Where will I live?


Most first-year students choose to live in halls and then move out in to Falmouth or Penryn for their second and third years. Living in Falmouth is often a highlight- there are not many Universities where you can have a bedroom with such envious sea views. Falmouth is around 15-20 minutes by bus from campus and there are regular shuttle buses to campus from the town. 

The majority of Halls of residence are within walking distance of or based on Penryn Campus. Also we have opened up a number of options usually only available to Falmouth University students, in both Falmouth and Truro.

Applying for accommodation

Once you have accepted your offer from the University as your first choice, it is important to submit your application for accommodation. To find out how to apply, please visit our accommodation webpages or the Falmouth Exeter Plus accommodation site.

There are many choices for accommodation, so whether you choose to live in a shared house in the private sector, or university owned, managed or approved accommodation – you can find all the information on the various options on the Cornwall accommodation website. All university owned, managed or approved accommodation is self-catered.
