When you think about starting university, you expect to be filled with excitement about what the next three or four years of your life will be like. But you may still be nervous about what the whole experience will be like. This is completely normal, and we've put together some common concerns from students and how to deal with them.
Student Homes in Exeter.
For a few years now, The Printworks in Exeter has long been a firm favourite with University of Exeter students. From en-suite shared flats to live with friends through to a range of studio and apartment types, there’s something for everyone. And that’s not to mention the amazing facilities including a gym, study room and a common room to relax in after a long day at university.
We like to think of The Printworks as that pair of Air Force 1’s, comfortable, popular, stylish and go with every outfit you can think of. And just like those Nike’s; The Printworks provides a comfortable, stylish space where every student feels welcome and at home. With the city centre and both uni campuses just a short stroll away it’s hard to beat. Rooms at The Printworks start at £158pw. Take a look for yourself (or take a 360 tour):
But for the 2021/22 academic year we’re expanding your options in Exeter. We’ve added three new student homes to the Host family. And we’re sure, that just like The Printworks they’ll soon be a firm favourite with students in Exeter. We already have exciting plans in place to refurbish these new locations over this summer and next (we’ll go into detail about the refurbishment in a future blog).
Our new student homes.
All three locations are within easy reach of the main Exeter campuses, the city centre and the railway stations. And each has its own character and offer you a choice of rooms that will suit everyone’s needs and budget.
Where are the new student homes?
Located right in the city centre, Northernhay gives you a choice of living options. Students living at Northernhay House have a choice of a range of rooms including non-en-suite, en-suite and studio rooms. What makes Northernhay House great is its location.
Exeter’s shops, restaurants, bars, clubs and all the history and culture are all within touching distance of this student home. A cheeky pint of cider and some amazing pizzas tickle your fancy? The famous The Old Firehouse is literally across the road.
The stunning Northernhay Gardens and Exeter Castle are also next door and when it comes to the uni commute, St Luke’s campus is just a 12-minute walk away and Streatham campus is only 20-minutes away too.
Rooms at Northernhay House start at £135pw.
Love football? Exeter City’s St James’ park is just 5 minutes’ walk away from Trust House and for those lazy summer evenings, Belmont Park is just around the corner for a kick-about after university.
A short 10-minute walk from the city centre, Trust House gives you all the amenities of city living without the hustle and bustle of being right in the city centre mix.
On-site at this student home you’ll find space to study, space to relax and have a game of pool and even an outdoor courtyard for those warmer evenings. And when it comes to your living space you can choose from a range of En-suite and studio rooms.
Getting to and from uni is really easy, you can be at St Luke’s Campus in just 10-minutes, and Streatham Campus in 20-minutes.
Rooms at Trust House start at £165pw.
Arriving by train to Exeter, you’re in luck! The Northfield is only a 5-minute walk from Exeter St. David’s railway station. There’s even a footpath linking you directly to the entrance; meaning you can explore all the South-West has to offer in no time at all.
The Northfield student home is opposite Stratham Campus; which means you could roll out of bed and into your lectures in the morning. The city centre and all that Exeter has to offer is just a 20-minute walk away, while St Luke’s campus is around 25 minutes’ walk from The Northfield.
The Northfield has a real community feel with a range of en-suite and studio rooms spread across 5 different blocks all sharing a common room and games area to relax in, a quiet study room when you want to escape your student room or the university library.
Rooms at The Northfield start at £185pw.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
