Room in Margaret Macdonald House.

Glasgow Margaret Macdonald House

Margaret Macdonald House is the Schools original accommodation site and so it has a wealth of history and has been a popular choice for our students since the site was first opened in 1995. Situated within a close proximity to the main campus in Garnethill, this site has plenty of character to offer our students. With space for over 100 residents across four apartment blocks, each student can expect to live in a flat with four, six or eight bedrooms, with a mixture of ensuite and shared bathroom facilities. Within each flat, residents share a communal kitchen and lounge area with ample furnishings and access to an outdoor courtyard.  Margaret Macdonald House residents also have access to the communal rooms within Blythwood House.

Location: 89 Buccleuch Street, G3 6QT
