Express and Co-Op Food keep students supplied with groceries, and there’s even a Waitrose that you can treat yourself to the day your student loan comes in! The South Lawn Medical Centre is situated in the centre of Heavitree to provide care and offer routine checks for residents.

When it comes to entertainment, the city centre is just a short bus ride away where students can shop, eat, drink and take advantage of a buzzing independent arts scene. That said, a drink at the Pig & Pickle Micropub in Heavitree may soon become your go-to!
