Beautiful city and campus, very hilly though so if you're not a big fan of walking I wouldn't recommend. Loads of shopping and restaurants etc. in town and exmouth beach is great in the summer after the exams
Nightlife isn't great compared to other university cities like bristol and cardiff which have an amazing nightlife, but good enough for me (I like going out but not every night), lots of pubs in town and a few on campus, 3/4 GOOD nightclubs and a few more not so good (many are good only on certain nights, like my hometown they have promo nights for different clubs).
Lafrowda accomodation is the biggest on campus so the most social/lively but there are lots of options in terms of catered/self-catered and ensuite/studio/shared bathrooms etc., and when you apply for halls and stuff they ask you to specify what your hobbies are roughly and whether you're ok with drinking/loud people or not. I'm not sporty but there's a lot of sport societies and a few gyms. So basically if you're looking for a party uni this is not for you but for me its a good mix
In terms of the not so good element, there were rumours etc. about it being a 'racist' uni but that's basically because there was a group chat with some students in it that made some inappropriate comments, so not really a uni problem but a few isolated people (some of which were kicked out I think) and I personally have never seen any examples of it (but tbf I'm white so its less likely I would see it). There are posh kids here but most of them are in catered halls and I've never really met snobby people, I'm from a state school and not very well off and I've never felt excluded or anything.
Any more specific questions about certain elements of exeter feel free to ask
