South University, Richmond
Established in 2009, South University, Richmond is right in the heart of Short Pump and is surrounded by eateries, shopping, a fitness center, and a bustling community. Richmond is an eclectic and historical city, with a youthful population that is known for its great food, festivals and access to outdoor adventures, like the river rapids of the James that run through its center. We get to experience the beauty of summer, fall, winter, and spring in Richmond and find ourselves only an hour or two away from Washington D.C., the Chesapeake Bay or the Blue Ridge Mountains.
