Ambassador House sits tall, bold and full of character at numbers 26 and 28 Queens Gate Terrace, approximately halfway down this row of beautiful, old buildings. Not far from this residence are world renowned museums such as the V&A, Natural History Museum and the Science Museum, so you will never be short of incredible places to visit.
Richmond University’s Kensington accommodation is dotted around the very nearby neighbourhood, with Atlantic House, for example, only being a five minute walk away. Gloucester Road Tube Station is also nearby, offering convenient transport throughout the city, and Gloucester Road itself is overflowing with amenities such as cafes and a variety of places to socialise. You’ll also find something to remind you of home in Partridges, which stocks a range of American foods and products, just on the corner of Queens Gate Terrace.
Ambassador House is catered for by the dining hall at Atlantic House, and accommodates 60 students. All of the rooms, while of different shapes and sizes, are very spacious rooms, with some offering en suite facilities. Some of the rooms have shared bathrooms, but only with a handful of other people. Single rooms are generally allocated to resident assistants and graduating seniors.
This residence benefits from Wi-Fi and a cosy common room, with a TV and multi-region DVD player; a great place to socialise with roommates and fellow students. There are also free Laundrette facilities in the basement.

Courtfield Gardens is literally just a couple of minutes’ walk from Collingham Gardens. It’s not managed by Richmond University, but by a friendly company called Studio Let, who own the building and look after it very well.
Atlantic House is the main building on the Kensington campus and also the biggest residence, providing accommodation for 115 students.
