Train: the nearest rail station to Exeter University is Exeter St David’s station. This is the main line station with a direct connection to London Paddington station (approx 2 hours 15 mins).  (Exeter “Central” station is on a local branch line and is not very close to campus.)

Exeter St David’s station is a 15 minute walk to the Streatham campus (the accommodation at Holland Hall is one of the nearest parts of campus to the station). It is well-sign-posted but it is up a steep hill. There are taxis available at the station if you prefer.
