Award-winning Glasgow student residence to be operated by Yugo
Yugo, the first global student housing operator created to enhance students’ experiences throughout and beyond university life, has announced that it will be taking over the management of the student residence, Scotway House.
The award-winning, 399-bed development will be the first site for Yugo in Glasgow and bring the total number of managed student housing properties in Yugo’s UK portfolio to 27. Globally, Yugo now provides over 35,000 student beds spanning nine countries and over 65 cities.
Scotway House features state-of-the-art amenities in an aesthetic and modern space with a mix of en-suite rooms with shared kitchen and living areas, self-contained studios and one-bedroom apartments. Nestled in the heart of Glasgow’s vibrant West End, the accommodation is known for its three-level dedicated study and social building attached to the main block. The building also has a roof terrace, garden courtyards, a cinema room, gaming area, gym, private study booths and social areas.
The idyllic location in Patrick next to the Riverside Museum provides fantastic views of the West End and the River Clyde, as well as the Campsie Fells Mountain Range on clear days.
On a mission to better the planet, Yugo’s Scotway House is on the pathway to reaching net-zero by installing sophisticated IoT technology to reduce its carbon footprint, ensuring a better living environment for residents.
Yugo will also bring its student-led management approach to the property, designed to enhance the overall university experience and empower residents to live their lives with purpose and impact through collaborative events and projects under the Live Your Best Life program - a holistic living experience developed from the Yugo research of thousands of students worldwide. This program supports students through three pillars based on sustainability - YugoEco, education – YuPro, personal development - YuGrow, to deliver on their needs and expectations.
Adding to Yugo’s array of prestigious accolades, Scotway House was awarded ‘Best Climate Crisis Initiative’ at the 2021 Student Accommodation Awards, ‘Most Amazing Design’ at the Northern Design Awards (2019) and was recognised for being the ‘Most Instagrammable Student Accommodation” in Scotland by ‘My Student Halls’.
Richard Brenner, Operations Director, Europe at Yugo, said: “Scotway House perfectly aligns to Yugo’s values to provide accommodation specifically tailored to students’ needs, which is why we’re proud to welcome the development to our global portfolio. Glasgow is a thriving student city, and it has long been our aim to offer the Yugo experience to students here. We’re incredibly excited to open our doors and welcome another 399 students into our Yugo world.”
