The Students’ Guild understands that due to delays in construction, the private sector accommodation provider ‘The Depot’ will not be able to provide accommodation for students starting in September. As a result; students will need to secure alternative accommodation for 2019/20.
The Depot is a separate company to the University and we understand that staff at The Depot have communicated to students effected regarding accommodation options and compensation. If you have a contract with The Depot for accommodation for 2019/20 and have yet to receive correspondence, please ensure that The Depot have your correct contact details and you have checked your emails (including junk mail folders) thoroughly.
The Students’ Guild has been informed that the company have identified a range of student accommodation options and are holding them for a short period. Please email the accommodation team at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information regarding alternative accommodation as soon as possible as room reallocation will be on a first come, first served basis.
If the alternative accommodation options proposed by The Depot are not suitable to you then there are several ways of finding accommodation.
The University is affiliated with the Student Pad website that provides a means for landlords and students to advertise accommodation https://www.exeterstudentpad.co.uk/MessageBoard
The University also has details of other privately run purpose-built halls of residence in the city and these may have availability for 2019/20.
There are also several websites run by private providers that may have accommodation available.
