Welcome to the Ivy House!

There's nothing else like it at the University of Florida!  The Ivy House is the premiere dorm hall for University of Florida students, located just off of Sorority Row and walking distance to all your classes. In this friendly, social environment, you can make friendships that will last a lifetime.View details on the fully furnished, all inclusive single, double, and triple room floorplans and their current availability.

What is The Ivy House?  The Ivy House is the best dorm hall for female University of Florida students. It's newly built, with guaranteed placement into the room style that you request. Luxury suites at the Ivy House are much larger than traditional University of Florida dorm rooms—plus, students who choose Ivy enjoy upscale bathrooms, maid service in the common areas, a gourmet kitchen and café with granite countertops, quiet study spaces, and a large living room where they can relax with other residents.

Is it like a traditional University of Florida dorm hall?  The Ivy House offers all of the best features of traditional residence hall housing (located steps from classes, in a social atmosphere where you can meet other University of Florida students). But The Ivy House also offers many unique luxury amenities and service features that you won't find in a traditional University of Florida dorm hall like Broward, Beaty, Hume or Lakeside. For example: residents at Ivy are guaranteed to be placed into the size room that they sign up for on their housing agreements, and all students who apply and are accepted, will be guaranteed placement. There's covered, assigned parking available. There are NO late applicant triples (definition: late applicant triples are double rooms found in traditional University of Florida dorm buildings, where three students are squeezed). At The Ivy House, there's expert roommate matching based on each student's specific personality profile, study habits, cleanliness, sleep habits, and social activities. Or students can request to live with friends, and the Ivy House will guarantee that they will be placed together. The rooms are larger than the traditional University of Florida residence halls, and yet, less expensive. Overall, it's designed to be a far more comfortable environment for students to live in. You'll find that The Ivy House is a unique, luxury setting with large, fully furnished suites and a long list of unique amenities—like our jetted Jacuzzi tubs. You won't find that in a traditional University of Florida dorm hall. Start the reservation process now!
