What's in the rooms?

Please check the individual residences on the left hand side to see what is included within your residence.

You will need to bring your own bedding (duvet, sheets, pillow etc). Non-fitted bed sheets are recommended for many of our residences.

The university do not provide pots, pans, cutlery or dining equipment, so you will need to bring your own or buy it when you're here. You can order bedding, kitchen and bathroom items to be delivered directly to your residence and have waiting for you upon arrival via UniKitOut. There is a saving of 10% with discount code EXETER10.

Please read our Moving in checklist‎ for more details of the items you might want to bring.
