Visitor accommodation

Prospective students

If you are a prospective student and just want to look around the campuses you are welcome to visit and view the location of our residences. You will be able to view inside a limited selection of specific residences during Open Days and Offer Holder Visit Days and externally as part of our campus tours. Due to students being in residence and conference commitments, however, it is not possible to view accommodation at any other time. Please view our accommodation virtual tours to see a sample of the rooms available at the University.

See our Open Days page for further information about campus tours including when it is possible to view the accommodation, or contact Student Recruitment on 01392 724043 or enquire online.

Visiting academics, interns or researchers

At certain times of the year the accommodation office might be able to provide short term accommodation to visitors who have an affiliation with the University. Please contact us to check availability. We encourage any visiting academics to have a look at our Studentpad website as some advertisements are intended for 'staff'. If we do have short term accommodation available then in all cases we would require a letter of confirmation from the College confirming your affiliation.

If you are looking for short term accommodation you may find the following websites of interest:

  • AirBnB if you are looking for a house or an apartment 
  • VisitExeter which provides a list of private properties including serviced apartments and houses
  • ESA, a private company specialising in serviced apartments
  • GiL Properties Ltd, a private company specialising in serviced apartments

Bed and Breakfast or Hotels within the city

Outside of term time our Event Exeter team are able to offer B&B accommodation, on campus for visitors. Please see below for some information about other local establishments near to the Streatham Campus, St Luke's Campus, the city centre or on the outskirts of Exeter.
