The Exchange

The Exchange is a new £10M learning, teaching and research hub at the heart of the Penryn Campus that is shared by the University of Exeter (UoE) and Falmouth University (Falmouth).

With an innovative layout that encourages the flow of ideas, The Exchange provides students and staff from Penryn and Falmouth with the opportunity to interact, collaborate, study and socialise in a vibrant environment that befits a world-class university campus.

The Exchange transforms the student and staff experience with its access to the full spectrum of academic and support services in one welcoming space, and its range of flexible facilities and learning environments.

Students and staff can access the building 24/7 as well as many of the services within it.

In addition, The Exchange has been designed to achieve an Excellent rating from BREEAM, the leading and most widely used environmental assessment method for buildings.
