Food & housing

Food Services

HMU offers free meals to roughly 3000 students in the restaurants located at the main facilities of the TEI in Heraklion and its Departments in Chania, Rethymno, Agios Nikolaos and Sitia.  

All undergraduate students who have not exceeded the 12th semester of studies are entitled to free meals.

The meal card is valid for a year and its use is prohibited to anyone else but the student, to whom it was granted.

All HMU restaurants, in each of the four prefectures, offer breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week.

The opening hours of the restaurants are:

07:30 – 09:00

12:00 – 16:00

19:00 – 22:00

Accommodation

HMU provides for Residence Halls which can host 296 students in Heraklion and 37 students at the Departments located in Chania, Rethymno, Agios Nikolaos and Sitia.

There are 56 positions in double rooms, 4 positions designed for disabled students and 236 positions in single rooms. Double rooms cost 30€ per month, while single rooms cost 45€ per month. There is no charge for students from a large family, in case they choose a double room. The income of these rents is used mostly to support student events and partly to cover operating costs.

Students not having received a room in the residence halls are entitled to a rent allowance, as long as they comply with the conditions of Article 10 of Law No 3220/2004 (Government Gazette 15A/2004).
