Student Homes in Newtown, Exeter
Nestled in the beautiful Devon countryside between Polsloe Road, Old Tiverton Road and Magdalen Road is Newtown, a residential area that students of Exeter love for its charm and proximity with the city centre.
This small district has bags of character due to the period properties and traditional red brick homes that line the streets. Many of the houses here are Victorian and Georgian terraced properties, but there are also a number of modern homes for students seeking something a little more contemporary.
Aside from student homes in Newtown, the area has a number of shops for students to stock up on groceries. Plus, there's a reasonably priced driving range for the avid golfers among you, an indoor ski slope, a swimming pool and a large park; you’ll have to find a good excuse not to keep active if you live here!
Affordability is a key driving factor for students here, as well as being in walking distance to St Luke’s Campus. Need to get to a class the morning after a night out? A short walk will get you there in five minutes, so you can literally roll out of bed and into the lecture theatre!
The vibrant inner-city atmosphere can be felt at night, when students studying at St Luke's and living in Newtown turn the place into party central. It’s likely you’ll start your evening in Newtown before taking a short stroll to the city centre, where you’ll meet your friends in one of Exeter’s many independent bars. When it comes to curing your hangover the next day, follow Polsoe Road down the Gurkha Kitchen for a mouth-watering curry to soak up the alcohol!
