Top 10 Academic Venues: Event Exeter at the University of Exeter

Event Exeter is proud to represent the collection of unique venues that span the lush green campuses of the University of Exeter.

A member of the Russell Group and ranked in the World’s top 200, the University offers a self-contained, safe green campus, as well as a plethora of first-class events of all shapes and sizes.

A Place Worth Exploring

The main campus can only be described as a hidden gem in the heart of Exeter, a tranquil haven surrounded by acres of parkland and gardens. Lose yourself in an idyllic green setting and you’ll be hard pressed to believe that you’re just a 10 minute stroll from the vibrant city centre.

Consistently rated as one of the best places to live, work and play in the UK, Exeter certainly packs a punch when it comes to entertainment. Rolling green hills and the stunning Jurassic coastline make the perfect playground for outdoor pursuits and there’s no end of opportunities for visitors to get out and about and explore. From water sports to hikes, shopping to history, the diversity of this magnificent region means you’ll never be short of things to do.

Aside from idyllic surroundings, Event Exeter has access to a portfolio of venues of all shapes and sizes. Whatever your event, be it a large residential conference for over 1,400 or an awards dinner for 500, there’s a venue to fit the bill.

Food For Thought

It’s no secret that food can be a deal-breaker when it comes to the success of an event. 

Whether fuelling delegates during a conference or celebrating success with a lavish awards ceremony, Event Exeter consistently deliver high quality, delicious food and drink. An in-house team of award-winning chefs work closely with clients to deliver innovative, bespoke menus, tailored specifically to each event.

A Place Worth Staying

Located in the stunning South West, Exeter is a lot easier to get to than some may think. Just at the end of the M5 motorway, the capital of Devon is well-connected and within easy reach of the rest of the UK and beyond. With two mainline train stations and an international airport, you are never too far from one of the most beautiful regions in the UK. 

With a range of over 2,000 bedrooms and a further 1200 coming online in 2022, the University can accommodate groups of all sizes and budgets. A stay in Holland Hall, a 4* campus accredited hall of residence, brings with it sweeping views across the Exe Estuary and a real sense of escaping to the countryside. 

Visitors to campus can make the use of the University’s state-of-the-art Sports Park, which is home to some of the best sports facilities in UK Universities, including the outdoor pool, which is a huge hit during summer months.
