Summer Signposting

As the weather warms up and the academic year comes to an end, your SU remains open but with a few changes to our opening times and service availability. Enjoy your summer!

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.

Opening times

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

Our opening times for June, July and August:

Penryn Campus: Monday - Friday 10am-4pm.


Closure dates

On the following dates, the SU will not be open:

Wednesday 17 July

Monday 26 August (Bank Holiday)

The Communities team are unavailable w/c 15th July.

You can get in touch with The SU team on 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.

Advice Resources

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.

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.

Welfare Signposting

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:
Financial Hardship
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!
