Choosing your campus

We have three campuses based across two counties in the South West of England.

Students study at either the Exeter campuses or the Penryn campus, it is not possible to study at both.

Exeter Campuses (Streatham & St Luke's)

  • Streatham campus is a registered botanical garden with The Times describing it as the ‘best-gardened campus in Britain’
  • It has benefited from a £380 million investment in student facilities, including a refurbished library, Sports Park and technology rich learning spaces
  • Home to one of the UK’s top Sport and Health Sciences departments, students have studied at the St Luke’s campus for over 160 years and the campus has retained its vibrant, collegiate atmosphere and sense of history
  • St Luke’s campus boasts excellent sport facilities including a sports hall, an air-conditioned health and fitness studio and an indoor heated swimming pool
  • Set in the heart of the beautiful Devon countryside, Exeter is a lively, student-friendly city with a thriving arts and music scene
  • Cafés, restaurants, pubs and shops sit alongside Exeter’s historic buildings such as the 14th century cathedral and Roman walls
  • Exquisite coastline and impressive national parks are only a short drive, cycle, bus or train journey away
