Richmond Place is so convenient to the central University campus and comprises Churchill House with 218 and adjacent Fleming House with 20 residents. Very close to public parks, such as the Meadows, Holyrood Park and Arthurs Seat, it has easy access to shops and cafes in the Newington area of the city and is only a short distance to the University’s fantastic Centre for Sport and Exercise.
