Life on Campus

The Streatham Campus is the largest campus of the three that make up the University of Exeter. Here, students have access to a medical centre, a supermarket, a surplus of eateries and plenty of shops to stock up on necessities. 

It’s also home to the main Students' Union bar, known as the “Ram”, where students can enjoy a quiet drink in the day or a wild night on campus. Whether it’s an open mic night, a karaoke night or a themed pub quiz, it's always a laugh. Cornwall House also has a student bar and a nightclub run by the Students’ Guild!

Current students and alumni cite the warm and welcoming community feel when reviewing the University of Exeter, and it’s easy to see why. At the Student Guild, there are over 250 societies to join including for Pokémon enthusiasts, Harry Potter fans and a climbing club for those seeking to work on their core! There is truly something for everyone, be it a sport, an interest or a faith-based society. For those looking to get a head start on their CV, the SU also provides students the opportunity to get involved with how the Guild is run by applying for executive positions.
