    Writtle House

    This distinctive black and white building is our most historic student residence, full of character and charm. Almost 100 years ago, the Royal family often stayed overnight at Writtle House before flying away on exotic trips from the nearby Hendon aerodrome. Today, Middlesex University's Writtle House is a Grade II listed building that has been converted into a traditional and rather quiet hall of residence.
