University students and staff

University students and staff are able to use the DEI free of charge due to a funding agreement with the University of Exeter.

Please order your membership online and then provide identification to the DEI Office to validate your application.

A user guide for students has been prepared by Miranda Fern, our June 2016 University Intern:

The Devon and Exeter Institution user guide



“The Institution is, to me, an essential learning and studying space that I have been honoured to use since I joined the university.

To be able to enter a space filled with beautiful heritage that is calm, quiet and completely free from the distractions of the university campus is a huge privilege.  I will never forget the times spent with my fellow students on dark cold evenings in December, where working on essays in such an incredible building becomes a joy rather than a chore.”
