LOCATION

WHAT’S NEARBY?

The Richmond is a great location for students as it’s situated right next to the University of Johannesburg. If you need to do some shopping, Campus Square is just a short walk away and is a popular mall among students. There you can find everything from groceries to fast food to some of the most popular clothing stores.

The area is well connected to the rest of Johannesburg via local transport, so you can easily get to places like Braamfontein, Rosebank, and Cresta. Additionally, there are local clinics and hospitals nearby in case of any medical emergencies.
