New Students - Studying with Falmouth University

With halls in Falmouth, Penryn and Truro we offer a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets.

Accommodation 2017 - 2018

Our online accommodation applications will open in Spring 2017; we will update and confirm our accommodation information in early Spring 2017.  This will include key dates including when applications open and the deadline for our guarantee, the various accommodation options as well as the application procedure and when/how accommodation offers are made so that you are fully informed prior to our applications opening. 

In the meantime you are welcome to view our 2016-2017 information on this page. Please note that this is relevant to the 2016/2017 year and should be treated as a guide only. 

If you are still looking for accommodation for the 2016-2017 year please contact the Accommodation Office on 01326 253639.

Accommodation Package

The accommodation package varies by institution and from year to year so we would strongly advise that you read our information carefully and in full to ensure you are submitting your application correctly. If you are not sure which institution you are studying with please refer to your initial university offer e-mail for confirmation. Please note the information below is for the 2016-2017 year.

We have put together a full and detailed Accommodation Guide which gives information on the different halls available, the application and offer process, the accommodation deadline and guarantee information. Click on this image to view.     

Please click on the thumbnail to the right to see the Step-by-Step Application Guide which takes you carefully through the application process screen by screen. 

It is important that you read both of these documents in full before submitting your application. 

Accommodation Package at a Glance

  • Accommodation applications must be made via Room Service, our online application system. (please contact the Accommodation Office on 01326 253639 in the first instance for 2016-2017 availability)
  • In order to complete an application you must have accepted and confirmed Falmouth University as your first choice. Accommodation information will be emailed to you once you have accepted an offer of a place on your chosen course.
  • Whilst we try to allocate students their preferred choice of accommodation we cannot guarantee that we will be able to offer all students their first choice and therefore recommend that all available options are put in an order of priority. The offer process is dependent on the residence that you are offered. Detailed information on this can be found in the Accommodation Guide above.
