Happy New Year to you all. We hope you had a great Christmas vacation and are preparing yourselves for your return to campus this weekend. We know that you will be returning for the exam period and therefore want to wish you all every success during this time.
Puppy love to de-stress
Have you heard the news? Exeter Student Nightline will be hosting a ‘Meet the Guide Dogs’ event on campus. This will take place on Wednesday 10 January and is an opportunity for you to meet and stroke guide dog puppies as a form of relaxation and stress relief during the exam period. This also coincides with ‘Mental Health Month’. Tickets will shortly be available on the Students’ Guild website with a £2.00 donation to the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association. This will allow admission for a 15 minute time slot. Further information, including available time slots are available on the teams Facebook event.
Moving back to catered halls
The return date for students returning to their catered halls is Sunday 7 January from 9:00am. You are not able to arrive or stay in your residence prior to this date due to your contract. Please note that the first meal available upon your return is brunch which will be served between 12:00pm-1:30pm.
We have updated the term two menus, so do take a look at our website to see what is set to tickle your taste buds over the next few months by clicking on the ‘menus’ tab.
Semester one students moving out
Our semester one students are required to vacate their accommodation and return their keys by 10:00am on Saturday 13th January. Please see the moving out information on our website for further advice on what you should do. Please note that we are unable to accommodate any later departures because we have a very short time to clean and complete any maintenance on the rooms before our second semester students arrive.
Semester two students moving in
Our second semester two students are due to arrive on Sunday 14 January (from 4:00pm for students staying at James Owen Court or from 10:00am if staying elsewhere). You will have received information about your arrival via email. If you have any queries about this then please contact the Accommodation Office who will be happy to provide assistance.

Applications for supported returners accommodation will open on Monday 29 January 2018.
To be considered for returners accommodation, support will need to have been received by one of the following support services:
Our Accommodation drop-in sessions begin again on Monday 8 January in the Forum. A member of the Accommodation Office will be available Monday to Friday between 11:00am-3:00pm. Please visit the SID desk and ask to join our queue.
