Consultation on our new Civic University and Community Engagement Strategy

We want to hear from you! The University will be launching a new Civic University and Community Engagement Strategy in the Spring.  We have developed a draft vision for the Strategy, a set of principles which underpin it, and ten strategic aims. We are now inviting views on our thinking so far from our staff, our students, our partners and members of our communities in Devon and Cornwall.

There is a set of questions in the consultation document‌ and we would like to hear your answers to these questions, and any other comments you may have. Please email your responses to

Term One Plan

As a new academic year begins, University and Students' Guild staff will be working with student Welcome Team volunteers and a range of external partners to help welcome new students to Exeter.

We recognise that Freshers' Week and week one of term can be disruptive, with many students moving in, socialising in the city centre and travelling back to their accommodation late at night.

Please view our ‌‌Term One Plan 2018 to explore the campaigns and initiatives we have invested in to encourage new students to socialise safely and responsibly. We have also described initiatives that aim to support returning students living in private accommodation.

If you have any questions regarding the Term One Plan, or students living in the community, please contact our Community Liaison Officer, Rory Cunningham on 01392 723721 or email
