RGU has provided TVs in the lounge of each flat which includes a TV licence so you can watch TV with flatmates or connect your console for playing games.

This is one of the few sites with free parking on site but do note that parking is limited and cannot be guaranteed.

Crathie is an environmentally aware site, with automated lighting in communal areas and solar panels on the roof.
