Change gradle build directory in android studio?

I just installed Android Studio and I am just learning to build using Gradle. However, with the default project setup, my builds are located in the project directory and I would like to have them placed elsewhere (preferably outside of the project directory). Is it possible to achieve this? Where do I make a change and what change do I make?


  • in root build.gradle

    allprojects {
        buildDir = "/path/to/build/${}/${}"

    See also Gradle global build directory
