The Penryn Campus is shared and jointly managed by University of Exeter and Falmouth University in an arrangement that is unique within the UK. With over 6000 students studying here there’s a great community feel and access to state of the art facilities. The majority of University of Exeter students study at the Penryn campus with a limited number based at Truro. We have a wide range of accommodation on offer to suit all budgets.
