Student Accommodation

Colourful blocks of student accommodation on Penryn Campus

Your student home

Feeling at home is just as important as your degree. So, from offering modern, well-equipped student accommodation designed to fit a range of tastes and budgets, to giving you the support you need to find private sector housing, and offering you the chance to speak to current students, we’ll help make your transition to student living as seamless as possible.

Our student accommodation is organised by FXPlus - part of Falmouth University and our partners, the University of Exeter. It's spread across the Penryn campus and sites in Falmouth and Penryn towns; all connected by regular bus and train services. You can find out what's available and the number of spaces on the accommodation website.

If you’re a first-year undergraduate student, you’ll have a guaranteed place in our accommodation, as long as you get your application in on time.
