University of Exeter Arrivals

For more information, view our accommodation policies.

Accommodation induction

If you’re going to live in Glasney Student Village you will need to complete the online induction before moving in. The induction includes important information about your residence, health and safety during your stay and the support services available to you. It is compulsory and must be completed before you can pick up your keys.

A link to the induction will be sent out during August to everyone who has accepted their offer of accommodation. Once you have completed the induction you will be asked to book an arrival date and time slot. You must book a date and time to arrive at your residence in advance; numbers are limited per time slot so we recommend you complete your induction and book your arrival as soon as you receive the email.

Free parking will be available during the arrival dates and times. Normal parking charges will apply outside of these dates. You can find out more about how these work, including hourly charges, on our parking page.

Once you have checked in and collected your keys you will be given an unload permit which will allow you to park your car at a designated area within the Glasney Student Village. You will have a maximum of 2 hours to unload the car, after which it will need to be moved back to the main car park. If you have two cars with you to unload you will only be permitted to take one car down at a time.

You will only be able to take your car into Glasney Student Village once for unloading. If you need to visit the shops to get groceries we advise that you do this before arrival or park at the main car park and walk your shopping down.

Allowances are made for Blue Badge holders.
