About the University gardens

The University of Exeter’s Green Flag awarded Streatham and St Luke’s Campuses are acknowledged as the most beautiful and botanically interesting of any UK University. Streatham Campus is described by The Times as the ‘best-gardened campus in Britain’ and by The Independent as having a ‘sublime’ setting.

The Streatham Campus is a registered botanic garden and both campuses display examples of the University’s National Collection of Azara (a South American evergreen shrub).

The grounds also feature excellent sporting facilities and provide a fantastic environment for staff, students and visitors.  The total area of the University's estates totals 153 hectares:  Streatham Campus covers 114 hectares and St Luke's covers 8 hectares.

A team of 37 staff, including apprentices work on the grounds, nursery and outdoor sports facilities throughout the year.
