I'm going to take a course at the University of Exeter this spring and I need accomodation. Problem is that I'm not officially registered at the university (I'm let in as a favour by the professor), and so I can't use the universitys dorms.

Anyone got any good Idea on how to find accomodation in exeter for 4-5 months? (from february)

no not really, I should contact them.. but I'm not officially registered at the university so I suppose there are limits to how much they can help me.


Don't wanna bug the professor too much, he's been kind enough to let me follow the course without registering - don't want to exhaust his kindness.

I'm going to take a course in sociology/philosophy called "mind and world" at SHiPSS.

i think you should contact your proffesor, he may have an idea.

if you cant go via the university, then i guess youll have to look for a tempory flat in a house in the city

I'll come a cpl of weeks early to see if I can find something.

I see that the prices is about 55£ a week for a room in a dorm. Is that reasonable, or should I expect to pay more on the private market?

£55 without food, i pay closer to 100 with food

i think 55 is a usual figure, but add to that food and bills etc

i pay £100 a week here with food.

there are loads of empty beds in halls- especially in st lukes, i would be suppriesed if you could not come to some arrangment with the university.

also, a lot of people who live in private accomodation have spare rooms, these are advertised on the uni online notice board.

if you go to the uni web site- its there somewhere.

i love exeter, its big enough to keep finding new places but small enought to feel like you know everyone- well, i nearly do.

its really friendly and nice.

its quite expensive but if you budget for that you'r fine.
