Approx Jewish Students on campus - 40+

Here at Exeter, we are open to students of all backgrounds, both religious and secular students will find the society both fun and useful! We showcase the best of our culture and religion by always bringing a modern twist: annual festivals, Friday Night Dinners, Hebrew lessons, and much more.

Our students are diverse and come from many parts of the world and each has a unique connection to Judaism, be it cultural or religious. We make sure to accommodate all students in our society and make our events varied and fun for people of all backgrounds and faiths.

The society is here to assist its students in any way possible, our members study many different disciplines at the University and are always here to help with anything. Additionally, our Chaplin Tony Reese is here to help with anything, no matter how big or small!

You will find opportunities to have fun, network, get assistance in your studies and personal life, and much more in Exeter JSoc.

Campus Notes

The uni (aside from the Tremough Campus in Cornwall) is split into two campuses, both just minutes from the centre of town. Streatham, the main campus, is where most students are based and it’s a great place to be. The library is open 24 hours a day and there are several eateries, cafes and spaces to chill out. There is lots of green space too, as well as a number of hall bars and the campus nightclub. There are also great gym facilities.

Exeter as a city is obviously a lot smaller than most, but the nightlife is great. There’s a decent number of clubs, bars and some fab restaurants. The theatre scene also comes highly recommended and rarely a night goes by without a few live music events.
