With a mix of modern and historic buildings, 1500 en-suite bedrooms, and 40 plus contemporary meeting and event spaces, our facilities on the beautiful Penryn Campus are available for residentials, holidays, conferences, business events and other group gatherings.

Our affordable accommodation, comprising large self-contained Glasney Flats and en-suite double and twin Glasney Rooms, are exclusively available during July and August when students have finished for the summer. 

Our bedrooms are set within a residential village which is nestled amongst tranquil historical gardens, an 18th century manor house and host of onsite campus facilities. 

The impressive Penryn Campus is conveniently located between the vibrant port of Falmouth and historic town of Penryn and is an ideal base to explore the spectacular seaside county of Cornwall.

In addition to our meeting rooms, there are plenty of activities in our state-of-the-art Sports Centre, or you could take a walk through our beautiful heritage gardens to ensure a healthy, memorable and productive time.

Your group will also benefit from our links with local tourist attractions and activity providers, receiving our Cornwall Plus Saver Card with discounted entry to attractions across the county.
