Student Homes in Penryn, Falmouth
Picturesque and populated with Falmouth’s student community, the town of Penryn packs charm, character and all the amenities you need to settle in to your new home.
One of Cornwall’s oldest market towns, Penryn was once a major player in the global granite trade. Today, the remaining buildings from this era are used for other purposes, but the quays once used for coal yards, quarried granite and warehouses still give the area its unique maritime industrial feel. What’s more, Penryn is still very much a centre for sailing, and many newer industries thrive in this Cornish harbour-side town.
In place of the granite merchants today are vibrant shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants that line the cobbled streets. Fancy a spot of locally sourced, fresh fish and chips? Stop into The Mariners on Lower Market Street. After a hard day’s study, get a round in at the Thirsty Scholar on West Street, a charming student pub with a chic feel serving reasonably priced food and drink. Naturally, life by the docks might whet your appetite for something a little more active. From surf schools and boat trips to cliff-top trails and cycle tracks, you’ll never be short on things to do.
Set in 100 acres of captivating countryside, Falmouth University’s Penryn Campus is a feat of architectural innovation. Here, students can take advantage of beautiful views over the Fal estuary and the impressive facilities offered at the campus. Regular bus links keep students living in the area well connected with the town centre and the primary campus in the heart of Falmouth.
