University accommodation
If, after receiving your results, you have decided to come to the University of Exeter for 2018/19 and have not yet applied for accommodation – do not fret. Although our guarantee deadline has now passed, you are still able to submit an application online once your academic offer has been made firm through UCAS and with our Admissions Team. Once you receive a firm offer, please allow between one to two working days for your information to update on our system and follow the steps below.

  1. Read the information on our ‘Applying from 1 August onwards‘ page to see which rooms are likely to be available*.
  2. See our prospective students web pages for further information on the different accommodation types and the three standards of rooms we have available.
  3. Make a decision about the type of accommodation you would prefer.
  4. Watch our student led ‘Living in self-catered‘ or ‘Living in catered‘ videos for information on student life.
  5. Follow the information on our ‘how to apply‘ webpage.
  6. Activate an Accommodation Account. (Links to our ‘how to’ video).
  7. Submit an application for accommodation. (Links to our ‘how to’ video).
  8. Follow us on Facebook to be kept updated on any important notes or information about any system downtime.

*Please note that accommodation applications made after 1 August will be dealt with on a first come, first served basis in date order of receipt. We will keep you up-to-date about the availability of University rooms via our daily blog.

If you are offered accommodation to confirm your booking, you will need to ensure that you have approximately £300.00** available in order to pay your accommodation deposit.

**This price may vary if you are offered a room in one of our nominated residences at Point Exe, The Printworks, Northernhay House or Northfield.

Private housing:
You can search for private accommodation in the City through landlords, purpose-built residences through large providers or through student letting agencies via our Studentpad website. View our ‘how to use Studentpad‘ video for a step by step guide on searching for private housing using this site.

We have a dedicated ‘private housing‘ web page which provides advice about looking for accommodation in the City. Further resources can also be found on our July blog post about searching for private accommodation and  our video from students living in private housing.

Undergraduate students – Coming to Exeter and applied before the guarantee deadline?
We will start sending accommodation offers out from Monday 20 August to those students who had Exeter as their first choice of University, applied for accommodation before the guarantee deadline and have now received a confirmed academic place at our Exeter campuses. You will receive an email to advise you when the offer is ready for you to view. Please view our ‘how to accept an offer of accommodation‘ video for a step by step guide on what to do once you receive an offer. Please note that your offer does come with an expiry date!

We will send these offers out in batches (not all at the same time) up until Friday 24 August, so please don’t think that if you haven’t heard earlier in the week that you have missed out. We encourage you to check our ‘Room Allocation Procedure‘ for information on how we allocate rooms.

If you have any enquiries about the application process or have received an offer that you’re not too happy with – before you reject this offer, we strongly recommend that you contact us on 0300 555 0444 to see if we can help.
