The college offers two residential options for students: Hall of Residence and Home Stay. Each option offers different benefits for students, so if you have any questions regarding these two options, simply get in touch with us via the contact page.

Hall of Residence – City Village

Parents can be confident that their children will be living in safe, secure and comfortable accommodation.
The hall of residence is located in the heart of Coventry with shops, restaurants, cinemas and the world famous Cathedral all within walking distance. The College has exclusive use of two entire floors of the residence, offering students their first taste of independent living with the security of our team of on-site wardens.

Boys and girls have separate floors and each have their own high quality, serviced, en-suite bedroom.
Access to the building is via a pedestrian precinct and is controlled by card access. A CCTV system is manned at the reception desk. The electronic card is also used for access to the studio bedroom. In the event of card loss a 24 hour mobile number to reception will allow access and lost cards are immediately cancelled.
The hall of residence provides a gymnasium, TV lounge, common room facilities, dining hall and laundry.

All bed linen and towels are changed on a weekly basis. Post and parcels are received and held at reception.

Please note that students must be at least 16 years of age to stay in the hall of residence.

Home Stay

Alternatively, students can choose our Home Stay residential option, whereby students live with carefully selected families in the local area under the guardianship of Sutherland Education Limited. The Sutherland family have been providing educational guardianship services for over 50 years.

Home Stay can help students to progress both socially and academically throughout their time at the college. Home Stay students find that this residential option greatly improves their English language skills and their cultural awareness of the United Kingdom; some have even improved their cooking skills or learned to garden! Each Home Stay is individual to each student and offers an home experience stay is unique to the student and offers a wealth of opportunities

Please note that students under 16 years of age must stay in the Home Stay.

For both residential options, all meals are included 7 days a week. Take a look at our Sample Menus.


NMSC runs a dedicated coach service between the Hall of Residence and the college. Students staying with Home Stay families use the college minibus to travel to and from the college.
