The Dental Education Facility provides a first class environment for the provision of treatment and education. Care is available free of charge from dental students under the supervision of qualified local dentists.

Alongside the educational activities, the European Centre for Environment & Human Health represents part of the University of Exeter Medical School’s research. They focus on the interconnection between the natural environment and human health.
The Knowledge Spa has a cafe with a selection of snacks, sandwiches, and hot and cold drinks. It’s open Monday to Friday from 8am to 3pm.

Rooms can be booked up to four weeks in advance but you require a minimum number of six delegates to be able to book a room. Please remember that members of staff are not permitted to book rooms on behalf of any other external organisations, and if sponsorship is received or delegates are being charged to attend, room hire and external catering prices will apply. You must tell us about this when you book.
All rooms are available in ‘lecture theatre’ style set up. We’ll apply a charge if you need additional equipment or the set up of the room to be changed.
