Accommodation in Cornwall

Student accommodation in Cornwall

Starting university is an exciting time. Learning about life in our Cornwall residences is a great place to begin finding out about the student experience here.

Our University accommodation gives you the opportunity to meet people from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures who are on a variety of degree programmes, especially in Penryn where you will be sharing accommodation with Falmouth University students.

This arrangement is unique within the UK and many parts of the campus – including our halls of residence, leisure facilities, and some of our teaching and learning spaces – are shared with Falmouth students. 

Penryn Campus offers a compact, safe, and secure environment with easy access to sports facilities, a canteen (called The Stannary), a bar, campus shop, cafes, study spaces and our beautiful grounds.

There are lots of great options for relaxing, socialising and study, plus, we are only a bus or train ride away from Cornwall’s beaches, countryside and heritage. 

Penryn Campus is a 20-minute bus ride from Falmouth town centre and a 15-minute walk from the middle of Penryn. The nearest supermarket is a 15-minute walk away.  

This site provides Undergraduate and International Postgraduate students with information on what accommodation is available for those studying on the Cornwall campus.

Postgraduate students based in the UK should visit our private accommodation page, where we can help you find housemates or rooms in the private sector.
