This is a great option for first year students looking to have a private bathroom within in the room. Below you will find information about the room set-up, amenities, and how to get involved and become a part of the Richmond Lion Community!

"The atmosphere of Richmond created by both amazing residents and a close-knit staff really makes it feel like home. For being a newer building on campus, Richmond has already established a unique culture and community. This unique mix really shines forth in the popular weekly programs ranging anyway from karaoke nights to craft nights to video game tournaments."
