Whether you’re exploring Cornwall’s beaches, completing assignments or looking forward to the next academic year, the SU is open to students over the summer.
You can find help with organising student groups and activities, finding out who your course rep is, getting advice on academic issues, consumer rights, finances and accommodation with your SU team.
You are welcome to pop into our SU spaces during our opening hours to chill out with your presidents, ask any questions and find out what’s happening. If our spaces aren’t open, you’ll find the team available online, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our opening times for June, July and August:
Penryn Campus: Monday - Friday 10am-4pm from 19th June until 1st July 2023
Falmouth Campus: Closed from now until start of term
Please note that The SU will be working online from 1 July 2023 while our office space is updated until further notice.
On the following dates, the SU will not be open:
Wednesday 12 July
Monday 23 August (Bank Holiday)
The Advice service are unavailable w/c 21st August
The Engagement team are unavailable from 12 - 28th July.
You can get in touch with The SU team on email@example.com over the summer, but due to reduced opening hours and the team taking a well-earned break, it might take longer than usual for us to reply. Thank you!
Alternatively, visit our meet the team page to see the specific contact details for the team you’re looking for.
As a member of the SU, you have access to a free, impartial advice service. You can get help and guidance with finance, accommodations, academic issues and consumer rights.
If you don’t have the time to book an appointment or aren’t sure where to start, our advice resources are an amazing collection of documents and guidance that will help you.

Finance & Budgeting
Mental Health Resources
You might find that time away from your academic routine can be difficult, especially if your life at university is very different to your life at home.
First of all, if you are struggling to maintain your usual day-to-day activity, speak to your GP as soon as possible.
If you are looking for ways to help yourself, our mental health resources offer lots of options to try out. Some options are only available to you as a student (including during your breaks!) whereas others are more general.
Alongside mental health, you need to take care of your general welfare and might want to help others too. Our Welfare pages signpost you to some of the services and people who can help you with a range of questions or issues, including:
Sexual Health and Consent
Faith and Liberation
Hate crime reporting
Problems in the Community
Drugs and Alcohol
Finally, we hope you have an enjoyable summer and hope to see you soon!
