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:

  • En-suite (single occupancy room with a double bed or Studybed). A number of en-suite rooms are within Catered Halls.
  • Shared Studybed en-suite (shared occupancy room with studybed)

We offer a number of shared occupancy rooms. The shared occupancy Studybed rooms (max. 2 per flat) are en-suite and fully furnished.

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.
