The University of Exeter is a public research university in Exeter, Devon, South West England, United Kingdom. Its predecessor institutions, St Luke's College, Exeter School of Science, Exeter School of Art, and the Camborne School of Mines were established in 1838, 1855, 1863, and 1888 respectively. These institutions later formed the University of Exeter after receiving its royal charter in 1955. In post-nominals, the University of Exeter is abbreviated as Exon. (from the Latin Exoniensis), and is the suffix given to honorary and academic degrees from the university.The university has four campuses: Streatham and St Luke's (both of which are in Exeter); and Truro and Penryn (both of which are in Cornwall). The university is primarily located in the city of Exeter, Devon, where it is the principal higher education institution. Streatham is the largest campus containing many of the university's administrative buildings. The Penryn campus is maintained in conjunction with Falmouth University under the Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC) initiative. The Exeter Streatham Campus Library holds more than 1.2 million physical library resources, including historical journals and special collections. The annual income of the institution for 2019–20 was £478.3 million of which £93.2 million was from research grants and contracts, with an expenditure of £410.1 million. Exeter is a member of the Russell Group of research-intensive UK universities and is also a member of Universities UK, the European University Association, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities and an accredited institution of the Association of MBAs (AMBA).To celebrate the educational and scientific work of Prince Albert, and inspired by the Great Exhibition of 1851, Exeter School of Art in 1855 and the Exeter School of Science in 1863 were founded. In 1868, the Schools of Art and Science relocated to Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Queen Street, Exeter and, with support from the University of Cambridge, became the Exeter Technical and University Extension College in 1893. In 1900 its official title was changed to the Royal Albert Memorial College and the college moved to Bradninch Place in Gandy Street. The college was again renamed to the University College of the South West of England in 1922 after the college was incorporated under the Companies Act and included on the list of institutions eligible to receive funds from the then University Grants Committee. As was customary for new university institutions in England in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the college prepared students for external degrees of the University of London.Alderman W H Reed, a former mayor of Exeter, donated Streatham Hall on the Streatham Estate to the new University College in 1922. Streatham Hall was renamed to Reed Hall after its benefactor. At the same time, the first principal of the University College, later Sir Hector Hetherington (1920–24), persuaded the Council of the College to buy a major portion of the Streatham Estate. A slow move to the Streatham Estate from the centre of the city occurred over time. The first new building erected on the Streatham Estate was the Washington Singer building; the foundation stone was laid by the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), then President of the University College of the South West of England. The building was opened in 1931. The first of the purpose-built halls of residence, Mardon Hall, opened in 1933. The second academic building on the estate was the Roborough Library named in recognition of the interest taken in the development of the college by the first Lord Roborough, one of its early benefactors. Roborough Library was completed around 1939The University of Exeter has been dedicated to discovery and changing lives through education since 1851 when the Exeter Schools of Art and Science were founded. In 1922 we became the University College of the South West, receiving our Charter in 1955, achieving full university status and becoming the University of Exeter. The University was joined in 1978 by St Luke’s College of Education (est. 1840) and in 2004 we opened the Penryn Campus, expanding the provision of higher education in Cornwall. Today, we’re a member of the Russell Group, recognised for both our research and teaching excellence.Key to our success are our two Cornwall campuses: the Truro Campus and the Knowledge Spa on the Royal Cornwall Hospital site, and the Penryn Campus where some of the world’s biggest challenges relating to the environment, health and sustainability are tackled. Our Truro Campus is a base for a proportion of students from the University’s College of Medicine and Health, as well as the European Centre for Environment and Human Health. On our Penryn Campus, investments to the Science and Engineering Research Support Facility (SERSF) and the Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) put not only the University, but also Cornwall as a whole, at the forefront of research aiming to solve problems associated with environmental change. This commitment to sustainability underpins our ethos and recurs throughout our degree programmes as well as in student societies, clubs and the running of the campus.Our Penryn Campus currently supports around 6,000 students. It offers a close-knit friendly community, in an arrangement that is unique as the campus is shared with Falmouth University; a leading specialist arts institution. This combination creates a vibrant community of students and academics from science, engineering, humanities and arts backgrounds.
