University of Exeter Campus

Streatham Campus

Streatham is the main campus, sitting on a hillside one side of which looks down across Exeter city centre. The Independent has described the campus environment as ‘sublime’. The campus has several galleries, including the Bill Douglas Centre for the History of Cinema and Popular Culture. A Sculpture Walk includes pieces by Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.[23] There is a bar called the ‘Ram’ and a bar (previously called the ‘Ewe’) within a nightclub called the Lemon Grove (or ‘Lemmy’), both run by the Students’ Guild. The campus hosts a medical centre, a counselling service, a children’s day-care centre, and numerous catering outlets. Many halls of residence and some self-catering accommodation are located on this campus or in the near vicinity. The Northcott Theatre resides on the campus.

St. Luke’s Campus

St. Luke’s Campus is just over a mile from the larger Streatham campus and ten minutes walk from the centre of Exeter. The campus is home to the largest academic school of the university, the Graduate School of Education. It shares the campus with the Department of Sport and Health Sciences.

The future of St. Luke’s Campus was the subject of a feasibility study in 2007, and a proposal was considered by the university to relocate one of the departments to the Streatham Campus to facilitate future expansion at St. Luke’s. A final decision was taken by the university management team in July 2007, with the Graduate School of Education, the Department of Sport and Health Sciences, and the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry remaining in residence at St. Luke’s.

Penryn Campus

The University of Exeter, Cornwall Campus, is a campus of the University of Exeter in Penryn, Cornwall. The campus is part of the Combined Universities in Cornwall project, and is shared with Falmouth University. University of Exeter departments on the site include the internationally renowned Camborne School of Mines, whose graduates are highly sought after by mining and civil engineering industries as well as the renewable energy sector. Other departments at Penryn include the rapidly growing Centre for Ecology and Conservation (CEC), the Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI), and the Institute of Cornish Studies.
