Great Hall


The University of Exeter always looks forward to welcoming the great variety of conferences from both the UK and overseas, who enjoy staying on campus during the vacations.

Offering a choice of two stunning campuses, both close to the City centre, railway station and airport, they also provide an excellent base to explore the surrounding areas of Devon.

The University's uniquely beautiful Streatham Campus creates a superb learning environment, described by The Times as 'the best gardened campus in Britain' and in The Independent as having 'a sublime setting'. The Streatham Campus is built around a large country estate which meanders over 250 acres of landscaped parkland, woodland, lakes, streams and gardens.

The St Luke's campus is a smaller, self-contained campus, based around an attractive lawned quadrangle and offers a more compact site, which appeals to many of our clients.

Both campuses have an extensive choice of conference and exhibition areas, offering organisers a range of facilities that are second to none.

The team at Event Exeter were hugely proud to learn that their very own Head of Event Sales, Alex Penn, has been shortlisted for the coveted miaList 2019. Shining a light on the very best talent in the events industry, the list aims to recognise those who continuously go above and beyond the call of duty for their organisation - a trait certainly attributable to Alex.

From Sophie Lock, Cogent Events, the event title was “Low Carbon Homes” 05/06/18:

“Very responsive team, Accommodated any changes to our requirements promptly and efficiently. Booking contract updated each time, which provided a clear summary of the latest situation. Everyone in Reed Hall was helpful, friendly and efficient. We couldn’t have asked for better support beforehand and on the day.”

Weekend Breaks in the Heart of Devon

With overnight accommodation close to the centre of Exeter, the University campus is an ideal place to base yourself for a weekend break. Nestled in 300 acres of parkland and botanical gardens, it offers a tranquil haven within walking distance of all the action. Just a short drive away, you’ll reach the beautiful Devonshire countryside and the stunning Jurassic coastline.

 Summer 2019 is set to be a busy one in Exeter. With events such as the Exeter Festival and the Exeter Fringe taking place, not to mention regular features such as Exeter Street Food Market, there really is no shortage of opportunities to fill a weekend break in the city.
