Ivy Cottage was the first Student Crib in York, however it was very different to the luxury student house it is now. The property had lain neglected for a few years, was covered in Ivy, and was generally regarded as an eyesore in the town. Between February and August 2011 Student Cribs undertook a huge project to turn it into a magnificent ten bedroom student house, complete with six en-suite bathrooms and a huge sitting room. We also have an impressive property on Haxby Road, very close to the York St John University and the hospital.
Where do students live in York?
York has two Universities, the University of York and York St John University. The main University of York campus is in Heslington, to the South East of the city centre, the York St John campus is just north of the city centre. Our two properties are in extremely popular housing areas for students in York, due to their accessibility to both campus and the city centre, with Fishergate close to the University of York Campus and Haxby Road close to the York St John campus.
