Another reason flats are so popular in the area is that it is the location of the University of Glasgow. The university was originally located in the High Street area but moved to its current location in 1870. The popularity of the area with students therefore means that flats are often picked up quickly and can receive a good rental rate.
The area is also frequented by BBC employees and those associated with the TV industry due to the location of BBC Scotland in the area. This can also mean that short term rent properties can be popular as people come to work at the building for a short period of time and don’t want to be living in a hotel, especially if they bring family with them.
Hillhead has good connections into the city centre including two subway stations on the Glasgow Sunway. Also within the area is Byres Road, an important commercial area with a large number of independent boutiques and fashionable shops, adding to the appeal of it.
