Lower Cottage – Richmond University

Lower Cottage

Lower Cottage

Lower CottageSitting snugly to the left as you come in the main entrance to the campus, Lower Cottage is a mere 1 minute walk from the main building. One of our smaller satellite buildings, it’s a cosy residence split over two storeys. It feels like a cottage, and even benefits from its own outside seating area – perfect for studying and socialising in the summer months. There’s even a traditional English pub ‘The Lass o’ Richmond Hill’, just over the road.

Lower Cottage has a resident director assigned to it, who visits regularly. Just seven students live here at any one time, making it a good option for those who seek a bit of quiet.

Like all of our residences, Lower Cottage benefits from security patrols and CCTV, ensuring it’s secured safely. Toilets and showers are shared. As part of your accommodation you will have catering, which includes meal plans, and being so close to the main building, all of the facilities being offered there also.
