We have over 1400 single room across our halls of residence which are managed by Optivo and Unite Students. These associations specialise in the delivery of student accommodation. Ivy hall is signed up to the Universities UK Code of Practice . The code outlines best practice and provides benchmarks for the management and quality of student housing in the Higher Education sector. Optivo & Unite are affiliated to The Accreditation Network UK ( ANUK) and have signed to the National Code of Standards for Larger Developments for Writtle House, Platt hall and Usher Hall.
Students without any holds against their records can make an online application and pay the £250 deposit required from 1st March onwards. However the application will not be looked at until late August. If we are unable to offer you a room your deposit will refunded.
