Most helpful review

Glasgow is a great city for those creatively inclined. You can usually find a part time job to hold you over while you study and the night life is usually on 5 out of 7 days a week and is always eventful. Depending on what area you live in the rent will differ but the cheaper options tend to be just as well kept if not better than some of the more pricey west end flats. The people are nice but like most cities it has its vices but nothing on a level that will ruin your experience here or that will be noticeable for anyone not looking for them. The bad rep that Glasgow has is starting to soften and rightly so, it feels very much like the city is entering a new age but what that will be like no one can say.

Living in Glasgow

Glasgow, the home of Scottish engineering, Irn Bru and three universities. Glasgow Caledonian University, the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde are all based here.

Scotland is pretty well known for it’s cold weather but if you like to take a more active role in your sport then the Great Scottish Run, the third largest of its kind, takes place at the end of the summer. An Ice Rink is set up every year during the Christmas holidays for the public to skate on, so even in the winter there’s no excuse for missing out and staying indoors! Beginners can still take part, as there are Ice Marshals on hand to help you get started.  Glasgow is the home of Celtic Football Club. Or Rangers, if you prefer. In fact there are three professional football clubs based in Glasgow, as well as Scotland’s only professional basketball team, the Glasgow Rocks.  You’re also quite near to the coast, with Glasgow Port only 30mins away by train, and Loch Lomond (yes, the one from the song) only 40mins via Balloch station.

When exploring the town, it’s worth sparing a few hours to explore ‘The Barras’ market in the East End of Glasgow. This historic flea market (officially called ‘Barrowland’, and you’ll find the old Barrowland Ballroom next to it) is a slice of proper Glaswegian history, and you can still dig out a bargain amid the stalls and market traders you’ll find there. Just a few streets over is Glickman’s, the oldest sweet shop in Glasgow.

For the rest of your retail therapy needs, the majority of high street stores can be found around Sauchiehall Street, in the city centre. For independent shops, vintage outlets, and boutiques, go to the West End. Alternatively head south towards the river and you’ll find the Enoch Centre, which is a little more upmarket, and then the Argyle Arcade and Princes Square nearby. These last two are probably a bit high-brow for someone on a student budget, but who doesn’t love a bit of window shopping?

A must-do (or at least must-try) for Glasgow students is the Subcrawl. This involves buying an all-day Discovery ticket for the Subway and visiting the nearest pub or bar you can find at each of the fifteen stops. After a drink, it’s back on the subway and on to the next station. It’s very rare for any student to actually finish the circuit, which is marked by drinking in the same pub you started in, but the fun is in the attempt so for goodness’ sakes pace yourself!

Whether you’re living on campus or de-camped into a house in town, if you happen to come back early after your summer holidays , you’ll be just in time to catch that essential blast of Scottish culture, the World Pipe Band Championships. Take your mates along and see who can hold out the longest!

Out on the town:

  • Sauchiehall Street is the main student nightlife zone, and a good place to start if you’re new to the Glasgow. Venues like The Garage, Nice n Sleazy, and Firewater cater to different musical tastes, while Campus, an American Frat House style venue, also opens in daylight hours to show all the major football matches on their big screens.
  • Bath Street has a higher number of young professionals and bars, so when you feel you’ve outgrown the typical student hangouts, you haven’t got far to go to add a more sophisticated flavour to your social life.
  • The Curlers Rest: This pub is 600 years old and looking very good for its age. Nice enough to convince your mum that yes you are eating properly, but not beyond the limits of the student budget. Book in advance at busy times.

Good to know:

  • Subway: Glasgow’s very own subway circles the city centre and west end, so if you find yourself heading there a lot, use your degree-level mathematics to work out if it’s worth investing in one of their multi-journey tickets
  • Taxi: Black cabs run in the city centre and round the campuses. For pre-booked, try Glasgow Taxis Ltd.

If you like shopping and nightlife, then first to London, then Glasgow. If you like a peaceful place to live, I think, it is Glasgow, except for Edinburgh in April.

Everything is near here, especially when you live in the city centre of Glasgow. But the rental here is expensive, and the student accomadation (Eg: Student roost) keep increasing their rental every year.

Glasgow might be a low-cost city to live compared to London. However, it is not cheap. My monthly spending could be up to 2000 pounds. Many bars are opening at night. Many choices of shopping can found in the city centre.

The cost of living in Glasgow is actually quite high. The price is a little higher than that of other cities except London. But the Scots are really good. Most of them are really friendly. Apart from the slightly higher consumption, the other experience of living here is good, whether it is eating, transportation or shopping. All in all, coming to Glasgow is not to be regretted

Had a flat with a friend in Glasgow after my first semester in the student accommodation. I enjoyed the city a lot and it is super easy getting to Paisley (10min train to central, 10min train to Gilmour Street). Great place to stay for me.

My accommodation was a costly one, but with little efforts, one can find cheaper options. I liked the warmth of the people of Glasgow and was amazed with the freedom and night life. Things are cheaper if they could be searched and eating out gives a lot of varieties. Weather is a bit of concern, but appropriate clothing can prevent getting too bothered by it. Travel to nearby tourist spots like Loch Lomond and Loch Ness is a must for any visitor of Glasgow.

Glasgow is a fantastic place to live as a student. Lot's of diffrent areas to live in so you can find what works best for your budget and great public transport (aside from the buses being kinda expensive). There's always something going on at a night so if you live close enough to the city centere you'll never be bored in the evening. Lots of options for grocery shopping though it's all well spread out so getting one of those old lady shopping trolleys wont hurt ya.

Utterly superb city to study in. Easily walkable with a fantastic Subway system, diverse array of boroughs and areas, endless array of food and drink places, Kelvingrove/Pollok Park provide wonderful green space, easily navigable city centre with every shop you could need. Nightlife is second to none - relaxed, friendly, superior bookings and venues. And when this all gets too much then the tourist trail of Edinburgh or the rural delights of the highlands are both less than an hour away. Just invest in some good coats!

Glasgow is AMAZING. It's got to be the best place in Scotland for students. So many deals for students in clubs and restaurants, it's definitely the right choice.

The city for everyone's taste! Cheaper than London, Manchester and Liverpool but on the same level of entertainment. Since I have discovered its night life, I haven't seen much of the sun!

Cheap to live in, with a lot for your money. Not very many down trodden student places - mostly vast Victorian buildings, with huge rooms (perfect for big parties). I really cannot emphasise enough how amazing the nightlife is in Glasgow! It has something for all tastes. You cannot talk about nightlife in Glasgow without mentioning Sub Club, even if it isn't your scene. It is the oldest sub culture club in Europe, quite possibly the world. Drawing in the biggest DJs on a monthly basis, as well as having two very high standard resident DJs - who on their own right are renowned world wide.

Depending on location, living can be relativity cheap for such a huge city. Restaurant and bars are amoung the best and highest rated in the country. Shopping... Well Glasgow is the 2nd best place for shopping in the whole UK (London being 1st).
