Use of the University Noticeboard

The noticeboard is provided to allow you to:

April 2009: A note from the Accommodation Office
Sub-letting a room in University Accommodation

If you live in a University residence, please note that under the terms of your accommodation contract, you are not permitted to sub-let your accommodation.

However, you are welcome to advertise for a replacement tenant to take over your accommodation contract. Please be aware that there are restrictions on who is eligible to take over your contract, and that arrangements to transfer your contract to another student must be made through the Accommodation Office.

For further information and advice, please contact the Accommodation Office.

You will not be able to access the University Noticeboard unless you have a valid University of Exeter username and password. If you are thinking of selling your old textbooks don't wait until after you have left the university.

I monitor and decide what is published to the University Noticeboard.

I do not edit your notice. Please ensure the notice is correct BEFORE you press the button marked "Click ONCE to submit your notice".

If you click the link marked "tell the noticeboard administrator", a message is sent to me. Nothing will appear on the noticeboard. I would like to hear from you if you wish to remove a messsage and I would like to know the number of the message that you want me to remove. Sadly, no further development work is taking place on the noticeboard so I cannot offer you new categories.

If the notice does not originate from a or e-mail address, it will nearly always not be published.

If you are selling something, please describe the goods accurately.

If you are buying something, make sure you know exactly what you are getting before you part with your money.

Do not promote well-known pyramid selling schemes, even if you don't know that they are pyramid selling schemes.

This is not an auction site. You should only sell things for face value or less.

Usual university disclaimers apply.

All faults and complaints should be addressed to the owner of the notice, not the university.

If your e-mail message did not reach me because you got your e-mail address wrong I cannot publish your notice, nor can I reply to you (because your e-mail address is wrong I never got your message).


If I receive a complaint about a notice and I uphold the complaint I remove the notice.

If the owner of the notice that has been removed complains, I consider the following:

If I get into the situation where the owner of the notice complains when I remove the notice AND the complainant complains when I retain the notice, I will shut down the noticeboard until the following term.

I will not go into lengthy discussions by e-mail or otherwise to explain why a notice has not been published. If this is not acceptable, you are welcome to find somewhere else to put your notice.
