Welcome to our Student Housing pages
The college works closely with a number of approved landlords and agencies to ensure our students can access good quality and affordable student accommodation. Many of the properties are centrally located in the city with the majority within walking distance of campuses. They are all shared with other students from Hereford College of Arts so you will have something in common with your housemates straight away. We have strong links with Herefordshire Council and our student friendly landlords are required to join an approved accreditation scheme.
We also have a number of rooms available in Halls of Residence, close to College Road Campus. Spaces are limited in Halls and are allocated to first year degree students on a first-come, first-served basis. We advise students to book their accommodation as soon as they can after accepting a place at HCA.
Applicants will be able to search for available rooms from this website from January onwards. We regularly update our property section as and when we take on properties, with the bulk coming on board by early spring. It’s best to arrange your accommodation as soon as you accept your place at Hereford College of Arts. Each property profile contains landlord details so you can arrange viewings etc.
Our Housing Adviser is available to help guide you through the process; if you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Housing Adviser works for the college part time, and will respond to you as soon as she is available.
Hereford College of Arts does not own or manage the properties advertised on its website. The College offers a brokerage service for students and landlords, so we place landlords and potential tenants in contact with one another; the contract is a private one between landlord and tenant and therefore not the liability of the college. Students need to be 18 years or over to use this service.
Hereford College of Arts is one of the few remaining dedicated art colleges in the United Kingdom. Its small scale enables it to offer a more personal learning experience, where friendly tutors and staff get to know the students and smaller class sizes mean that students get lots of 'tutor time'.
The college is split across two different campuses in Hereford, with all of our degree courses based at the College Road Campus. There is a short walk between the two campuses and they are close to the city centre.
Hereford is a lively, compact city with lots to do. You can see live shows, music, comedians and films at the Courtyard Theatre as well as other venues, and the city contains a great selection of pubs, clubs and places to eat. Birmingham, Cardiff and Bristol are easily accessible for big events and Hereford itself plays host to the Borderlines Film Festival every year. There are lots of music festivals and cultural events in the surrounding area too, including h.Art (Herefordshire Art Week), The Hay Festival, Nozstock, Three Choirs Festival and the Ledbury Poetry Festival to name just a few. Whatever your tastes and interests, you can find something to suit you in Herefordshire.
