Double Rooms
in the luxury residence halls are ideal for students who want to have a roommate and a more social environment-- but want more space. Ivy House Elite & Premier double rooms are significantly larger than University of Florida’s double dorm rooms. The smallest size Double rooms at the Ivy House are approximately 160 sq ft; the larger doubles (Premier Doubles) are up to 251 square feet, up to 31% larger than on-campus double rooms.

At the Ivy House, each Double room comes equipped with a sink & vanity, 2 bed sets, 2 desk sets, windows, mini-blinds, and a pre-installed ceiling fans. The larger doubles (Select, Elite, Premier, & Private Bath Doubles) have 2 closets with closet organizers. The Drawer Stack Double rooms have only 1 closet & 1 closet organizer. All rooms include central a/c and plush carpeting. Bathrooms are located on the hall, shared with rooms next door. Bathrooms come equipped with jetted Jacuzzi tubs, showers, and large vanities.Bathrooms and common areas are cleaned 6 days a week by a maid service. The Ivy House is female-only.

From this info, you can see that each resident has her own bed & desk set.

Important roommate information: remember that residents at the Ivy House luxury residence hall can choose between living with a requested friend, or using an professional roommate matching system. This is a large advantage over the traditional University of Florida residence halls (which offer random roommate assignment based on gender alone, and no personality or roommate matching questionnaire).
