Get an en-suite if you can, so much better. People are nice, but little/NONE night life unless you force it. dead as there’s no where near to go unless you travel to uni for student nights(once a month) or to camden/central. May also be because there is no communal room just a small sofa and dining table in the kitchen where people don’t often hang out. Kitchens shared between about 17-22 people! Sounds a lot but the most people you will see at once in there is about 6. Usually no one or a couple of people so it’s cool. Locked cupboards for your stuff in kitchen which is great, and designated space In fridge and freezer. Everyone complains about their cutlery and stuff being used in the kitchen, but if you lock it away you won’t have a problem. Food in fridge/freezer never ever been stolen. Really quiet halls unless you’re facing the courtyard I’ve heard can get noisy...but for me it’s peaceful in my room Whenever I study etc. Overall nice but dead unless someone organises a drink up
Before coming to ivy, I read almost every single review and most wasn’t so good. So I as a bit gutted. But after living there for a year it honelsty was a pretty decent place, the kitchens was fairly decent and all the bath rooms and showers for standard rooms were always clean and quite spacious, compared to other halls that Middlesex has to offer ivy had the biggest rooms by far! They were massive, I could have 4 people doing push ups in my room if I wanted. The court yard can get nosiey at times but it’s not too bad. Personally if you’re a social person you’ll get along absolutely fine at ivy, but if your a bit quite or so you’ll also be fine, I met loads of people that didn’t want to party or drink all the time. All the blocks are so close to each other you’ll pretty much know everyone from most blocks. Ivy is minutes away from shops down the road and there’s a gym right next door which helps with motivation. Eaither way I loved ivy, I wish I could go back
DO NOT live here. it LOOKS and FEELS like a prison. I could think of more bad things to say than good. I got picked out the standard room a week after freshers so I was late with moving in amongst everyone else who already has. As soon as I arrived, security staff were RUDE and disrespectful and saying that I couldn't move in, leaving a student stranded for the night??? Until a nice residential student helped out and managed to get me a room otherwise I would of been on the streets. So I had a room for the night, then moved into my official one the next day which was a lot bigger for a standard room. Bedsheets were gross (bring your own). Furniture is so outdated. shared 2 TINYYYYY BOX ROOM bathrooms amongst 10 students and it was SO disgusting most of the time. Staff were generally rude. I was walking to my room and one lady said "I don't remember you?" LOL. I'm glad to be moving out as I didn't feel comfortable in my own "home". choose Wembley unite halls (more modern and clean)
Alright, honestly..after almost a year living here, I am so happy to leave. I was able to have an ensuite room which is an advantage. However, if other residents using shared bathroom leave the mess in their bathroom, YOU as a resident are going to be charged for it as well. This happens way too often. Sometimes it is a miracle to get running warm water. The electricity goes down at least once a week, including all the fridges and freezers and you are the one that should go and resolve it, if you don't want your food to go bad. In addition, when it is 30 degrees outside, the management is perfectly useful while keeping the temperature in each room above 35,40 degrees. When it is needed(Winter or during those cold days), they don't care. None of your heaters will work - I got ill 3 times this year because of this, especially when it shuts down during your sleep. They don't do anything about noise complaints so students basically do what they want. Office=1 young polite lady;1 mean lady
Looks like a prison. If you're facing the courtyard you have no chance of sleeping. Walls are thin you can hear everything. Management team are condescending and rude. The "secure" main gate will open if you give it a push which allows anyone to get in. The plus side is that it allows you to meet other people usually with the same interests, they tend to put people on the same course in the same blocks. It is, as always, what you make of it.
It's an ok halls, kitchens and shared bathrooms get cleaned Monday to Friday, if you can get an ensuite, get it!!!!! The rooms are an average size. The down sides of these halls is its a 20 minute bus journey to the uni, you constantly have people/contractors coming in to your room to 'check' things, especially the ensuite room and the shower is leaking. Some of the security staff are useless. Overall it's a good halls very secure and the daytime main office staff are helpful. Hope you enjoy your time there.
