Not found your accommodation for next year yet? Please do not worry! Take a look at the advice below for what you can do:
There’s still time!
You might have heard from returning students that everything gets let really quickly in Exeter, so there isn’t anything left by now. This simply isn’t true – new properties are added all the time, and if you are open to a variety of housing options then there is no need to rush.
There are currently over 100 adverts still live on Studentpad. Over 20 have been added since last week’s Accommodation Fair. Don’t forget that you can sign up for property alerts to be the first to know about those properties which meet your criteria. Find out more about how to use Studentpad in our helpful video.
Get your contract checked – for free!
A contract is a legally binding document between you and your new landlord/property manager so it’s important you understand every part of your agreement before signing. Members of Students’ Guild Advice will be available in DH2 between 2:00pm-4:00pm on the following days this month:
- Monday 3 December
- Wednesday 5 December
- Friday 7 December
- Monday 10 December
- Wednesday 12 December
- Friday 14 December
Just ensure that you bring a hardcopy of your contract along with any questions you may have after reading the contract yourself. This service is for general guidance on your rights and responsibilities and is not legal advice.
Christmas Dinner in catered halls
Christmas comes early to our catered students (who dine in Lopes, Holland Hall or Birks Grange) and arrives on Thursday 6 December between 5:30pm-7:15pm. The following menu (see image – click to enlarge) will be available for free for our catered students. If you are a self-catered student, you can enjoy this Christmas feast for just £4.50. Tickets for self-catered students can be purchased from any of our catered hall receptions.
Bring your own drinks – alcoholic or soft!
