Parking on Campus

Penryn Campus

We are building a new Sports Centre and Nursery at the Penryn Campus which will benefit students and staff from both the University of Exeter and Falmouth University. Construction is ongoing until September 2016. During this time parking, particularly long stay parking, will remain limited at Penryn Campus.

We are proactively working to increase the number of spaces on campus together with working on longer term solutions for the future, both on and off campus. We are also looking to find solutions for staff and students with caring and other responsibilities/duties which necessitates them arriving to campus later and thus potentially incurring the most issues with parking. 

We ask that students and staff use alternative methods of transport and avoid driving to the campus wherever possible. Our car parking charter has more information and advice.

Students and staff who live in the local area (Falmouth and Penryn) are able to use the U1, U2 and U3 buses for just £1 per journey. There are also regular trains running between Falmouth and Truro which cost from £2.30 return.

If you are a visitor or will only be using our car parks for occasional use we also operate a pay as you leave system. You can find out more information on our pay as you leave page.

Staff and students may be eligible for a parking permit which will allow regular use of the car parks for an annual fee. You can apply for a permit using our Online Application and Payment Portal. More information can be found on our Parking Permit page.

The Penryn Campus operates a sustainable Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system.
