Accommodation Applications Update

This week a lot of students have asked for an update on their accommodation application, so we thought we would tell you how we are processing the applications we have received.

Applied before 31 July?

New Undergraduate student entering Year 1

If you have an unconditional academic offer from the University – i.e. you have all your results and had you place confirmed – you should receive an offer of accommodation by Tuesday 11 August. If you do not, then please contact us.

If you have a conditional academic offer from the University – i.e. you are waiting for exam results – your application will be processed once the academic place is confirmed (i.e. after results are published). You are guaranteed a place in our accommodation and we will let you know exactly what accommodation we can offer you from Monday 17 August onwards and you should receive your offer before 31 August.

New International Postgraduate/PhD

Your application will now be processed and we will let you know what accommodation we can offer to you by Friday 14 August.

Applied since 1st August?

Applying after the guarantee deadline (31 July) means that we will consider your application and advise you if we can offer you accommodation. We will get back to you with an update towards the end of August, once we have confirmed how many rooms we still have available in our accommodation.

Already booked your accommodation with us?

If you already have accepted your accommodation offer and paid your deposit you will get and email from us this week telling you what you should do next. Before you come to Exeter, you will need to read our online induction and book an arrival slot (see last week’s blog). Booking an arrival slot means that we will be expecting you and will be able to welcome you to your new home. We need to make sure that each student has enough time to unload their belongings, so if you’re coming by car, book an arrival slot and you’ll have 20 minutes to unload at your residence. After unloading, you can move your vehicle to somewhere else on campus where you can leave it for longer.

Look out for the email telling you that you can log on and use the system to read the induction and book an arrival slot so that you can have your choice of arrival day and time.

So, that should answer your questions about your application but if you have any other questions about arriving to University, do get in touch by telephoning on 0300 555 0444 or emailing us at
