Cornwall College has confirmed its Saltash campus will close later this year due to 'reduced funding'.
The site has provided post-16 education and training for students for 35 years, but will shut its doors in July.
Students will be given the option to relocate to either the college's St Austell site or Duchy Stoke Climsland near Launceston.
Parents, students and staff have been sharing their disappointment on social media.
Some have expressed frustration that they learned the news through social media, rather than directly from the college.
