Welcome Freshers of Falmouth University & the University of Exeter in Cornwall

We are your students' union and we can't wait to meet you all over the Freshers period where we've got plenty of amazing events and activities planned to introduce you to your new home.

Falmouth and Exeter Students Union (FXU) is the students' union for both Falmouth University and the University of Exeter in Cornwall and we are here to represent your student voice and enhance your student experience from freshers to graduation...and beyond!

There is never a dull moment when you're a student in Cornwall as there is always something to do. FXU has over 130 sports clubs and societies, lots of volunteering opportunities, and green living activities that you can get involved with.  There's always something happening either on or off campus and the best part is, during Freshers, you get to try lots of extra-curricular activities for free!

Stay up to date with the latest Freshers information and get updates over the next few months via our official FXU Freshers 2018 Facebook Page and don't forget to follow us on Twitter, Instagram and our main Facebook page.
