Welcome to Falmouth & Exeter Students’ Union

We can’t wait to meet you and welcome you to Cornwall this September. Whether you’re a first year who’ll be heading to university for the very first time or are a returning student who didn’t quite get the chance to explore the Falmouth and Penryn campus' previously – we're here to show you what it’s all about!

Tickets for our in-person Welcome Fair on Penryn campus are now live! The Welcome Fair will run over two days Tuesday 14 September and Thursday 16 September. Grab your FREE tickets now!

What to expect from Welcome 2021!

This year we'll be bringing together a selection of activities for an on-campus experience during Welcome Week (13-17 September 2021) and beyond. Our in-person Welcome Fair will take place at 11am - 3pm on Tuesday 14 September and Thursday 16 September on our Penryn campus and is open to ALL students regardless of your year of study (a quiet hour will run from 10am-11am on both days). You can expect a smorgasbord of stalls showcasing student groups and societies, sports clubs, university services and of-course our SU stall offering a warm welcome into university life! Student and staff safety will be our top priority so we'll  be closely following university and government guidelines regarding Covid-19. We're in the final stages of what this will look like - so keep your eyes peeled for more Welcome Fair updates coming very soon!


And that's not it!

There'll be plenty more opportunities over the next few months, and throughout the rest of the academic year to join in with SU activities. We'll be adding a range of events to our 'What's On' calendar so don't forget to check in regularly, stay in the loop and get involved.

You are the Students’ Union, and everything we do – we do for you and with you! So be sure to find out more about what we do, say hello at the Welcome Fair and check out our online and in-person events throughout the Welcome period and beyond.
