Your base for learning and socialising

You’ll find the INTO Exeter Centre on the Streatham Campus. A welcoming, friendly and stylish space with more than 100 dedicated members of staff and excellent facilities. Everything you need is right here.

When you need to study, the Centre is the place to be. There’s an extensive Learning Resource Centre with private study areas, learning materials and computers, and a science laboratory plus two multimedia rooms. You’ll be able to make the most of flexible study spaces for lectures, seminars and tutorials.

When it comes to relaxing, INTO has you covered – unwind with friends in one of the many varied cafés and restaurants, expand your interests and join one of the 200 societies and groups at the Students’ Guild, or head to the on-site Sports Park to keep fit.


There are lots of different ways to learn at the INTO Centre, with 22 classrooms and a range of learning spaces. Whether you’re enjoying a group debate in the lecture theatre or having a one-to-one tutorial session, the Centre has everything you need right here.

Want to study away from the campus? E-learning can also be a big part of your studies. You’ll have access to the University’s virtual learning environment.

It’s also a great place to have online discussions with your teachers and other students.
