Opening our campuses to the community
Our annual Community Day is the perfect opportunity for staff, students and the local community to get together and enjoy our beautiful Falmouth Campus.
Coinciding with our graduate shows, you'll be able to discover our graduating talent while enjoying creative workshops, lawn games and live entertainment.
Falmouth Showcase & Games Expo
Our graduate shows (Falmouth Showcase) and the Games Expo are the highlight of our events calendar. At every corner of our campuses, you'll find an array of inspirational work produced by our graduating students.
From Advertising to Fine Art, Game Development to Interior Design, you'll discover just what our student community is made of. You'll also have the chance to purchase prints, books and artwork, and play our students' games.
These events take place in May every year.
Enjoy our gardens & eateries
Across our Falmouth and Penryn campuses, you'll find an array of tropical flora, Italian orchards and beautiful lawns to enjoy. Visitors are also welcome in our cafes and food outlets, so feel free to pop in for coffee or a bite to eat.Explore our campuses
