While studying at Humber Maritime College, cadets will stay at our halls of residence for the first phase and may choose to return for subsequent phases or rent local housing.

Cadets will be staying in Humber Lodge which is our largest halls of residence. The building is made up of an original house, with a large, modern extension attached. There are communal kitchens, showers and toilets on all floors for ease of access for residents. The main common room is a large lounge on the ground floor for residents to relax, watch television and work in.

Cadets will use part of their training salary/allowance to pay for our halls of residence. Staying in halls prepares cadets for an independent lifestyle before going out to sea.

Our accommodation has a car park on site, free for residents to use with barrier access. Humber Lodge is located just across the road from our Grimsby Institute campus and a 15-minute walk into the town centre.

If you have your own vehicle you can drive to Humber Maritime College, however free bus passes are provided on request.

To stay in our halls of residence cadets must be 18.
