Opening arrangements for Summer 2014
These are the details for changes to opening times of campus services and facilities; if the one you're looking for is not listed below, its opening hours will be unchanged during the holiday.
From Saturday 21 June to Sunday 31 August, The Compass desk will be closed but will answer pre-arrival enquiries, as well as queries from current students and staff, by email. You can also use The Compass' Facebook page.
To book rooms in The Compass over the summer you can email (with the exception of Room 3, an unbookable Crisis Room which is used by student support services and the living support team).
The Compass reopens at 9am on Monday 1 September.
From the new academic year, glass-fronted Room 2 in The Compass will be where FXU provide one-to-one and group support to students.

Student Support Services
The Student Support Services office in Kathmor at the Falmouth Campus will be closed from Monday 30 June until Sunday 7 September. It will reopen at 9am on Monday 8 September.
There will be some reduction in the availability of appointments but, because demand is so much reduced over the summer, you should not have to wait long for an appointment. The Penryn Campus office in the Annex will remain open for drop-in callers as well as appointments with counsellors, accessibility advisors, living support and wellbeing staff throughout the summer. All services will be available from the Penryn Campus office and all telephone calls will be transferred there.
