The University of Exeter continually invests in its properties to provide new facilities and upgrade existing ones.

Work is carefully programmed to avoid disruption to students, particularly during exam periods. However, on occasion there may be some unavoidable disturbance or inconvenience to students.

We will notify you in advance of any significant building works which are in close proximity to your residence and further details will be made available on our website. If you are concerned about any building works which may be scheduled to take place near your accommodation, please contact the Accommodation Office for information. The University will take all reasonable steps to keep this to a minimum, and does not give any rent rebates or compensation.

What works are planned during 2023/24?

West Park student residences

We are proposing to build the new West Park student residences on our Streatham Campus in the area between Holland Hall and Birks Grange Village. The construction work is proposed to start in summer 2023 and we expect the first phase of the accommodation to complete by summer 2025. Holland Hall and Mardon Hall are in close proximity to the construction area. The University will take all reasonable steps to make sure that disruption is kept to a minimum.

Birks Grange Village

We are proposing to refurbish Birks Grange blocks A-E to create modern, self-catered accommodation and construct a new student residences block where the existing reception and dining hall is currently located. The construction work is expected to start from July 2024.

Other works may take place on an ad-hoc basis throughout the year. At this stage we are only aware of the works above. We will inform residents in advance of works with as much notice as possible.
