Accommodation Guarantee

New students

With a range of accommodation options available to suit the needs and budgets of our students, we are able to guarantee an offer of accommodation in university owned, managed or approved residences as long as applications are received by 31 July based on the criteria below:

  • UK, EU, or international undergraduate entering into Year 1, who has firmly accepted the offer of a place at the University of Exeter
  • International postgraduate who has firmly accepted the offer of a place at the University of Exeter
  • Incoming study abroad or exchange student based at the Penryn Campus for the full academic year

We also have a number of spaces for study abroad or exchange students joining the University of Exeter at the Penryn Campus for single semesters. Please contact us directly for further information.

Applications submitted by the deadline of 31 July are prioritised; however, we are not able to guarantee that you will be allocated your preferred accommodation.

We recommend that you list options in order of priority on the application form. Please note, during periods of high demand, we enter into agreements with approved accommodation providers in the local area in order to increase the availability of university owned, managed, or approved accommodation. If your preferred choice is not available, we will offer you an alternative from our accommodation options. If you miss the deadline, you can still apply; however, we are unable to guarantee our usual offer. We review availability in our halls on a regular basis, and if there is nothing available the Accommodation Office will advise and provide assistance in helping you find alternative accommodation.
