Good morning everyone!
It has been another wet and windy week in Exeter! However, on the plus side, many of us are enjoying the novelty of being able to eat and drink indoors again! (Who would’ve thought this would be so exciting?!) today’s blog is focusing on accommodation applications for prospective students that don’t meet the accommodation guarantee. This will include those of you have Exeter as your insurance choice, who will be applying for accommodation post-results day. However, there’s no need to worry if you aren’t necessarily covered

Our Guarantee

We welcome applications from all students and guarantee to make you an offer of accommodation if you apply by 31 July 2021 and are:

  • An undergraduate unaccompanied home or international student who has firmly accepted an offer of a place at the University of Exeter and will be entering their first year of study (i.e. Year 1).
  • An unaccompanied incoming study abroad or Erasmus student at studying at the University of Exeter for the full academic year starting in September.
  • An unaccompanied* international postgraduate in your first year of study for the full academic year starting in September as a full-time student. Note: You are defined as an international student if you pay international fees.

Applying after the deadline

If Exeter is your insurance offer and if you don’t get the grades you expected, it’s disappointing but things do often work out for the best!

Whether you’re coming through clearing or insurance, we do look forward to welcoming you to the University of Exeter. You will not be able to apply until you’ve firmly accepted your place with us. This will need to be confirmed by the admissions team. Once you have a confirmed place and student number, we encourage you to apply for your accommodation as soon as possible. For more information please see our applying after the guarantee webpage.

When allocating accommodation to those who apply after the 31 July guarantee deadline, we will process these applications in the order that we receive them and we will offer a place in University owned/managed/approved accommodation if rooms are still available.

Private Accommodation

If we aren’t able to offer you accommodation, Exeter is a lovely city and living off campus has the benefit of being both close to the city centre and within walking distance to both Streatham and St Luke’s campuses. To get an insight into what living off campus may be like take a look at this accommodation video featuring students living off campus. We recommend that you look at our private housing options which include purpose-built accommodation, very similar to what’s available on campus.

We hope that you’ve found this weeks blog insightful. Please do remember to get in contact with us if you have any questions.

Have a great week!
