Following the huge success of West Village, Downing Students opened the doors of West View in September 2018. Just a very short walk away from West Village, West View offers 310 exceptional rooms with a combination of shared apartments and studios.
Just when you thought our student housing couldn’t get any better, West View’s student apartments have set even higher standards for students in Glasgow.
Like West Village, West View is conveniently located only five minutes’ walk from the University of Glasgow and fifteen minutes by Metro to the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian University.
With all the amenities that you can expect from a student housing company that really cares about you and what you need to get the best from your student experience, West View offers first class accommodation with a great choice of luxurious apartments. Whether you are looking for your own en-suite bedroom in a shared student flat for 5 or 6 people, or your own space in a choice of fully self-contained studios, you can study in style and find your perfect home from home.
You will receive a warm welcome to our community and can take full advantage of West View’s plush social space and regular events to make friends. Work out in the gym, chill out in the Cinema Room, or beat your friends at table tennis!
Security is a priority, we have secure entry systems to keep you safe and we are on site 24/7 to take care of you. With years of experience, you can trust our friendly management team who is waiting to welcome you to West View. Book Now!
