We hope you all have a well-deserved break after a busy term! If you’re leaving Exeter, safe travels and we can’t wait to welcome you back in 2024. If you’re going to be staying in Exeter, read on to find out what’s on and when the Guild and University will be open.

Guild Reception will be closed from Friday 15 December and open again on Monday 8 January 2024.

Your Students’ Guild will be closed from Wednesday 20 December, and open again on Tuesday 2 January 2024.

More information about the facilities, services and events available during the Winter Break can be found here. This includes warm spaces open on campuses.

Please note, the heating system in Devonshire House will be running in energy saving mode from 23 December - 1 January, and therefore will not be a warm study space during this time.

If you’d like to join the Christmas lunch on campus on 25 December, you can book tickets until 18 December.

Join us for our Winter Party on 13 December, and if you are staying in Exeter, you can also meet other students who will be here too.
