We're so excited a new space has be opened dedicated to your wellbeing.
We are so excited to introduce you to our new space on campus: Exehale! Exehale is a quiet, calm non-study space on campus designed to allow you to rest and recharge in-between studying. The space was co-designed by myself, the University Welfare team and a group of students.
Exehale is open for students to use during normal Devonshire House opening hours, seven days a week. Anyone using the room must take responsibility for adhering to Covid-19 safety guidance for the use of a shared space. The maximum occupancy is currently six so please make sure you adhere to this guidance – additional info on how to use the space can be found within the room or here: https://www.exeter.ac.uk/wellbeing/about/exehale/
The space has been designed with accessibility at the forefront which has resulted in every decision being made with inclusion being considered. This includes things such as using muted colour schemes and soft furnishing, a variety of seating options, a partitioned off area for privacy, rugs for floor seating, space for wheelchairs and soft lighting options.
You can also find lots of resources on how to access wellbeing support from both the University services and local partners such as Devon Rape Crisis and Together Drug and Alcohol Services.
Exehale is currently a pilot project and we hope that we can make it a permanent fixture. If it is successful we are hoping to expand onto St Luke’s campus too. If you have any thoughts or feedback about the room, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We hope to see you there soon!
