Cornwall College Camborne
Our Camborne campus has served as a vocational training hub for nearly a century. The iconic Tamar tower and the ‘big top’ that covers our construction and engineering provision, are landmarks known throughout the area. This legacy, combined with an exciting modernisation programme, has made Cornwall College Camborne the home of cutting edge facilities, dynamic learning experiences and fantastic student spaces. Open and modern learning areas, electric vehicle training labs, esports gaming facilities, chill out areas, an award-winning restaurant and plenty more besides, makes this the perfect place to have your #careercollege experience.

Located in the large Trelawney building in the centre of the campus, all students have access to a dedicated shop and coffee bar. Here students can find essential stationery supplies, art equipment, food and drinks, gifts, greeting cards, stamps and a wide selection of gadgets including USB sticks and earphones. The shop accepts card payments (minimum £3 spend).
The Cornwall College Student Union (CCSU) exists to represent your voice and views at every level in the College and to make sure you have a fantastic time while you are a student studying with us.
Every campus has a team of elected students who work hard all year round on your behalf, from organising parties, to running campaigns and arranging volunteering opportunities including helping young people in Kenya.
You can get involved in a huge range of activities and have the power to determine what happens on campus. We go on college trips that students pick to help enhance your student experience and we raise money for charities.
As a Cornwall College student, you are automatically a member of the Student Union, giving you access to our dedicated student areas where you can meet, chat and relax with friends.
And if you really want a challenge, you can get even more involved and have your voice heard by running for a vice chair and student chair position, as well as helping to arrange our annual Student Star Awards.
Remember, ITS YOUR UNION, WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOICE!
