Exeter College

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.

Facilities include an on-site gym, stunning dining hall, cosy bar, chapel, music practice rooms, performance space, 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.

Exeter is...

…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.
