Student Accommodation

225 Bath Street, Glasgow

Our aim is to keep you up-to-date with the latest developments on the site


Project Overview

About the project

The Student Accommodation complex, located at 225 Bath Street in Glasgow city centre, will replace a vacant 1970’s office block which was demolished. Delivered by contractor GRAHAM and designed by Glasgow-based architects Cooper Cromar, the development will create 551 bedrooms across 12 storeys.

Due for competition in 2025, students will benefit from luxury communal amenities including a gym, a gaming arcade, dining spaces and social areas set across 16,390 sq. ft. The new complex sits adjacent to an existing student accommodation block – Elgin Place – which includes 323 beds, also delivered by GRAHAM.

The new design will complement the wider streetscape with a glazed frontage and the Student Accommodation development will offer a variety of tenures, allowing students to choose the block they live in.
