Library Facilities

Library interior with 'group study' written on large pillar and students reading

There are libraries on both our Falmouth Campus and Penryn Campus. Offering extensive collections, our two libraries provide a wealth of digital resources, magazines, specialist material and journals. You'll find 30,000+ titles on DVD, Blu-Ray or to stream; image banks; news archives; business and creative databases; e-books and e-journals, all freely available.

Our Penryn library is open 24/7 throughout the term, with a supportive team of subject librarians, technicians and archivists. Accessible through The Exchange, you'll benefit from bookable solo study spaces to maintain social distancing and have access to wifi throughout.
