Welcome to Hamilton Hub

A former office block in Birkenhead is being refurbished and transformed into a new student complex with studios and en suite apartments fit for modern-day university living. A wealth of communal facilities are on offer in this collaborative project between YPG and Wirral Council. In an area lacking in adequate student accommodation, at least 200 tenants will have access to a gym and communal lounge that are built around a central secret garden.

Hamilton Hub offers cheaper accommodation than that available on the other side of the River Mersey, but most of the apartments still have outstanding views of Liverpool’s waterfront which is just a short train ride away.

Furthermore, Hamilton Hub sits beside the Georgian architecture of the historic Hamilton Square which has rail links to major universities and colleges as well as the city of Chester.

Student Property Investment

Hamilton Hub offers 142 studios and 58 en suite pods which are all fully furnished to the highest quality. Tenants pay an “all-in” price, which includes all bills in their rent, as well as super-fast broadband, for a simple and all-inclusive fee.

Whilst promoting a seamless student living experience, a 24/7 management team provides investors with a buy-to-let property investment with an assured rental return. Alternatively, investors can choose to self-manage their property should they choose to.

 Development Overview :

  • Studio & En Suite Pods From 45000 GBP
  • 8% Net Rental Return Assured for 5 Years
  • Located 5 minutes from Liverpool Central Station
  • Experienced Developer YPG
  • Located Next to Billion Pound Wirral Waters
  • Regeneration Scheme

 Hamilton Square

Hamilton Hub is situated just a 4 minute walk away from the characteristic Hamilton Square. Beautiful buildings of historic Georgian style line the streets surrounding the expansive public square where the community can mix and mingle. Perfectly suited to students seeking a spot of down time, they can stroll along the landscaped paths and study amongst the peaceful greenery of the communal garden during Merseyside’s warm summers.

The square is surrounded by a selection of pubs, restaurants and shops just seconds outside Hamilton Hub’s door. Just a further 10 minutes by foot, students can reach Birkenhead’s town centre which has everything from House of Fraser to an ASDA superstore and Pyramids Shopping Centre to ensure students can meet their practical needs whilst also indulging in a bit of retail therapy.

Additionally, Hamilton Square Station is only 5 minutes from the student development, providing easy transport links by rail to other destinations on the Wirral and over the water in Liverpool city centre. Liverpool James Street is only a 3 minute journey on Merseyrail and Liverpool Central can be reached in a further 2 minutes.


Tenants at Hamilton Hub can travel to the famous city of Chester in just 35 minutes by train or via a half-hour car journey. Steeped in Roman history, Chester boasts a medieval fortress and Roman walls as well as the largest remaining Roman amphitheatre. 

Arguably the richest UK city in terms of architectural treasures, a walk-through Chester’s city centre is like taking a step back in time. Its 1,000-year-old cathedral is renowned for its beauty and skilled design. For a more modern-day experience, Chester has several designer shops and even a Racecourse to visit and explore.


 Although on the other side of the River Mersey, the city of Liverpool is more than accessible from the student accommodation at Hamilton Hub. In fact, it’s closeness is apparent from the extraordinary views of the monumental waterfront visible from Hamilton Hub’s apartments.

Tenants can hop on the train at the nearby Hamilton Square Station and arrive at Liverpool Central Station in just 5 minutes. From the lively bars in RopeWalks and the Baltic Triangle to the £960 million Liverpool ONE shopping complex, there is plenty to see and do in this dynamic northern hotspot just a stone’s throw away from this cutting-edge student development.

Why Invest in Birkenhead?

10th Hottest UK Property Market
Hamilton Hub is located in Birkenhead, an area deemed the 10th best property market in the UK according to a recent article by the Telegraph. Its situation on the left bank of the River Mersey means that it’s just a short walk to the UK’s largest regeneration project at Wirral Waters. Developed by the Peel Group, the docklands zone is proposed to mirror Liverpool’s impressive waterfront renovation plans.

Wirral Waters Regeneration
The flagship billion-pound project will take place over 20 million square foot of land and will create 20,000 permanent jobs. The multi-use destination will house 13,000 new homes as well as extensive office spaces, and is also home to a brand-new Wirral Met College campus just minutes away from Hamilton Hub.

Key players have come together in the proposal for a £20 million Maritime Knowledge Hub which should be complete by 2020. Mersey Maritime, Liverpool John Moores University, Wirral Council and Wirral Waters are working collaboratively to produce an innovative centre for maritime and marine study.

Leading the Way for Student Living

The experienced developer of Hamilton Hub, YPG, is also helping to kick-start regeneration on the Wirral with the construction of one of the first superior student accommodations in the area.

Hamilton Hub apartments will take advantage of the many colleges and universities in its peripheries, with a total student population in the surrounding areas amounting to almost 100,000.
