About The Halls

The City Arcade student accommodation gets its name from the fact that it once was a large shopping arcade, bustling with throngs of people who came to shop in Exeter. Today, this handsome historic building has been converted into one of the most beloved student accommodations in Exeter. The place is situated within comfortable walking distance from major universities like the University of Exeter and the St Luke’s Campus. This means that you will be able to walk to uni when you choose to live here, saving you a lot of travel expenses.

The different types of places available at The City Arcade student halls include cluster en-suites both standard and premium. You can also choose to live in a premium cluster situated at the top floor of the building, which offers stunning views. Everything from the beds to the common spaces are designed to be spacious, allowing you room to breathe and be yourself.

The many different amenities offered by The City Arcade student accommodation include high-speed internet access across the property, dedicated bike storage areas where you can stow away your bikes when they are not in use, on-site laundry facilities where you can do your washing with ease, etc. The best part about living at the accommodation, apart from its fascinating architecture, is the fact that your monthly rent includes all the bills so you don’t have to worry about fluctuating bills.

When it comes to the physical safety and psychological security of the students, The City Arcade student halls have everything from secure door entry to CCTV coverage, on-site teams and maintenance staff positioned right at the property. This ensures that the students can enjoy a hassle free stay throughout.

About Exeter

Exeter is a beautiful city that boasts of a rich heritage and culture. Once a major Roman centre, the city today has successfully evolved into a centre for education and commerce. Apart from that, the place also enjoys healthy tourism owing to its many places of interest. When in Exeter, you can visit the stunning Exeter Cathedral or the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery.

For the ones willing to dive even further into the history of the place, walking along the underground passages and tunnels is an excellent way to travel in time. The historic quayside of Exeter remains a favourite amongst locals and visitors alike. You can spend the morning or afternoons by the water’s edge, enjoy kayaking and other fun activities.

The days when you want to add thrill to your exploration, the Crealy Theme Park and Resort offers excellent options. Since Devon is a brethtakingly beautiful area in itself, getting out of the city and enjoying the many trails and natural surroundings is a total no-brainier. You can visit one of the many preserved wildlife areas and get lost in the abundance of natural beauty. The place also offers some truly magnificent beaches where you can enjoy strolls and stunning sunsets.
