Glasney Student Village

Glasney Aerial

Glasney Student Village is located within the grounds of Penryn Campus and accommodates over 1500 students from both Falmouth University and the University of Exeter. The 90-acre site has spectacular views over Falmouth and Penryn, the sea and the surrounding countryside. The on-campus facilities include a gym, refectory, cafes and a bar, a live events venue and shop. It is only a 20 minute bus ride from Falmouth town and a 15 minute walk from Penryn town centre.

Students share a flat with six to nine others from Falmouth University and the University of Exeter with each flat offering a fully equipped kitchen/living area.

At Glasney we offer both self-catered and catered halls. Please click here to access our dedicated catered halls page.

Shared Rooms

Our shared studybed rooms provide a cleverly designed study and living space for two students. Studybeds rotate between two functions, acting alternatively as a single bed and a large desk area. The innovative design means there is no need to clear the desk before rotating to the bed.

Accessibility/Adapted Rooms

We have a number of rooms that can be adapted for students with additional requirements.  They include the same facilities but may have, for example, grab rails or en-suite wet room. If you have specific requirements for your accommodation please make contact with us as soon as possible so we can discuss your requirements further. Depending on demand, you may be allocated an accessible room without specifically requiring one.
