Some students are coming to stay with us again for their returning year within our accommodation whereas some students are wanting to leave and terminate their accommodation contracts early. This week we are looking into this as well as the various events which are taking place on campus:
Terminating contracts early
Whether you are leaving the University of Exeter to undertake a placement or you wish to move into private accommodation you are unable to terminate your contract early. Upon accepting your offer of accommodation and paying your deposit you were then legally bound to the accommodation contract and have agreed to stay in your accommodation until the contract end date. You can discuss with us the possibility of a contract takeover whereby a University of Exeter student who is not currently in our accommodation could takeover the remaining contract period of your room. For further information on this please visit the contractual information section of our website.
If you wish to discuss this with a member of the Accommodation Team, we are available in The Forum (via SID) between 11:00am-3:00pm Monday to Friday.
Returning students offers
Students who applied for on-campus returners accommodation will be notified this week, so please check your emails for an update on your application. We will be letting all students know by Friday 5 February.
