On the Accommodation Application page, they have this under 'Insurance/Clearing Applicants':
If you have Exeter as your insurance or clearing choice, or you have received a place through adjustment, you can apply when your University offer is confirmed.
Please note, it can take up to 2 days for a firmly accepted offer to be transferred from Admissions to our accommodation system. This means you won’t be able to activate an accommodation account immediately.
If your original firm course offer is declined but you then firm another offer through clearing, you must contact the Accommodation Office to get your accommodation application reinstated as it will have been withdrawn after the initial decline.

So you won't be covered under the accommodation guarantee that Exeter offers their Firm applicants. You can still apply for accommodation, but it's covered under a first-come first-served basis, and you can't pick preference for specific halls, only specific types of accommodation (such as Catered vs. Self-Catered, Contract Length etc.), and if you don't get any university managed accommodation you'd have to look into private accommodation in the city.
Hope this helps and if you have any questions feel free to ask!

Would you recommend to book private accommodation anyway just in case?
