From your new home at Exeter One, you can catch a bus to the city centre in just 10 minutes. Discover everything from fine art to archaeological treasures at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, then spend the rest of the afternoon picnicking by the ancient Roman wall that runs through beautiful Northernhay Gardens. Stop in at Mashawi for a cup of thick Lebanese coffee, or meet your friends for artisan bagels in The Glorious Art House’s courtyard garden. In the evening, treat yourself to a vintage cocktail or two while watching a play at underground arts space The Bike Shed Theatre.
With the University of Exeter just 15 minutes’ walk away, getting to class is easy from Exeter One – whether you choose to have the privacy of a self-contained studio or company in a shared apartment. Keep a bike in the safe storage for getting around on weekends, or catch the bus from the stop down the street. When you want to explore further afield, take a 15-minute stroll to Exeter St Davids train station.
Wherever your adventures take you, your fully furnished apartment is a great place to come home to. Flip on your kettle in the kitchen area, find a tasty snack in the fridge, then curl up in front of your favourite TV shows. Later, use the Wi-Fi to upload new photos to Instagram, or to kick back on your comfy bed and Skype home. If you’ve got work to finish, take your notes down from the shelf and get started at your desk. With CCTV and gated entry offering absolute peace of mind, there’s nothing to distract you from the job at hand.
When you’re done, pack a gym bag and walk across campus to the University of Exeter Sports Park. Spend an hour or two using the state-of-the-art facilities for tennis, golf, swimming or cricket, then head home to throw your clothes in the laundry and rinse off in your private ensuite. Recharge your batteries with a homemade meal in your apartment’s kitchen, then meet your friends in the common room for a few games of pool. If you feel like a night out, head to popular student bar The Imperial for a pint in the Victorian beer garden instead.
