WATCH: A student village by stealth? The impact of student accommodations on community

In this video, CommonSpace journalist Rhiannon Davies explores the impact of purpose built student accommodation on communities in the West End.

After a recent planning decision was overturned, giving the go-ahead for developers to build an additional 45 flats in Yorkhill, community campaigners have accused Glasgow City Council of creating “a student village by stealth”.

This video has been adapted from a piece originally made in 2017 as part of an MSc in Media, Communication and International Journalism at the University of Glasgow.
