Student life

Everyone needs a break from studying and you’ll find plenty of fun things to do day and night at the University. The University offers many opportunities to get involved in student life.

Glasgow has four separate student organisations, rather than a traditional student association, meaning there are elected students focusing on a variety of services and representation for their fellow students. There’s the Students’ Representative Council (SRC), to social student unions and a dedicated sports association. In addition we have over 100 clubs and societies and six student media outlets on campus.
