Glasney Student Village


Glasney Student Village is located within the grounds of Penryn Campus and accommodates over 1800 students. 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, shop and Accommodation and Student Support Services. It is only a twenty minute bus ride from Falmouth town and a ten minute walk from Penryn town centre.

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

At Glasney Student Village we have two room types available. We also offer both self-catered and catered halls. Please click here to access our dedicated catered halls page

Our shared Studybed rooms give a cleverly designed study and living space for two students. They 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 function.

Accessible or adapted rooms

We have a number of rooms  that have been adapted to meet the requirements of students with disabilities, such as wheelchair accessibility or hearing impairment adaptations. If you would like details of what support or adaptations are available, please contact the Accessibility team to discuss your needs.

Glasney Lodge staffed 24/7
On-site security, security patrols and 24/7 access to Living Support Team
