Glasney Student Village


Glasney Student Village is located within the grounds of Penryn Campus and accommodates over 1600 students from both Falmouth University and the University of Exeter. 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 and shop. It is only a 20 minute bus ride from Falmouth town and a 15 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 accommodation. Please click here to access our dedicated catered halls page. 


Numbers of catered shared Studybed en-suite rooms are limited, so you will not see them as an option on the application. If you would like to apply for this room type please add it to the Notes section of your application with a ranking.

Shared rooms

Our shared Studybed rooms provide a cleverly designed study and living space for two students. Studybeds 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. Studybed rooms are used for both single and shared occupancy.

All students who accept an offer of a shared room will automatically be added to a waiting list for a single occupancy room. While there is the possibility of single rooms becoming available over the summer, this cannot be guaranteed. Based on previous years, we do expect to have offered all students on the waiting list a single occupancy room before Christmas.

Accessible or adapted rooms

We have a number of rooms that can be adapted for students with additional requirements.  They include the same facilities but may have, for example, grab rails or en-suite wet room. If you have specific requirements for your accommodation please make contact with us as soon as possible so we can discuss your requirements further. Depending on demand, you may be allocated an accessible room without specifically requiring one.

Additional Facilities for Glasney Student Village include:
Glasney Lodge staffed 24/7
On-site security 
External bicycle storage
Laundry facilities
