How to apply
Applications for new students (2017/18) will open at midday on 10 April 2017.
Accommodation applications are made via Room Service, our online application system. In order to complete an application you must have accepted and confirmed the University of Exeter as your first choice. Accommodation information will be sent to you via email once you have accepted a firm course offer.
To register through Room Service and make an application you will need:
- Your nine digit student ID number (Exeter Ref No.) which will be sent in an email with a link to our website (this is not your UCAS number)
- Your last name (or family name)
- Your date of birth
- An email address that will be available to you through to October (a school or college email address is not suitable)
If you are unsure of your student ID number please contact the Admissions team.
When you have successfully registered online, you will receive an automated email message with a validation code that will need to be entered the first time you log in. Once you have logged in you will be able to complete and submit an online application form.
When you log in to Room Service, you will be asked to provide details of at least one guarantor. You must gain your guarantor’s consent and agreement before providing their details to us. A guarantor is usually a parent, guardian or family relation with whom we may communicate regarding your accommodation fees. The guarantor agrees to meet any outstanding costs that exceed the set deposit if the contracted person fails to pay.
Once you have entered your guarantor information you will then be taken through the application pages where you will be asked to select your accommodation preferences. Once you submit your online application you will receive an email confirming this and information on what happens next. You can also log in to your online Room Service account to check the status of your application.
