This week we are looking at students returning to their accommodation following the Easter vacation and reminding you on our summer accommodation and what is available.
When can I return to my accommodation?
The third term starts again on Tuesday 2 May and students living within our catered halls are able to move back to their residence on Sunday 30 April 2017 from 9:00am. The first meal available upon your return to catered halls on the Sunday will be brunch and then normal meal times will resume.
Students living within our self-catered residences are able to return to their rooms at any time.
Exeter Festival of South West Food and Drink
Students who will be returning to Exeter on the weekend of 28 April – 1 May, please be aware that there might be more traffic on the roads than normal due to the Food Festival taking place. This annual event is well-known across the South West and it’s definitely something to try and visit if you are back in the city at this time. It takes place in the courtyard of Exeter Castle and in Northernhay Gardens which are in the heart of the city centre. This year it includes three ‘After Dark’ music festivals featuring local bands. You can visit either both the day and night or just choose one to attend. Price information and further details are available on their website.
What summer accommodation is available?
This year, we are able to offer summer accommodation for a single en-suite rooms at James Owen Court or a studio at Birks Grange Village. Summer accommodation is available for students whose contracts end in June/July but wish to remain in University of Exeter accommodation for longer or for any current University of Exeter students who wish to stay in our accommodation during the summer vacation with a valid Student ID card. Summer accommodation is available between 17 June and 2 September 2017 for a minimum contract length of four weeks.
Applications for summer accommodation will open on Monday 24 April 2017 and will be processed on first come first serve basis and subject to availability. The initial deadline for applications is Friday 12 May 2017. For further information please see our summer accommodation webpages.
Who can I contact?
The Accommodation Office can be contacted between 9:00am-5:00pm Monday to Friday via SID or by contacting us via our Facebook page. Please refer to your Residence Reception webpage to see when they are available. Our Accommodation drop-in sessions will be starting up again during the first week of term. More information about this will be provided in next week’s blog.
