Private accommodation in the city for 2017/18
There is a misconception that students are required to live in University of Exeter accommodation for their first year. This is not the case at all ast students can either live at home and commute, live in a shared house/flat or choose to live in purpose-built accommodation in the city. Private accommodation within the city centre includes the following:

  • Purpose-built private halls of residence through larger providers.
  • Shared houses and flats through private landlords.
  • Shared houses and flats through student letting agencies.

Adverts for 2017/18 are now available on the university property search engine at: which include short-term and PGCE lettings. We encourage you to visit our dedicated webpage for private accommodation prior to beginning your search. This link provides information and advice about searching for accommodation within the city. For any further information then please refer to our blog post.
