The Grounds Team have proudly celebrated the successful re-achievement of the prestigious Green Flag Award for 2019/20 for our beautiful Streatham Campus and St Luke’s Campus.
The Award is the mark of a quality park or green space which has achieved the international standards for open space excellence and reflects the hard work that our dedicated team put into maintaining and nurturing our grounds to the highest standards.
Streatham Campus receives the award for the eighth consecutive year and St Luke’s Campus for the sixth consecutive year.
Iain Park, Director of Grounds at the University of Exeter, said “We were delighted to re-secure the Green Flag Awards and the public vote is another chance to make people aware of the University’s beautiful grounds. We are proud of the horticulture and open space maintenance that our staff manage to achieve for students, staff and visitors to enjoy as part of continued promotion of the University”.
The Green Flag Award scheme is run by Keep Britain Tidy and last year tens of thousands of people voted for their favourite park or green space.

We are delighted to announce that once again we have been awarded the Green Flag Award for both our Streatham Campus and our St Luke’s Campus; a sign to visitors, staff and students that the grounds are maintained and managed to the highest standards with excellent facilities.
The Award reflects the hard work that our dedicated Grounds staff put into maintaining the University’s grounds and we are all extremely proud of this achievement and the beautiful grounds we work in.

Green Flag Award 2017/18 Certificate – St Luke’s Campus
As mentioned in previous posts, we have retained our Green Flags at both St. Luke’s and Streatham Campuses. We have now had our flag raising ceremony at Streatham Campus, we were not able to have a similar ceremony at St. Luke’s due to building work going on near the flagpole. We were, however, able to have photos taken in the beautiful staff garden at St. Luke’s and the sun even tried to shine for us a bit.

We are delighted to be able to announce that both the St Luke’s Campus and Streatham Campus have been awarded the Green Flag, recognising them as being among the best green spaces in the country. The Green Flag judges assessed us against eight strict criteria including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability and community involvement. Our Grounds Teams work extremely hard to ensure the grounds are looking their best, so it is great to get this award in recognition.
We will be having our flag-raising ceremonies in the next couple of weeks, so we will post more photos when we get them, until then, we can show off our certificates!
