Reed Hall

Exeter School of Art was founded in 1855 and the Exeter School of Science in 1863. In 1868, the Schools of Art and Science moved to the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Queen Street, Exeter, and in 1893, with support from the University of Cambridge, became the Exeter Technical and University Extension College. In 1900 it became the Royal Albert Memorial College and the college moved to Bradninch Place in Gandy Street and in 1922 was renamed the University College of the South West of England and as usual for new university institutions in the 19th and the early part of the 20th centuries, the college prepared students for external degrees of the University of London. Reed Hall after its benefactor William Henry Reed and the first of the purpose-built halls of residence, Mardon Hall, opened in 1933. The University College of the South West of England became the University of Exeter and received its royal charter in 1955 and between 1963 and 1968, the number of students at Exeter almost doubled when ten major buildings were completed on the Streatham estate. The University of Exeter is a research university in the West Country of England, with its main campus in Exeter, Devon but the university has four campuses: Streatham and St Luke's in Exeter and Truro and Penryn in Cornwall.
