The Clock Tower Boarding Accommodation

We are extremely proud of our accommodation provision which enables our Exeter Chiefs Rugby Academy students the opportunity to focus both on their academic studies and their training schedules. In addition to the support from the college tutor’s students will receive 24 hour care by our dedicated accommodation team who will liaise both with tutors and parents, be an advocate, listen, guide, encourage and nurture to facilitate a positive accommodation experience.

Students live together, from Sunday night to Friday morning, in supervised accommodation. Students will have access to shared or individual rooms, bathrooms, communal areas, and kitchen space.

Evening meals will be provided by the college Monday-Thursday and on Sundays a takeaway style meal or ingredients for cooking will be provided for the students.

The Accommodation Officers will also work with the students to plan meals and buy the ingredients for breakfast. Students, with supervision from the Officers will prepare breakfast each morning before college. We believe these experiences enhance the students time in the accommodation and encourage independent living skills and prepare students for wider life.
