    Hi! I was just wondering if anyone was planning on taking there car for first year ans if anyone knows if its even possible to park anywhere?

    I live about 5 hours away from Falmouth and It'd be soooo much easier for me to get home if my parents didnt have to drive to come get me and then take me back! The train back to my town takes 8 hours from falmouth

    Anyway is anyone else thinking of taking a car and does anyone know about parking?

    Don't, you'd barely use it and it would cost a lot on top of your accomodation and living costs. So i generally wouldnt tbh

    And i dont think you'd even have parking space with your halls?

    Ignore the person saying don't. Most definitely bring a car if you have one, but just don't park at the uni as it is expensive.
    Cornwall is gorgeous, and you need a car to see a lot of the best sights. (Since public transport is slow as ****).
    That and you will feel trapped in Falmouth without a car.

    The parking is a real pain for first year and vastly overpriced. I'd suggest trying without for a term and see how it goes.

    Parking is a huge hastle for sure. There's spots in Penryn and Fal that are free though.
