About Glasgow

Located in the Scottish lowlands on the River Clyde, Glasgow was one of the most important ports in the British Isles during the 18th and 19th century, known both for trade and for shipbuilding. Today, Glasgow is the largest city by population in Scotland and the 3rd-largest in the UK. Glasgow is a cultural hub for Scotland. It’s where you’ll find the Scottish Ballet, Scottish Opera, and National Theater of Scotland, along with a range of museums celebrating both art and history. The local music scene is strong, too, and you can hear live music at one of the local pubs or venues any night of the week. While English is the primary language in Scotland, you might not believe it when you first hear the locals speak. The local dialect, known as the “Glasgow patter”, can be very difficult to understand, especially for newcomers. Once you can understand them, though, you’ll find the locals friendly and welcoming, especially if you’re stopping by a pub for a pint.

What are Co-living Spaces?

Co-living, also known as co-housing, house-sharing, or room-sharing, is a growing trend in big cities across the country. Co-living is when a group of people—often strangers—come together to share common living spaces, save money, and enjoy a more affordable lifestyle. Apartment buildings dedicated to co-living situations will offer 2 or 3 bedroom units with common areas including a living room, kitchen and dining area. Bedrooms and bathrooms may be private or shared. Co-living differs from a typical shared rental (roommate) situation in that co-living spaces are frequently furnished, don’t require long leases, and almost always include WiFi and utilities. They can also include housekeeping services and some even offer catered functions for tenants, housemates, and their guests. Co-living property managers handle billing and repairs of the building, generally through an app. The typical demographic enjoying a co-living lifestyle are millennials and young professionals in large cities and tech hubs such as San Francisco or Austin, but they are also starting to pop up in cities around the world. People of all ages who find themselves in need of affordable housing are increasingly looking to co-living as a viable option.
