Accommodation in Exeter

Building works that may affect residences

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 disruption to a minimum and does not give any rent rebates or compensation. 

Works planned for 2023/24 and 2024/25 

West Park 

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. Holland Hall and Mardon Hall are in close proximity to the construction area but 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 residence block where the existing reception and dining hall is currently located.

Other works may take place on an ad-hoc basis throughout the year but 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.
