March is here already, it really did creep up on us even though we had an extra day in February to prepare ourselves. This means that we are nearing the Easter vacation. Please see below for information about Easter and what to do if you’re in catered halls. We are also looking at the Living Experience Survey which has been sent to all of our residents, the Clean for the Queen campaign and what’s on at our very own Campus Cinema. See below for more information:
Easter Vacation Accommodation
Students living in catered accommodation need to vacate* their rooms by 10:00am on Saturday 26 March for the Easter vacation and return on Sunday 24 April. If you require self-catered accommodation for this period then please come and see a member of the Accommodation Team to discuss availability. We are available between 11:00am-3:00pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday in the Forum (via SID). We are currently unavailable on Wednesday’s due to the Offer Holder Visit Days taking place, however, you can still telephone us on 0300 555 0444 on those days.
*Please note that in some residences, students are required to take their belongings with them also. Please check this information with your Residence Reception.
Living Experience Survey
Residential Services have sent the Living Experience Survey to all residents within University of Exeter accommodation last week. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and is a great way of getting your feedback in order for us to improve the services and facilities we provide to all students living in University accommodation. Students who take part will get entered into our prize draw to win one of two £100.00 Amazon vouchers. The closing date for this is Monday 14 March 2016.
With the Oscars taking place at the weekend it seemed like a good time to let you all know about our very own Campus Cinema. The Cinema is located in Devonshire House’s M&D Room and over the next few weeks it is showing some of the Oscar winners and nominees including: The Revenant, Spotlight, Room and the new smash hit film Deadpool. For information about film times and prices, please visit the Campus Cinema website.
Clean for the Queen
The national initiative is centered on cleaning up Britain in time for Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday, which will be officially celebrated in June 2016. In support of the Keep Britain Tidy campaign to ‘Clean for the Queen’ students and staff at the University of Exeter are invited to take part in a litter pick event tomorrow (Friday 4 March) between 12:00-14:30. Please meet at the Birks Grange Village Plaza.
