Lovely city with even better surroundings. Limited number of clubs and pubs make it the perfect Uni location for a year. If you love the outdoors, it's a perfect spot to explore national parks, coast lines and the odd trip to Cornwall. It's getting quite expensive and you can feel that some places are rather pretentious, immitating London. But overall, a lot of flair!

Such an incredible city with lots of exiting things to do. Plenty of places to eat out and go for walks, etc. Couldn't ask for a better place to live.

It was good and enjoyable with many places to eat and shop at. However, these can add up with myself spending £500 each month

Plenty to do with a few clubs and bars in the city centre, all needed shops for food and shopping are within city centre and doesn't take long to reach. However value for money living wise is steep and tough to reach so we are forced to rent outside of town

Exeter is the perfect small city. You have the bonus of shops, clubs, bars, pubs with the feel of a town. You're close to the countryside, river and coast so it really is a special part of the country. Everything is relatively cheap with lots to do. The only downside is the number of clubs but they grow on you over the years!

For people who don't like super busy places, Exeter is a pretty decent place with a lot of greens. It can get a little boring sometimes, but as long as you have friends to do things with it's fine. It is a little far from London and basically everywhere else. I am an international student so flying back home and then back to Exeter is a huge hassle, but it doesn't bother me that much. Things here are relatively cheap. It's a small place but it's not small to the point where you have no place to shop at.

The city is fairly small (similar to Guildford in Surrey), but has a lot in it. The shops are good, clubs are fairly cheap, and there are loads of food options. The clubs are decent, although the options are slightly limited, and some feel fairly generic. Better music venues, that attracted bigger names, would make the city much better for students in my opinion. Overall though, Exeter is a very nice place to live as a student.

Good transport links by train to Most parts of the UK making getting to university easy. The city of Exeter itself is small and compact so you can walk to most points in the city in less then 30 minutes max and buses do also provide transport to most places too if you do not wish to walk.

Wish there was more food outlets on campus, esp specific restaurants/cafes to sit down Exeter is a really good city for shopping one of the biggest in the south-west, however wish there was some nearer outer town shopping outlets etc somewhere else to go and shop Housing is expensive and a hassle to secure

Lovely city, always plenty to do and all the shops you could need. The night life is not the most vibrant, however Exeter pulls it out the bag with the odd music event.

Really nice city, the nightlife is pretty good and you have several kebab choices. Quite hilly so can be a trek. Can get a direct train from Waterloo or Woking which is great.

The Streatham Campus of Exeter Uni, as it says in the name, is a campus. Nevertheless, it is really close to the city centre; no more than a 15 minute casual stroll. The city centre has every shop you could imagine, and a great range of restaurants for all price ranges. Nights out might not be like in London as clubs close fairly early, but they are still decent nights out, which always ends up cheesy chips: classic.

I have had an amazing time living as a student in Exeter, although I probably would not continue on living here after graduation. There is definitely enough to keep you busy here with your friends (lots of really good value restaurants, a couple of cinemas, some pretty good high street shops and lots of nice cafés) but there are only a few nightclubs so the nightlife is obviously not as varied as it would be at Universities in bigger cities like London. I love that, because Exeter is a smaller city, you can walk quickly and easily to the centre of town, to campus and to your friends’ houses so everything feels very accessible. You are also not far from Exmouth beach, which is great in the Summer.
