Contract 2019/20

If you are made an offer of accommodation it will contain information and guidance about the terms and conditions that apply to your residency in accommodation, and the regulations applicable to University residences.

Please ensure you read all the information in your offer in full before making your decision whether to accept the offer of accommodation.

The accommodation offer contains information that will help make your stay at the University of Exeter as easy and as pleasant as possible. The information it contains is not exhaustive but may give answers to some questions about your accommodation.

Many of the student residences in Exeter are owned and managed by the University, however some are either owned or managed by carefully selected partners. These partners will usually employ their own staff to carry out services such as reception, cleaning and maintenance.

If you are resident in one of our nominated properties (Northfield, Northernhay House, Point Exe, The Printworks or Clifford House) your accommodation contract will be with our partners and you should refer to their websites for contractual information about these residences.
