"Windsor is a great place to live, especially for 1st year students! The closets are huge and it's nice to have a bathroom, fridge, and microwave right there in the room. I really enjoy the pool/deck area for laying out and swimming. It's super close to campus, whether you walk, bike, or take the bus, which has a stop conveniently down the road."
"I definitely recommend living in Windsor. It is far better than living in the dorms. The closets are big and the pool is great to have."
"Ivy House is not only extremely close to campus and conveniently located, but it is also so luxurious. It has the comfort of a home, the roominess of an apartment, and the ease of a dorm. It is truly a great place to live."
"I heard so many horror stories about the bathrooms in on-campus dorms that when I found out about the luxury dorm Windsor Hall, and their attached private bathrooms, I knew it was perfect for me. I don't have to worry about 35+ people using my bathroom. That's GROSS!"
"Windsor Hall is great. It's a dorm, but an apartment type too! Closer to campus than even some on-campus places."
"I love living in Windsor! They matched me and my roommate so well. We haven't had one fight all year. If I wasn't living in my sorority house next year, I would live with her. They accommodate so well and the location is great for Sorority Row!"
"When I found out I didn't get an on-campus dorm, I immediately looked into the luxury dorms. I was lucky enough to get one of the last spots available at the Ivy House. And I'm glad I did. I ended up being closer to my classes than the dorms I requested on-campus, and the rooms were definitely nicer and larger. If I had signed up earlier I could've had an even bigger room!"
"Living in the Ivy House was one of the best decisions I could have made my freshman year. I was worried about living off-campus but the proximity to campus, downtown, and the amenities that come with being in Ivy made it an incredible experience. I live in a single but I have made incredible friendships and would highly suggest Ivy to anyone looking for a home!"
"I love the fact that I did not live in a traditional dorm yet still had all the convenience of being so close to campus and a bus stop!"
"Love Ivy House! So much nicer than traditional dorms, and the roommate matching is great."
"Ivy House is not just a house, it's a home with the best location near campus and amazing rooms for you and your friends! Don't even get me started on the luxurious bathooms kept clean by the wonderful maintenance team! It's honestly the best place to live."
"I lived at Windsor my first year at the University of Florida. I met 2 other guys at Windsor who I've been friends with since. I got the 'college dorm experience' without having to worry about all the negatives that freshmen experience in traditional dorms, like having to carry shampoo down the hall everyday and wear flip flops in the shower. And I liked cooking in my attached kitchenette (even if it was just heating up pizza). I had the on campus meal plan, too, and it was great."
"My freshman year I lived in an on-campus dorm, Springs. I got annoyed with living so far away from my classes, and I wanted something nicer and more upscale. For my sophomore year, I looked into the luxury dorm Windsor Hall instead. Windsor was way nicer than I expected. It's really upscale. The Windsor rooms have attached bathrooms and kitchenettes, and they're a LOT larger than a lot of the doubles on-campus. I like that there's a pool."
"I absolutely love living at Ivy House! I have lived here for the past 3 years and have really been blessed with such an awesome room and location. I couldn't be happier living in a single!"
"I absolutely love living at Ivy House! I have lived here for the past 3 years and have really been blessed with such an awesome room and location. I couldn't be happier living in a single and love the fact that I've made great friends living here too!"
"I love my dorm!"
I came to the University of Florida not knowing anyone, and I didn't want to live in a traditional dorm because I knew that they did random roommate assignments. I chose Ivy House in part because they have free roommate matching that matches students by personality, study habits, and stuff like that. They did a great job. I got along great with the girl they matched me with. We are still friends to this day and continued to live together at the same place when we moved out of the dorms."
"Very spacious, considering it's a dorm-style apartment; you get your own bathroom, which is a plus, and The roommate matching system is surprisingly good."
"I really enjoyed living at Windsor Hall my freshman year. It was a great location for my classes and sorority involvement. It has the perks of living in a dorm while being more spacious and clean. Also the customer service was wonderful and made for a very positive experience."
"I found Windsor Hall to be a great place for incoming freshmen. The place felt welcoming and allows students to engage with others and study in a quiet environment. The rooms are spacious as well as quiet."
"I love Trimark. My room is so much bigger than the University of Florida dorms, but I still get the "dorm" experience. I've met tons of nice girls hanging out in the kitchen or in our living room. It makes me feel like I'm at home, and I love showing the place off. I highly recommend living here! I love having a pool in the backyard too!"
"I started at in Summer B and lived in Springs, which is one of the on-campus dorms. It was a tough transition for me. From the housing paperwork I received from the University of Florida, I thought I was going to get a nice dorm, and I was really unhappy with the actual room when I got here. I thought I was going to get a dorm room like what you see in the movies, and let's just say that I see now why they don't give tours of the actual on-campus dorm rooms that people live in during Preview. Plus, since they do random roommate assignments, my roommate was messy and loud and nothing like me. For Fall, I wanted a reasonably priced Single room if possible or one with an attached bathroom. I thought about staying on-campus again in the Fall and taking my chances, but for on-campus dorms you just don't get what you request. With my luck I'd end up in a triple without a/c. So I went to Windsor Hall, where they guarantee you whichever style and size room you request. Now I have my own Single dorm room suite, bathroom, and kitchenette. I'm close enough to campus, I can sleep in late and skip the bus. I have the privacy I want along with the social atmosphere. And I rushed my freshmen year, and my sorority is just down the street. It's definitely the best fit for me."
"Windsor has turned out to be the perfect match for my roommate and I! We are both in sororities so the location is super convenient. Also, the room match worked out awesome! We are super close and love Windsor as our home."
"My room is great! It is very spacious and when I got there it was so clean! Trimark did a great job of setting it up for us. Everything works perfectly fine! The people living in Windsor are all super nice and the lobby area is a great place to meet everyone. There's also a pool where we can relax and talk to other people! I feel right at home!"
"The Ivy House is a perfect location for any young woman seeking housing. It is still extremely social (it doesn't feel like you are off-campus). The amenities are a thousand times better than the University of Florida provides. I am so glad I chose to live at Ivy House instead of on-campus!"
