Carrick View is for sure the best located student accommodation for the university; not only is it is situated within short walking distance to Falmouth town centre (to suit all your shopping needs), Gylly beach, and sports grounds (Dracaena/Rugby/Bowls), but the building itself is modern and well designed. Yes the landscaping outside still needs some attention and yes perhaps we could do with a few more washers/dryers but that shouldn't detract from the high quality of living here. Also, the staff and security here are legends (Richard and John), who'd love to have a chat on your way past the office. // A large concern of mine when moving in was the whether the internet connection would be strong enough to support my videography and editing needs, and bar a small hiccup in the first week when they were installing fibre, I have had no problems since; the standard package sports an average of 240Mbps download and 190Mbps upload which is just ludicrous for student accommodation.
Since moving in in September I have loved Carrick View. The staff are so friendly and are always up for a chat. All the rooms are so nice and modern, and some of them really do come with amazing views of Falmouth.
I've been living at Carrick View since September and have felt welcomed, supported, and at home the entire time! My room has really been thought out from a student perspective, which makes studying and living here easy and stress free. It's lovely and quiet where I am in the building, and all the staff are super friendly as well.
It's really nice living here at Carrick. Easy access to town, buses, train, and the surgery and hospital are next door! Nicely spaced areas of rooms, kitchen and hallways. Im currently a 2nd year, as last year I lived on the uni campus during covid which I found difficult meeting new people, but I feel like i've easily been able to fit in and make friends this year. Richard, John and the security guards are all lovely, and Luna the doggo is a huge plus to Carrick!!!
Great staff (big up Richard), lovely security guards, nice building and rooms 9/10
Carrick has been a great accommodation for me to stay in for my first year at uni, despite being at the penryn campus there is still quick and easy buses to get you to and from. I love being only 10 minutes from the town and 15 minutes from the beach. Its a great place and everyone is friendly, I would reccomend this place to anyone.
Carrick is a lovely place to stay, amazing value for money and the rooms are big and nice quality, the kitchen is also huge in some of the flats. The staff here are always friendly and solve issues promptly and are always nice to speak to. It's been annoying that the staff dont ask for consent to enter you're room other than verbal consent on the spot so will often mistake you not answering your door as being not in and enter while you are sleeping by mistake. The only issues other than that I had was the Wi-Fi didn't work at the best of times in the beginning and the site has still been in construction for the entirety of my stay, but this should be resolved by the time next years tenants arrive hopefully.
Moving into Carrick has been exciting and new, the staff are lovely and welcoming. University is a new experience for everyone and living at Carrick View has made the different experiences much more easier and simpler to filter in with the uni life.
