There is also another Residence Life Team event taking place and this time it’s to the Donkey Sanctuary. See below:

Living Experience Survey
Residential Services are sending the Living Experience Survey to all residents within University of Exeter accommodation this 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. Just by taking part you get entered into our prize draw to win one of two £100.00 Amazon vouchers.

Fairtrade Fortnight
As Martin Luther King famously said, ‘before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world’. This is one of the many reasons that the University of Exeter is partaking in Fairtrade Fortnight between 29 February – 13 March 2016. Throughout this time there will be information displayed within our Catered Halls to explain what Fairtrade is all about and they will be promoting the Fairtrade products which are currently being used across Halls.

Exeter - EwaThe Student Switch Off
Student Switch Off is your chance to win prizes for yourself and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for your hall, by doing easy things to save energy.
