Exeter is the fourth oldest of the University Colleges. From the Fellows’ Garden with its famous view over Radcliffe Square to its soaring Chapel and wood-panelled Dining Hall, it’s stunning beauty makes it one of the treasures of Oxford.
Through the centuries, it has been home to renowned figures in literature, science and the arts, including JRR Tolkien, Sir Roger Bannister and Philip Pullman. Located in the very heart of the city, it is just minutes away from shops, museums and transport links. Exeter served as a film location for parts of the 2007 film The Golden Compass, based on Pullman’s novel Northern Lights and the well known, fictitious Inspector Morse died in the front quad of the College.
