Advertise with us
We currently have over 7,000 students on campus, studying with Falmouth University or one of the University of Exeter’s Cornwall Campuses. During their time at university, the majority of students will interact with FXU and participate in our activities in some way, whether it’s through joining a sports club or society, volunteering or fundraising within the local community, attending an event, or receiving advice on such matters as finance, housing and intermitting.
We communicate with students in a range of ways, including social media, blogging, via our website, e-newsletters, posters and good old fashioned face-to-face conversations. We have over 3,200 Twitter followers and over 7,700 Facebook likes (as of April 2016). If you’ve got a message for our students, or a service you want to share, we can ensure you reach the right audience.

Website advert on our homepage
£100 per week (20% discount for local businesses)
Our website has an average of 21,000 page views per week. We feature one advert a week exclusively (alongside other FXU content), which can link to your own specified URL. This must be sent to us as a 1156 (w) x 300 (h) pixel banner in JPEG format. Please contact us to find out if your required week is available.
£120 per entry (20% discount for local businesses)
We have a weekly e-newsletter which is distributed to all students during term-time. This is primarily used to inform students about FXU news and events but we also feature some paid-for adverts. If you want your advert to be included, just send us a 600 (w) x 200 (h) pixel banner advert – to be supplied as a JPEG – plus a link to more information. The newsletter is generally published on a Wednesday and we would need the content by 5pm Monday of that week. Please contact us to enquire about scheduling as we do not take advertising in one out of every four newsletters.
We feature up to three paid for ads a week, allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, and do not advertise the same advert on consecutive weeks. This can be a request to complete a survey, a general advert for your business or a call for student volunteers. Adverts can be paid for by card over the phone by calling 01326 255861 or we can send you an invoice for BACS payment.
£70 per week (20% discount for local businesses)
Our offices are incredibly busy with hundreds of students coming through our doors. Your business could appear on the digital screen in reception for all to see. Just send us your artwork as a 1920 (w) x 1080 (h) pixel JPEG and we can include this on our weekly slideshow. Maximum two adverts per week.
From £35 per post (20% discount for local businesses)
If you send us your intended tweet, we can schedule this for a specified time and date for just £35. If you want to schedule a series of tweets on five consecutive days, your fifth tweet is free. We can also post your message on our Facebook page for just £35 a post.
In the interest of transparency, we will add #ad to the end of any advertisement on Twitter. Please forward text exactly as you’d like it to appear with a link or image. We will start the Facebook post with ‘SPONSORED POST’.
In the interest of being consistent in our messages to students, we will only feature one advert on Twitter per day and one on Facebook per week.
Want to see your logo on our hoodies or have your banners at our events? All you have to do is sponsor a campaign or event. We have several through the year, including the elections, student reps, awards, grad ball and community games. Just get in touch to discuss your ideas and we can tailor a plan to your needs. Prices start at £100 to sponsor hoodies or £500 for our annual awards.
We are currently taking bookings for Freshers advertising. This includes a stall at our Freshers Fayre and entry to FestiFAL, plus adverts in our welcome magazine, logos on our welcome bags and adverts on our new wallplanners. Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
