Applications open 8 April 2013

Calling all new students joining us in September! We will accept accommodation applications from you from 8 April onwards - remember to select the 'New Undergraduate' or 'New Postgraduate' application types.

Returners' rooms are fully booked for 2013/14!

From your first year to your final year University accommodation has got so much to offer, and this year a large number of students have applied to stay in our residences for a further year.

Whilst you are still able to make an application at this stage, it will not be processed but will be held on our records in case the situation changes.

In the meantime there is plenty of alternative accommodation in the private sector from purpose-built accommodation to shared houses and flats.

Check out Studentpad for a full list of available options.

Rent freeze for 2013/14

After working closely with the Students' Guild over 3000 bedrooms will have their rents frozen for the 2013/14 academic year, as the University of Exeter demonstrates its commitment to offering value for money accommodation and supporting student hardship issues.

More than 800 bedrooms will see their rents decrease, taking the number of bedrooms with rents below £100 per week to 750.

This means that over 4000 students who move into University and UPP accommodation will benefit from even greater value for money.

Rents will start at £98 per week. 

Competition Winners

The lucky winners of three iPads were drawn by Tricia Punchard, Assistant Director (Residences) on Wednesday 31 October. Students who had registered their interest in University accommodation at the Housing Roadshow in January 2012 and subsequently taken up accommodation this year were entered into the draw for the iPads which were presented to George Fishwisk, Angela Nemeth and Yan Qiu.

Catered meal replacements

Did you know that, if for academic, timetabling or society reasons, or if you have an unavoidable commitment, you are unable to attend the dinner service, you can request a replacement meal? Simpy complete and submit our meal replacement form by 10am the day before the meal is required.

Cleaning guide

The University has a Cleaning guide offering cleaning tips and advice. This has been created to help you keep your accommodation and communal facilities to high standard of cleanliness. 

The weekly Cleaning guide rota template is highly recommended. Print off copies and use them to help plan the week ahead.

Heating in residences

Heating in University residences will usually be switched on between October and May (subject to extreme temperatures).

The heating system is controlled to ensure the University avoids energy wastage and to minimise emissions of carbon dioxide, a key global warming gas. It also keeps heating costs, which are reflected in hall fees, to a minimum.  

A Residence Heating Guide is available.
