Guaranteed accommodation for first year students.
Coming to Hereford to study might be your first time living away from home. Early in the application process, you will be asked to let us know if you are interested in living in NMITE accommodation. If your preference is to live in privately rented accommodation elsewhere in the city, the Student Services team can provide you with further information.
NMITE's student accommodation will allow you to enjoy your new-found independence in safe, welcoming and sociable surroundings. We hope you will learn to feel at home in our well-equipped, spacious and modern spaces. NMITE's accommodation is self-catered, and all rooms are en-suite. Shared areas provide space to socialise and all kitchens have facilities such as cookers, fridges and freezers; as well as plenty of cupboard space.
Students need to bring their own cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils and pans. You will have access to wi-fi, hot water, electricity and heating with all utility bills and basic contents insurance included in your rental price. NMITE's accommodation is within walking distance of our main campus buildings, and the city centre. Once you hold an offer with us we'll be able to provide you with further information on booking your accommodation. Take a look at our Fees and Funding section to find out how to apply for a ‘Maintenance Loan’ to help you with the cost of your accommodation.
