Glasgowis the largest city in Scotland and third most populous city in the United Kingdom with a population of 615,070.
Glasgow grew from a small rural settlement on the River Clyde to become the largest seaport in Britain. From the eighteenth century onwards, the city also grew as one of Great Britain’s main hubs of transatlantic trade with North America and the West Indies.
With the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the population and economy of Glasgow and the surrounding region expanded rapidly to become one of the world’s pre-eminent centres of chemicals, textiles and engineering as well as the shipbuilding and marine engineering industry.
Today, Glasgow has the largest economy in Scotland, mainly in financial and business services, communications, biosciences, creative industries, healthcare, higher education, retail and tourism.
Many cultural institutions such as Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, The Hydro, the SECC, Glasgow Cathouse, The Art School and King Tut’sWahWah Hut are based in the city and have a well-known reputation throughout the United Kingdom.
Glasgow Self-Storage: At A Glance
With such a large population living in Glasgow, moving in and out, there are numerous self-storages available. Choosing the one that suits your needs should not be a problem. City and its surrounding host five self-storages different in size with two of them located just near city centre. You can use storages for differently sized items: from books and clothes that overcrowd your home, to robust pieces of furniture that need to be laid aside while moving, as well as for short and long term storing of goods.
Does Glasgow student population affect self-storage prices?
Glasgow hosts four universities: University of Glasgow, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Caledonian University and University of the West of Scotland and three further education colleges: City of Glasgow College, Glasgow Clyde College and Glasgow Kelvin College, with total student population of over 100,000.
Every year, students move in and out of dorm rooms. However, student budget is limited, and it often doesn’t allow moving furniture, books and other belongings all the way back home. Keeping things in local self-storage is more convenient, and many students as well as owners of self-storages know that. That is why in many places with large student population some storage facilities offer discounts specifically for students to help them afford a storage unit.
