From sunset beach barbecues, to off-the-cuff creative happenings, from a weekday surf before studying, to a weekend spent plundering vintage fairs and craft boutiques, Falmouth and Penryn have a unique vibe perfect for the creative and curious.
With a DIY mentality and a sense of creative freedom pulsing through the sister towns' cultural undercurrent, you'll find a buzzing bar scene, a vibrant mix of live gigs and a glut of events and performances on offer. All this set within a welcoming ocean-flanked town, where every street you walk down and pub you stop in you'll see someone you know.
Sound like your cup of tea? we'll don't just take our word for it. Here's what Falmouth's students have to say about living here...
I lived with film students, photographers, fine artists, illustrators and creative writers. It was great.
It's not big. The setting's nice, being in the countryside, having a lot of green space. It's got everything you need.

The FXU is brilliant; there are so many different clubs to join. I’m a member of the Afro-Caribbean Society, the International Society, the Poetry Society and the Badminton Society. I like being sociable!
