Ivy Hall

This is a friendly hall with a great community spirit

There are large shared kitchens where you can cook for yourself and your friends. Get outside in the courtyard to play table tennis and sit in the sun.

It's a good choice for all students as there are good transport links and it’s only a short journey to campus. For nursing students, Ivy Hall is well connected to hospitals where you’ll do placements.
