Looking after your health while at university is very important. Find out how to register with a local doctor, what do to in an emergency and how you can manage your mental health and wellbeing, below. 

How to see a doctor

Contact one of the local surgeries listed below to register with a GP. The Penryn Campus surgery is operated by Penryn Surgery, so you need to register with them if you wish to attend appointments on campus. Try to register as early as possible, so your doctor has time to access your full history.


Penryn Surgery

Penryn Surgery offers consultations daily during term time on Penryn Campus.

To register, visit their website, click the ‘university students’ tile and complete the new patient registration form and student health questionnaire online. You’ll need your NHS number and university accommodation address.

If you can’t get online, you can find paper forms at the Compass Desk on Penryn campus.
