A 15 per cent discount is being offered to local people booking accommodation on the Penryn campus during the peak season period from 13 July until the end of August.

Operated by Cornwall Plus, Glasney Rooms and Glasney Flats are occupied by students throughout the rest of the year. When they leave in early July, the properties are made ready for guests wanting somewhere affordable to stay near Falmouth during the height of the summer. All profits made from the enterprise are re-invested back into the campus which is jointly managed by Falmouth and Exeter universities.

“As we all know, tourism is very important to the local economy and the busiest time of year is the summer school holidays,” said Marketing and Sales Development Manager Lisa Ogden. “The accommodation we offer is aparthotel style and, from just £63 per night, comparatively low cost.

“Anyone with friends and relatives coming to visit might like to consider our rooms and flats as an option if they have limited space in their own homes or they’re holding a wedding or party event. Our self-contained flats sleep two to fourteen people and benefit from a fully equipped kitchen. There’s also an on-site shop, café, sports centre and parking and the historic gardens around the original house are simply beautiful.”
