Why live here...

Exeter is a lively and energetic city, and yet is only 10 minutes from the moors and beaches.

The South West

The South West

Students and staff at the University of Exeter, whether based in the city itself or at our campuses in Cornwall, benefit from living in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

With its stunning beaches, sprawling countryside, outstanding quality of life, and increasingly excellent economic prospects, the South West has a great reputation as being one of the very best places to live, work, and study in the UK.
