Exeter is the fourth-oldest college in Oxford, with a small, friendly and inclusive community of students and staff. Accommodation is provided for three years of an undergraduate’s course and probably for a fourth year. All first years live on the main college Turl Street site. Other college accommodation is in vibrant east Oxford (with self-catering facilities) and the modern Cohen Quadrangle in fashionable Jericho. Three meals a day can be eaten in hall during term.
Students have exclusive access to our college careers office and internship programme. Facilities include an extensive library (open 24/7 during term), on-site gym, stunning dining hall, cosy bar, chapel, music practice rooms, performance space, music room, learning space and sports ground. We have a beautiful garden, with views over Radcliffe Square. Exeter is home to a wide range of student groups, clubs and societies, including our excellent student-led choir, music, theatre and sports teams.

…small enough that you’ll never feel lost, but big enough that everyone finds their place. It’s a very inclusive and diverse environment, making it easy to settle in.
…impressive catering facilities, particularly at lunch time where there’s so much choice on offer.
…having communal spaces which are really well used.
…having fun with college sports teams – they’re all really close and friendly communities, as I’ve found with the rugby team.

In order to make it easier for you to establish a first point of contact with our University, every Oxford college is ‘linked’ to a particular region of the UK. The ‘link’ college will know their region particularly well and already have contact with schools and students in the area.
Getting in touch with the college linked to your region has no influence on your chances of being accepted to this or any other particular college. You are also very welcome to get in touch with any other college for advice about applying or studying here.
