- Liberty Living
Private Student Accommodation
Accommodation available in Glasgow
Liberty Park is located close to Glasgow’s city centre, and is also just a stone’s throw away from Glasgow Caledonian University and the University of Strathclyde with the University of Glasgow only a short bus ride away.
Liberty Park itself is an exciting student hub and so is the city, which provides an abundance of things for you to see and explore from shopping, museums and galleries to bars and local eateries.
When you stay with us, you’ll be safe and secure throughout the residence. We have CCTV as well as 24 hour staff, plus contents insurance is included as standard. In fact, everything is included in your rent – how cool is that, right!
Liberty House puts you in a prime position if you're studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and just a short distance from both Glasgow Caledonian University and the University of Strathclyde, too.
Situated on Miller Street, right in the heart of the city centre, the residence is within easy reach of all local amenities and transport. Liberty House's closeness to the town centre allows you to get right into the action, and you’ll never be stuck for things to do or people to do them with.
If working and playing hard leaves you no time to worry about the finer details, don’t worry. We have on-site teams to look out for you 24/7 and your bills are inclusive in your rent, too, so there’s no time wasted in stressing out.
Glasgow is a vibrant, bustling hub. It’s one of the UK’s friendliest cities, full of culture and pride. Art, music and theatre make up the bones of the city as well as an abundance of other things to see and do – you’ll be spoiled for choice.
Glasgow for students
Students in Glasgow make up a large proportion of the growing population – with some estimates saying there are way over 100,000 students in the city. Its cosmopolitan lifestyle means you’ll be part of a modern and progressive community to help achieve your dreams.
Our student accommodation in Glasgow gives you the chance to make yourself a home close to Glasgow’s key universities.
These include the University of Glasgow, Glasgow Caledonian University, The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, University of Strathclyde, University of the West of Scotland and Glasgow School of Art which are all brilliant institutions to attend and get your degree.
As a student, it’s important to refuel. Glasgow is the perfect place to eat as a student because there’s simply so much choice. In the city centre, you’ll find your usual chains as well as independent offerings and even American imports.
Down in the West End (the hip hangout for students), there are loads of delicious places to eat. Here, delectable tapas, traditional Scottish food and almost every other kind of cuisine can be found, and there’s a real mix of casual and formal dining options. This is a perfect area to bring your parents, because it’s equally classy as it is quirky.
Glasgow does Indian cuisine really, really well, so you won’t be disappointed no matter where you choose. There’s also an eclectic range of bistros and cafés to choose from across the city, all close to our Glasgow student accommodation.
Things to do
Glasgow is one of the best locations in the UK for shopping, with all the high street chains you could ever want, right through to exclusive, chic boutiques, up-and-coming designers, independent stores and more. Head to Buchanan Galleries, Princes Square and Merchant City, or if you’re a little more budget-conscious, try one of the markets instead.
Cinemas aren’t lacking, and you’ll even find the tallest cinema in the world at Cineworld as well as two independents, meaning you’ll be able to catch the biggest and best releases throughout the city – and all just a stone’s throw from our private student accommodation in Glasgow.
There are loads of student-friendly night spots throughout the city, from some of Glasgow’s biggest clubs through to multi-storey alternative venues. It’s also pretty good for karaoke as well if that’s up your street!
Arts & culture
Whether you want art, theatre, music or something else, Glasgow has you culturally covered! Home of the Scottish Opera, the Scottish Ballet and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, there’s loads to do to try something new, or even to impress your parents when they visit.
Glasgow has some incredible architecture, and it’s something the city is famed for, as is Charles Rennie Mackintosh – the revered artist. There are also loads of theatres and visual arts venues as well as over 30 different museums and galleries dotted across the city, so you should never get stuck for things to do!
Live music is a major deal in Glasgow, reflected in the sheer number of concert venues. The SECC hosts many major international artists, but there’s also Barrowland Ballroom, the O2 Academy, and King Tut’s Wah Wah hosting a diverse array of acts.
Health & wellbeing
Walking around Glasgow is absolutely charming, and there are plenty of places within the city that’ll offer a little bit of an oasis from the bright lights. Kelvingrove Park is situated in the West End, and it’s a lovely space to spend an entire day.
Glasgow hosted the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2018 European Championships, so it’s a city which integrates sport into its heart seamlessly. There are facilities galore which are open to students. In fact, there are loads of different sports to get involved with in the city, including skiing on one of the city’s two dry ski slopes.
If you just want to go to a gym, Glasgow has plenty. There are also lots of facilities on the different campuses, plus help for a range of health issues as well.
Getting around cheaply and efficiently is more than possible in Glasgow, so you can make the right decision to suit you. The buses are cheap and reliable, and there’s a safe and easy-to-catch underground system throughout the city, too – taking you around the city limits for a very fair price.
Trains are also available to local destinations and those further afield. You can use your national railcard if you've got one on loads of routes in and around Glasgow and beyond. Glasgow also has its very own airport, which will take you to UK destinations as well as those much further away.

Liberty Living operates in accordance with the National Code of Standards for student accommodation. The Code of Standards is run by ANUK (The Accreditation Network UK), the NUS, and Unipol Student Homes, and is supported by universities across the UK.
Liberty Living joined the Code of Standards to give our students peace of mind. You can be assured that you will enjoy a high standard of living in accordance with the Code of Standards, and a prompt resolution to problems should they ever occur when you stay at any of Liberty Living’s residences.
Liberty Living follow a distinct set of standards for our student accommodation, called the ANUK/Unipol National Codes. The purpose of these Codes, (membership of which is voluntary), is to provide students with professional housing services.
The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.
What does being a member of the codes mean?
- Both parties can enjoy the benefits of good standards of housing management and practice.
- Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced.
- If problems do occur they can be promptly resolved.
- The independent complaints procedure operated by the Codes can be used for complaint resolution.
