University of Exeter, Cornwall Campus (UECC) is a campus of the University of Exeter at Tremough, in Penryn, Cornwall. Since 2004 it has housed all the University's operations in Cornwall, previously scattered across a number of different sites. It is set in of countryside, but close to the towns of Penryn and Falmouth, and the campus has a population of around 4,000 students. All the Cornwall departments are constitutionally parts of Schools also represented at the University's Exeter campuses, but for historical reasons they vary in the extent to which they have a distinct Cornish identity.

The current name came into force on 1 March 2006; from 2004 up to this date, the establishment was known as the University of Exeter in Cornwall (UEC). The Cornwall Campus constitutes one of the "hub" sites of the Combined Universities in Cornwall project, and is shared with Falmouth University; many facilities are used in common by the two institutions. The campus is home to the Camborne School of Mines, which has been established in Cornwall for over a century but is now part of the University of Exeter.

Undergraduates at the Cornwall Campus can study Biosciences, English, Environmental Science, Flexible Combined Honours, Geography, Geology, History, Mathematics, Mining Engineering, Natural Sciences, Politics and International Relations and Renewable Energy. A variety of postgraduate degrees are also available.

The University's buildings on the campus were constructed with substantial financial support from European Union Objective 1 funds, matched by UK government funds provided through the South West Regional Development Agency (SWRDA). Since 2006, further development of the campus has been made possible by funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Convergence Programme, SWRDA and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). These last three funding bodies have enabled the development and building of the University's Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI).

The Cornwall Campus is also home to two other major new developments: The Academy for Innovation and Research is a Falmouth University project which will focus on the two research themes of sustainable design and digital economies; and Cornwall Council is building the £13m Tremough Innovation Centre (TIC) on land adjacent to the campus, with the aim of enabling existing and start-up companies to grow and thrive.
