Accommodation in Exeter

Visitors and overnight guests

It’s great to be able to meet up with friends but there must be no more than 4 visitors or guests in your shared flat or studio room at any one time.

If you’d like to have an overnight guest, please email from your University of Exeter email account (so that we can verify who is making the request) with the following information:

  • Student name and student number 
  • Residence – building, block, flat number, and room number 
  • Arrival date 
  • Departure date 
  • Confirmation that guest is over 18

You should give at least 72 hours’ notice and have written permission from the Residence Management Team, who will consider fire and safety implications.  

Only one occasional adult (18 years and older) guest at any one time is allowed and that visitor may not stay overnight for more than three consecutive nights. The Residence Management Team will withdraw permission for guests if their behaviour is deemed antisocial or unacceptable.

To allow everyone space to adjust to university living, permission will not be given for overnight guests over Welcome Weekend or Welcome Week. 

Students should note the conditions in section 2.5 of the Terms and Conditions of Residence.
