Standing proud above Penryn town and just a short hop away from the vibrant community of Falmouth, Penryn Campus’s architectural innovation, outstanding facilities and state-of- the-art technology make it the ideal place to ignite your academic fire.

Playing home to courses covering a spectrum of disciplines, from design and media to performance and writing, Penryn Campus sees students and staff gather to think, work, create and share – a collaborative melting pot of ideas and opportunities which are sure to challenge and inspire.

Buses depart regularly from Falmouth town centre, the train takes five minutes from Falmouth and it’s 15 minutes by train from Truro to Penryn station, which is a 20-minute walk from the campus.

The Stannary is one of the county’s largest live events venues, welcoming a diverse range of musicians, DJs and pulsating club nights all through the year.
