Welcome Week marks the beginning of your university experience. From 13 - 28 September we'll help you get settled in through Welcome Weekend and a packed programme of Freshers' events organised by your Students' Union.
13 – 14 September
Where to go
The Falmouth University Registration Desk will be at the Sports Centre on the Penryn Campus throughout Welcome Weekend. Here, you can pick up your Student Card and the keys to your halls of residence.
If you're arriving after the weekend, you can collect your ID card from the Student Administration Office at either Penryn or Falmouth Campus, depending on your location of study. If you’re living in university accommodation, pick up your room key from Glasney Lodge on Penryn Campus.
What to do
After you've done all the necessary paperwork, you can find out a bit more about what's happening on campus. Our Student Services, Student Records and Finance teams will be on hand to provide help and advice on all aspects of student life, including registering with a local doctor. Your Student Mentors will also be around to meet you, make you feel welcome and answer any burning questions you may have.
From football to quidditch, surfing to knitting, kung-fu to creative writing, your Students' Union will be there to tell you about the huge variety of clubs and societies you can get involved with at Falmouth. And if you've already purchased your Freshers' Week wrist band, you can collect it here.
Freshers' Fortnight: 14 - 28 September
