The things I enjoyed most about my semester at the Penryn Campus were all of the great people I met and the laid back, summer-like, friendly atmosphere that this campus exudes.

The information below will direct you to information regarding housing options for your exchange programme at the University of Exeter.

Exeter Campuses (Streatham and St Lukes)

University owned or managed accommodation is guaranteed to:

  • inbound exchange students studying for the full academic year, starting in September; who apply before the accommodation deadline

Please note: Students who are allocated university-owned accommodation may be located with first-year students.

The University is unable to guarantee accommodation for single semester students. Whilst there will be a limited number of university-owned rooms available, the majority of students will seek accommodation in the private sector.  

Exeter is a compact, safe and student-friendly city. The majority of University students live in or close to the city centre, either in purpose built, privately owned student accommodation or in shared housing. The Short Term Accommodation leaflet will guide you through this process.

Further information about accommodation can be viewed on the Accommodation webpage for Erasmus/Exchange students.
