Day Students

Day students join in all campus activities and often eat three meals a day in our dining halls. They can spend weekends in the dorm, or host boarding friends at home for a weekend or a vacation break.

If you live in one of these nearby towns, you’re just a short drive away from Exeter and are required to apply as a day student.

"I'm on campus every single day and I'm always doing things with friends on Saturday night. I feel like an important part of the community." — Nik, day student
