Good morning everyone!
We hope that you all enjoyed the beautiful weather last week and it’ll soon be the Easter Holidays! Applications open on Monday so we thought that we’d go through a few things to consider beforehand.

Activating an accommodation account

Before you can apply for accommodation, you need to activate an accommodation account, you can do this now prior to applications opening on the 4th April.

Please ensure you have your nine digit student ID number ready. This is likely to start with a ’71’ or ’72’. It is also known as a ‘University of Exeter Reference Number’ and will be found on any University correspondence.

Our ‘how to apply’ webpage should provide you with useful information on how to activate an accommodation account and how to submit your application. If you are struggling to log in please check the following things:

Your offer: You will need to have accepted a firm offer to be able to apply for accommodation. If Exeter is your insurance choice then you won’t be able to apply until August once you have changed Exeter to your firm. Please note you may need to wait a couple of days after accepting for this to be updated on our systems.

Student number:  This is not your UCAS number, Exeter student numbers should appear on any correspondence and will be 9 digits long (it should begin with a 6 or 7 depending on when you applied for accommodation)

D.O.B: Ensure that you are entering your date of birth in the format DD/MM/YYYY

Name: It sounds silly but more often than not, students aren’t able to apply because they have written their name incorrectly! The name will have to match our records exactly so any double-barreled surnames can be a bit tricky! If you’re having problems with this then please get in contact so that we can get this sorted.

Password: Your password will need to be 8 digits long and with at least one uppercase letter and at least one number

I haven’t received my validation code yet?
Due to the high volumes of traffic our Accommodation system, there can be a delay for your validation code being sent through. To find this email please check your Junk/SPAM folder. If after a couple of hours, this has still not been received, please contact us.

Changes to Webpages

We’ve made a number of changes to our webpages so please do take a look before you apply as information may have changed. Our most significant change is our new contract dates for our medical students. If you’re studying on BMBS you should take a look at our dedicated webpage for information on residences for you.

We’re looking forward to receiving your application!
