Base Glasgow

20 McPhater Street, Glasgow, G4 0JH, United Kingdom   View Map

Base Glasgow is a stylish student accommodation located on Mcphater Street, offers the perfect student living experience. Owing to its proximity to the city centre, all Glasgow universities are easily accessible and you get to your lectures on time, with ease. Choose to live in an en suite room in a shared flat or independently in a studio. You can benefit from facilities like an onsite gym, cinema room, roof terrace/ sky lounge, study room and much more.

Whether you would like to move in with friends or have the place to yourself, there is something for all at Base Glasgow student accommodation. If you have always dreamed of living independently at uni, you should go in for the spacious studios which are fully furnished with a large comfortable bed, storage space for your belongings, study station, a hi-tech kitchenette and a private en suite bathroom. If you are looking for a more social environment to come back to, after the day at uni then you should opt for the en suite room in a shared flat. All rooms have the same features of a studio, except, you and your flatmates get to share the spacious kitchen and living area. It serves as a great space for you to get acquainted with your flatmates and form lasting friendships. The amenities offered at Base Glasgow are to ensure that you have a comfy stay and never have a dull moment whilst living at the property! There is great Wi-Fi connectivity across the premises, so you can finish your assignments or stream a movie at excellent speed. If you were putting off going to the gym because it’s too far; well, now it’s at your doorstep, so you can stop with the excuses and work out at the onsite gym every day! Studying in your room can get monotonous and for a change of scene, you can utilize the study room. It also comes handy when you have a bunch of people working on a group presentation. Whenever you need a break from studies and want to put your mind to something else, we would recommend a gaming session or two in the games room. There is a large roof terrace/ sky lounge, where you can relax with your friends on a sunny day or you can just visit when you want a moment of peace and get some air.

You would be glad to know that you can go and have a great time at a pub or bar and not have to worry about cabbing it home. Base Glasgow student accommodation Glasgow is literally around the corner from The Station Bar, popularly known as TSB, The Lauders and The Society Room are 5 minutes on foot, give or take. There are some great restaurants within walking distance, so when you are not in the mood to cook, try out Martha’s and Butterfly and the Pig, only to name two amongst many. Where the Monkey Sleeps and Stereo are excellent cafes; perfect to sip on your coffee and read a book or finish your assignments.

The Glasgow city centre is a short walk from Base Glasgow allowing you to explore the best of sites, green spaces, restaurants, cafes, shops and the vibrant nightlife with ease. We do recommend a few places to visit, like the Botanic Gardens and Kelvingrove Park for a picnic and for a cultural experience, visit a few of the museums and art galleries. Glasgow is rated best in shopping only after London! The nightlife is lively and the best place to be at is Sauchiehall Street and Hillhead. If you would like to dance to some great beats, make headway to Viper Club. All in all, you will have a great student experience living here!
