The University in the community
We provide information and guidance for students living and socialising off-campus, also information for permanent local residents who live alongside students and have an interest in the University's development.
We understand that social differences between students and permanent local residents can sometimes cause tension. We believe that such tensions can be resolved when there are more opportunities for communication and meaningful engagement. The University's Community Liaison Manager works to enhance relationships with local communities.
The University also provides many services and facilities that are available to members of the public, contact us directly to find out more.

Student Community Wardens
Student Community Wardens encourage the integration of students as active citizens and facilitate the work of the Community Liaison Officer. Student Wardens work closely with the Students’ Guild, local Police and City Council to support fellow students living off-campus.
There are two Student Community Warden teams. The Exeter East Team and the Exeter West Team provide a supportive presence to students living across the wards of St James, St David's, Pennsylvania, Newtown and Polsloe.
Wardens conduct 'walkabouts' in their area, signpost students with community queries, attend community meetings and develop termly community projects. Wardens also facilitate ongoing campaigns and initiatives, including the end of term 3, Students On The Move refuse removal scheme. They can help to security-mark your valuables, stencil your property number onto your bin and they also run a glass caddying scheme at the end of each term to help collect and recycle your glass.
Wardens have access to the StreetWise fund, financing projects that bring students and permanent residents together.
Local wardens wear branded Student Community Warden jackets, hoodies and polo shirts and are always happy to chat. To contact directly please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Community Warden scheme has been developed and supported by the University, Exeter Community Safety Partnership, and Devon and Cornwall Constabulary.
