Currently called Tremough Campus (IN RED), the represented universities occupying want to rename it University Campus Penryn. This means altering addresses for the Tremough Innovation Centre (IN GREEN) the student accommodation addresses at GLASNEY PARC (IN BLACK) and GLASNEY VIEW (IN BLUE). In addition there have been some additional accommodation addresses that need to be registered at GLASNEY VIEW and the Innovation Centre.

Penryn Campus (formerly Tremough Campus, Cornwall Campus and similar names) is a university campus in Penryn, Cornwall, England, UK. The campus is occupied by two university institutions: Falmouth University and the University of Exeter, with the shared buildings, facilities and services provided by Falmouth Exeter Plus.

Located on a site bought in 1998, the campus was developed via the Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC) scheme with finance from the EU and the UK Government and was opened in 2004.

The 70-acre (28 ha) site was a convent school for the local community which was bought in 1998 by Falmouth College of Arts, as it was then known. The Universities of Exeter and Plymouth both expressed an interest in the project. The University of Plymouth later withdrew, leaving University of Exeter in partnership with Falmouth University: the site is held on a 125-year lease. The campus was developed as part of the Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC) initiative and was officially opened in 2004. The bulk of the investment in the campus derived from European Union Objective One funding, matched by UK Government funding provided through the South West Regional Development Agency (SWRDA).

In 2011 as part of Phase II of developments on Tremough Campus, the name of the campus was changed to “University Campus Tremough”. In 2012 Tremough Campus Services, the charity formed by Falmouth University and the University of Exeter to manage university activities in the Falmouth and Penryn area, changed its name to Falmouth Exeter Plus. The shared campus was officially opened for the 2004/5 academic year as “CUC Tremough Campus.”

In 2013, with the continued growth of the University of Exeter and the recent inauguration of Falmouth University, further discussions were undertaken in how the now three university campuses in Cornwall (Treliske in Truro, Tremough in Penryn and Woodlane in Falmouth) would be represented. On 18 July 2013, University Campus Tremough changed its name to “Penryn Campus” in line with the already adopted Truro and Falmouth campuses.

As of 2016, around 4,000 students study at the campus
