Exeter has its own international airport, which provides a number of great transport services across the UK. Other excellent transport services include the two main train stations in Exeter, which are Exeter St Davids and Exeter Central. There are also a number of bus and coach services that run regularly.

The campus at Exeter is within walking distance of the city centre and therefore the majority of students travel via bicycle or on foot.

For those that live in Falmouth there are regular buses that run through and drop off at the University so travelling to the campus is very easy.

Living in the area

The majority of social venues for students tend to be located in the heart of the city. The most popular clubs in the city include Timepiece, Mosaic and Rococo’s. However, there are also a number of veues on the outskirts of Exeter, for example Arena. In combination with this there are a range of student nights run by the union at The Lemon Grove and Cross Keys, which is situated on St. Luke’s Campus. Cross Keys tends to be popular for its range of BOPS that it holds throughout the academic year. Throughout the week all of the clubs listed above hold student nights on various nights of the week and so cosequently students tend to go out Monday-Friday.

Exeter has a huge variety of shops to offer. There are a number of key areas and each has its own uniqueness. The Princesshay Quarter and the Cathedral Quarter both offer a different but old fashioned feel with independent boutiques coupled with restaurants and cafes. The High Street is where you will find an array of the most popular High Street stores. Harlequins and Guildhall also have a number of High Street shops.
Lastly, if you are looking for some independent quirky shops, which offer a range of different products, the place to visit is the West Quarter.
