As the biggest city in Scotland, Glasgow is loved by its residents and tourists alike. Regularly featured as one of the world’s top cities to visit, there are more than 130,000 students in Glasgow giving the city a rich diversity and energy like nowhere else. Glasgow is renowned as a city of culture, sport, shopping, green spaces and culinary excellence.
Our student accommodation Glasgow is perfectly located close to all of the city’s universities and colleges and all are within easy walking distance of the accommodation. Base Glasgow is on the doorstep of The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland which has chosen Base Glasgow as its exclusive student residence. Base Glasgow is supported by excellent public transport links and is surrounded by theatres, cinemas and concert halls with a multitude of art and culture on the doorstep, as well as being close to sports venues and all of the fantastic nightlife and restaurants of Glasgow.
For newcomers to Glasgow the initial escape to Scotland’s largest city might seem daunting, but right away you’ll find it is very easy to navigate. A grid system ensures that it is always easy to find your way to your destination in the centre and the subway system works on a simple loop, which is easy to get around on. For many students most destinations for work and pleasure can be easily reached either by foot or bike so you won’t have to spend too much of your student loan on getting around.
There is a certain allure to Glasgow life, which ultimately sees many students stay well beyond their University stay. Wandering around the streets you’ll find some stunning historical buildings, beautifully designed, and the free-to-enter Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art provide stunning examples of art from all eras. For shopping head over to Buchanan Street or one of the many shopping centres in the city. If you are into films you can find the usual blockbuster cinema complexes but also older art cinemas, such as The Glasgow Film Theatre. As a UNESCO City of Music, Glasgow provides ample opportunity for both grassroots music listening and touring bands of a high stature. If you are a bit of a foodie, Glasgow offers diverse cuisine, and is also one of the best places for vegan food in the whole of the UK.
Glasgow is also home to a selection of beautiful outdoor parks and attractions, such as the Botanic Gardens, Pollok Country Park and Kelvingrove Park. As far as being close to other parts of the country, Glasgow is a central transportation hub for travel down South to the North of England and beyond, but also East to Edinburgh as well as north to the national parks.

Covid-19 Special Tenancy Procedures for 2020-21 Academic Year Bookings
This document sets out how will proceed with requests for cancellation or delay specifically relating to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The tenancy agreement is for a fixed term and the student (and guarantor) are liable for the full term of that agreement unless and until express written release is granted.
The usual Termination of Student Tenancy Policy applies for all cancellation requests that are not EXPLICITLY related to the COVID-19 (Corona virus) outbreak.
Initial Cancellation Period A student can cancel a tenancy agreement for up to 14 days after the date the booking is confirmed (the Initial Cancellation Period). For bookings made from 1st August to 30th September ahead of the academic year the booking is for, the Initial Cancellation Period reduces to 7 days. We will refund the full security deposit. £20 will be deducted from the refunded amount to cover any international bank charges for deposit refunds made to non-UK banks.
Outside the Initial Cancellation Period If a student wishes to cancel outside of the Initial Cancellation Period, and the cancellation reason is explicitly related to COVID-19, then the following applies:
COVID-19 Special Cancellation Policy (2020-21 Academic Year)
Outside Initial Cancellation Period You may cancel outside of the Initial Cancellation Period in the following circumstances:
• 20-21 Course which is reliant on IELTS/Pre-sessional course If the student is a prospective first year Undergraduate or Postgraduate student and the offer of a place at the University or Higher Education Institute in the UK is subject to completing and passing an IELTS (or equivalent) in the UK or in the student’s country of origin, and this is unable to be completed because the IELTS (or equivalent) is withdrawn entirely, the student may be eligible to be released from the 20-21 tenancy agreement.
The student must provide written evidence that the course is no longer taking place at all within 3 days of being notified by the education institute and we will release the student from the 20-21 contract without penalty and refund the deposit paid.
• Travel Ban If the student is unable to travel to, or enter, the UK due to a restriction on leaving their country of origin, or a restriction on entering the UK which means they cannot arrive in time to start their course, the student may be eligible to be released from this agreement subject to evidence being provided of a formal travel ban being in force.
There must be a specific government ban in place at the start date of the student’s course that prevents the student coming to the UK, or entering the UK in time to start their course, and there must be no realistic prospect of a delayed course start date.
• 20-21 Flexible Start *SOME PROPERTIES ARE EXCLUDED FROM THE 2020-21 FLEXIBLE START POLICY, THIS IS ONLY APPLICABLE AT PROPERTIES AS DISPLAYED If the course start date in the UK is formally delayed by the University or Higher Education Institute, the student may be eligible for a reduction in the 20-21 tenancy length, and start the tenancy later.
The student must provide written evidence that the course start date has been delayed within 3 days of being notified by the education institute, or this must be publicly available and formally announced by the University, the contract may be adjusted accordingly.
If a tenancy agreement is adjusted, the reduction in tenancy length will be by a maximum of the length of the formal delay to teaching unless specifically stated otherwise. Some properties may have a maximum length of delay.
Termination by Choice A tenancy cannot be terminated outside of the Initial Cancellation Period by a student who is already in the UK, or by a student who does not want to attend the university, or who does not want to come to the UK of their own choice. The student remains liable for the entire rent until a suitable replacement tenant is found and all clauses within the tenancy agreement remain applicable. If the room is re-let we will refund the deposit, less any appropriate charges and a deduction of £50 for the administration of the variation of the tenancy agreement.
