We study some properties of the coset poset associated with the family of subgroups of class ≤ 2 of a nilpotent group of class ≤ 3. We prove that under certain assumptions on the group the coset poset is simply-connected if and only if the group is 2-Engel, and 2-connected if and only if the group is nilpotent of class 2 or less. We determine the homotopy type of the coset poset for the group of 4 × 4 upper unitriangular matrices over Fp, and for the Burnside groups of exponent 3.
