Subsidised sports centre membership
Alumni living locally are eligible for discounted membership fees at the Sports Centre on our Penryn Campus. Alumni pay staff rates, which represent a 20% saving compared to external membership prices.
The Sports Centre features a state-of-the-art fitness suite including the latest Vibrogym technology, and exercise studio and multi-use games area. To view exercise class timetables and read more about the Sports Centre's facilities, please visit our Sports Centre page.
Benefit from free reference access to the libraries on both campuses. Falmouth Campus library specialises in art and design, and Penryn Campus library in media, design and related subjects.
Both libraries have excellent print collections available for alumni to browse.
You can also register with the library to become an alumni borrower for a one-time fee of £35. This entitles you to borrow up to ten books at a time. Unfortunately academic licenses do not permit access to online library resources or the video/DVD collection.
