Campus life at Falmouth university is awesome. You can leave your door open and people you can make friends with are certain to come in to say hi! Everything on campus is a short walk and you can head up to the Stannery on certain days of the week and get drinks at a cheaper rate! If that's not lively enough for you, you can always bus out to Falmouth's town center where you can find some cheap good quality food and plenty of bars, pubs and clubs. Plus there's lots to during the day that doesn't involve alcohol!

    It’s perfect for fuelling creativity because whenever you’re feeling un-inspired you can pop to the beach. They’re obviously lacking funding in some places (student welfare and the Falmouth campus library) but otherwise I haven’t had any issues.
