Students oppose University expansion
Councillors were informed that by 2019/20, the target for student numbers across both the Penryn and Falmouth campuses is 8,628 which is an increase of 2,296 on the confirmed numbers for 2015/16. Under the universities' planning consent for the Penryn campus there is a cap of 5,000 students and as that has almost been reached, they will soon be applying to raise that to 7,500.
A sustainable solution to the housing crisis currently facing both students and locals in Falmouth is being sought as the town council seeks to forge closer links with university bosses and the students' union.
