Student life in Truro FAQs

Universities in and around Truro

Truro is a small city, the only city in Cornwall, with a population of around 22,000 people.

It’s an old city, having been populated since time immemorial. It wasn’t until a Norman castle was constructed in the 12th century that Truro came to prominence. It was then that local administration was brought to the town and it grew steadily from there.

Aside from Royal Cornwall Hospital, Truro also has Truro Penwith College and Cornwall College.

The closest universities are Falmouth University to the southwest and The University of Plymouth to the northeast. Both have links to the Royal Cornwall Hospital site and send medical students there each year.

What types of rooms do your Truro student halls have?

Treliske halls have double en-suite rooms and double standard rooms. Both room types offer spacious student accommodation.

It’s your own space, one having a bathroom and one having shared facilities.

Accommodation also has shared living spaces where you can socialise with fellow students, make new friends and hang out.

How do I apply for Truro student accommodation?

Sanctuary Students works with the University of Plymouth to manage the accommodation. You’ll need to complete an enquiry form in order to get a place.

Once a room has been allocated, we can work with you to manage everything else!

Can I book Truro student halls with my friends?

You can stay with your friends in Truro student halls. You’ll need to appoint a single point of contact to handle the booking. All party members will also need to mention that person’s name in their form too.

We’ll then do our best to secure you some student accommodation as a group, but we can’t guarantee anything. Student accommodation on the Treliske Hospital site is exceptionally popular with students and key workers, so you’ll have to book early and confirm fast if you want to stay with friends!

What’s included in the rent?

Everything’s included in the rent in your Truro student flats. Rents include all bills, water, heating, electricity etc., broadband and IPTV, security and CCTV, contents insurance, cleaning of social areas and building maintenance.

We want you to be able to concentrate on your studies and enjoy life in Truro, so we take care of everything so you don’t have to.

When should I book accommodation at the Treliske Hospital site?

You need to book your Treliske Hospital site accommodation as soon as you have your placement confirmed. As you can imagine, there are lots of students and key workers who want to live here, so competition is fierce.

As soon as you know you’ll be placed at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro, you need to book somewhere to stay, as hundreds of other students will be doing the same thing!
