The high street sandwich chain will start work on the new University of Exeter site in the next few weeks. 

The shop is expected to open towards the end of April – it follows the opening of Pret’s first Exeter premises last September.

Caroline Cromar, Pret’s group director of food, said: “We’re thrilled to be opening our first ever university shop. This is an exciting new area for Pret, and one that we hope will have a real impact on the students living and studying on campus.”

Phil Attwell, director of campus services at the University of Exeter, said: “We are delighted to welcome Pret’s inaugural campus shop at the heart of our Streatham Campus. The new outlet will help to further expand the offering of fresh, healthy foods available to our staff and students.”
