Location & Parking: We are closer than you think! The M4 and M5 link directly from London, the Midlands, South Wales, the North and Scotland – we are only 3 hours from London! Getting in and around the city couldn’t be easier. We have a public bus that comes directly onto campus (the D bus) and are just a 15 minute walk away from the city centre, 5 minutes from a mainline train station and 20 minutes from Exeter International airport.
Restaurants: An alternative to the buffet lunch is a servery lunch in the Woodbridge Restaurant. The glass doors across the back of the Woodbridge open out onto the botanical gardens, adding an extra special dimension to any lunch.

Conference and Meeting Facilities

Whether you’d rather rock out to the Kaiser Chiefs, take in the culture of a BSO performance, plan a 1500 delegate conference or just love the glamour of a gala dinner– our Great Hall is famously adaptable.
Alternatively, Grade II Italianate mansion, Reed Hall, is a client favourite for day meetings and weddings – it even comes with a duck pond!
Still not impressed? What about a state-of-the-art conference centre with tiered lecture theatres, exhibition areas and breakout spaces?
All set in 300 acres of botanical gardens, yet only 10 minutes from Exeter City Centre, five minutes to the train station and 20 minutes from the international airport!

"The 2018 International Conference on Microwave Magnetics (ICMM) conference was a great success. We received numerous positive comments from its delegates on the location at the University of Exeter, the facilities, staff and the organisation of the technical and social program of the conference.
“Our event specialists were present throughout the conference to efficiently solve any last minute challenges. Prior to the conference, they both helped a great deal with the organisation of our delegate accommodation needs, the conference venue, and the catering.
“We look forward to hosting our next international conference at the University of Exeter.” - ICMM Organiser 2018


With an extensive range of over 1,000 bedrooms, the University of Exeter can cater for large residential conferences as well as smaller events and day meetings. There is a wide range of activities to do both on campus and in the local area for those who wish to make the most of their spare time or extend their stay.

"I must write to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Holland Hall last week. All the staff, from reception, room servicing and catering, were helpful and friendly. A special mention must be made for the serving staff in the dining room - they went beyond the normal call of service, they were excellent." - Weston Walking Group (August 2018)


At Event Exeter we can cater to your every need. We will work around your conference schedule to serve refreshments at a time convenient to yourself. Our award winning dining is also not to be missed; whether you would like a quick buffet lunch, drinks reception or formal gala dinner to entertain your delegates in the evening, we can cater to your requirements.

"The food was tremendously good; all my guests were so pleased." - The happy couple (wedding)

Location and Transport Links

The campus is located conveniently close to Exeter city centre and the open countryside and coastline of Devon. Exeter St David’s train station is just a short taxi ride or walk away and Exeter International airport has links across the UK and Europe. Car parking is available on campus on a first-come-first-served basis.

“We held the Exeter Construction Group Gala Dinner at the Great Hall. This was our biggest event to date, with almost 400 guests. The service received from the University was fantastic, both in the lead up to the event and on the day. The events team were incredibly helpful and accommodating. The service on the night was excellent and the food was very good, particularly considering the numbers, and we received compliments from our guests. We would definitely consider holding further events at the University.” ECG Gala Dinner, (2018)
