Accommodation and Meals:
Exchange students at the University of Hertfordshire are encouraged to live in on-campus housing. Accommodation is available on both of UH’s campuses, the College Lane campus and the de Havilland campus, which are a 20-minute walk from each other and connected by a free university shuttle service offered every 10 minutes daily. A variety of room types are available, including single and double rooms, private and shared bathrooms, and traditional or apartment-style residence halls. Students will apply for housing on the UH Accommodation webpage after being officially accepted by UH and receiving their UH student ID number. Full information on accommodation at UH is available at http://www.herts.ac.uk/university-life/student-accommodation. Students may choose to purchase a “bedding pack” from UH or bring or purchase their own bedding.
UH does not have pre-paid “meal plans.” Shared kitchen facilities are available in all on-campus accommodation, and students may also choose to dine in on-campus cafeterias (on a pay-as-you-go basis) or off-campus eateries.
Student Life and Surroundings:
The University of Hertfordshire has an active campus life, including over 50 clubs and societies for students to get involved in. UH also boasts some of the best sports and fitness facilities in the country. The Students' Union on the College Lane campus is the hub of university life, with regular live music and events throughout the year.
The University of Hertfordshire is located in Hatfield, a town of 30,000 in the county of Hertfordshire. There are a number of shops, restaurants, and supermarkets in Hatfield, which are accessible on foot, by bus, or by taxi from the UH campus. Nearby St. Albans, accessible from Hatfield by bus, boasts a historic city center with charming shops and eateries, as well as the historic St. Albans Cathedral, a 15th century clock tower, and the ruins of Roman city walls in its Verulamium Park.
Hatfield is located just 20 miles north of London, and a 22-minute train service connects Hatfield Station to Kings Cross Station in London.
Exchange programs operate on a tuition-exchange basis, allowing UW-Whitewater students to pay UW-W tuition rates while studying abroad. Other expenses vary according to the cost of living in the host country. As with all approved study abroad programs, UW-W financial aid can be used on this program. Eligible students are encouraged to apply for the Wisconsin Grant for Study Abroad, as well as UW-W and external study abroad scholarships.
Cost of Attendance, Financial Aid, and Scholarships:
Tuition, OGE Administrative Fees and CISI insurance are billed through UW-Whitewater. Other expenses are paid individually (e.g. flights, personal expenses) or to the host university (e.g. accommodation).

**Average housing costs; exact housing cost varies based on housing option chosen as well as the housing contract length. Note that fall semester housing contracts are 17 weeks, while spring semester housing contracts are 26 weeks and go through mid-July. Therefore, spring housing costs (~$5250 USD average) will be significantly higher than fall housing costs (~$4,600 USD average).
***For comparison, the UW-W Financial Aid office estimates the cost of attendance on the UW-Whitewater campus for one semester to be $9,521
Passport and Visa Requirements:
Students will need a passport to study abroad that is valid for at least 6 months beyond their program end date. U.S. citizens are not required to apply for a visa unless they plan on studying in the UK for longer than 6 months, in which case a Tier 4 student visa is required.
