Arrivals

Once you have accepted your accommodation offer you’ll be thinking about moving in and on this page you’ll find information about the arrivals process.

Each of our residences will have different arrival days and times available. We will be posting more detailed information on this page soon.

Accommodation Induction

Students living at Glasney Student Village, Packsaddle Hill and Tuke House will need to complete the online induction before moving in. The induction includes important information about your residence, health and safety during your stay and the support services available to you. It is compulsory and must be completed before you can pick up your keys.

A link to the induction will be sent out at the end of August to students who have accepted their offer of accommodation. Once you have completed the induction you will be asked to book an arrival date and time slot. You must book a date and time to arrive at your residence in advance; numbers are limited per time slot so please ensure you complete your induction and book your arrival as soon as you receive the email. If you find the time slot you wish to book is full, please choose the next available option.

Arriving from Overseas

For students travelling from outside of the UK we offer Collection Services from two UK locations and online bookings are open now. Please click here for further information and to book a place. 

Arriving Early or Late

Unfortunately we are unable to facilitate any arrivals earlier than the dates offered. Students are able to arrive later than the scheduled dates however the contract start date will still apply and students will be charged from the date stated on their formal contract. Please refer to the instructions on the induction e-mail for how to let the Accommodation Office know if you are expecting to arrive outside of the arrival weekend. We can then ensure your keys are available for you to collect.

If you are not living at Glasney Student Village, Packsaddle Hill or Tuke House, please contact the management team for the residence you are moving onto for further guidance.

Parking

Glasney Student Village

Free parking will be available during the arrival dates and times. Normal parking charges will apply outside of these dates in line with our pay as you leave system. You can find out more about how this works, including hourly charges, on our parking page.

Once you have checked in and collected your keys you will be given an unload permit which will allow you to park your car at a designated area within the Glasney Student Village. You will have a maximum of 2 hours to unload the car, after which it will need to be moved back to the main car park. If you have two cars with you to unload you will only be permitted to take one car down at a time.

You will only be able to take your car into Glasney Student Village once for unloading. If you need to visit the shops to get groceries we advise that you do this before arrival or park at the main car park and walk your shopping down.

Allowances are made for Blue Badge holders.

Off-Site Halls of Residence

Parking at the majority of the offsite halls will be in pay and display car parks.

At Packsaddle Hill there is no parking so after belongings have been dropped off cars will need to be parked on campus.

Deliveries

We advise booking supermarket deliveries outside of the arrival times. During the arrivals weekend delivery vans will not be permitted entry to the residences.

Guests

We are unable to allow any guests in residences for the first two weeks. If parents, relatives or friends are accompanying you they will need to book accommodation elsewhere. Falmouth and Penryn has lots of hotels, guest houses, B&Bs and hostels and many advertise via VisitFalmouth.com

What To Bring

When packing for your move in we would advise to travel light, especially if you are sharing a room!

Items vary in each residence. The information on each residence page has details of what is provided and what you need to bring with you. We would suggest that you wait until you arrive to buy general cleaning equipment or shared kitchen items; you can then share the cost with your fellow residents and you won’t end up with several sets of saucepans!

Some residences also have different bed sizes. Check the Halls of Residence pages and your accommodation offer for information on the bed type in your room. 

Food and Bedding Packs

You can order starter packs such as bedding and kitchen equipment from UniKitOut, reducing the amount of items you need to bring with you. The items will be sent to your residence in time for your arrival.  Please see below instructions and click here to place your order.

Step 1: Choose your kit

Step 2: Fill in your details, including name and student ID

Step 3: Add your delivery address. You will need to select ‘Falmouth-Exeter Student’. ‘Glasney Lodge’ is the default delivery address, but you can type in a different address if you live off campus.

Step 4: Choose a delivery date

Step 5: Use discount code FX10 which gives Falmouth and Exeter students 10% off all orders on UniKitOut.

You will also be able to order food and toiletry packs from the Penryn Campus shop, more information on how to do this will be available shortly.

What Not to Bring

Please read your contract, residence handbook for rules and regulations on prohibited items. Prohibited items may be confiscated and returned to you at the end of your accommodation agreement.
