This fields records the NIA of space used to house students of the HE provider. Space taken up by wardens in residences should also be included. Providers should exclude space used for catering facilities, which should be included under Support not offices NIA (SMNIAS) as far as possible.

Where the associated costs, such as waste and energy cannot be separately identified for a commercial space area, NIA for the commercial space area should be included in the EMR under Total NIA commercial space. Providers should return the commercial space area as per other areas under the appropriate space measurement field, in this case Residential NIA. Providers should also return the space under Total NIA commercial space. This way, the total commercial space area can be distinguished from Total NIA.
