The University is justifiably proud  that the majority of the targets set out in the original 10 year sustainable travel plan (2007 - 2017) were achieved in the first 3 years and we have seen a significant shift towards more sustainable travel choices amongst our staff and students

Travelling by rail


Exeter's two mainline railway stations are Exeter St David's and Exeter Central. The Streatham campus is a 15 minute walk from St David's station and 20 minutes from Exeter Central station. The walking route is signed from St David's' station and the campus map shows the walking route.

Interest-free loan

For employees who travel to and from the campuses by train regularly, the University can provide an interest-free loan for the purchase of an annual rail season ticket, subject to certain conditions. To view the conditions, and to apply, complete the PD16 form.
