The UK’s third-biggest city, Glasgow is packed with bold architecture from Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Its revitalised riverside is packed with events like the annual Riverside Festival, and lined with impressive buildings like the Zaha Hadid-designed Riverside Museum.
A top-class food and drink scene sprawls across the city, while over in the Pacific Quay you’ll find the headquarters of BBC Scotland and the striking design of the Glasgow Science Museum.

Glasgow nightlife is legendary for its diversity and energetic crowds. It’s not uncommon for visiting DJs to cite it as one of their favourite places.

Our Elgin Place student accommodation is just 10 minutes’ walk from the city centre, within walking distance of the University of Glasgow, Glasgow Caledonian, the University of Strathclyde, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Glasgow School of Art. You will find a gym, amphitheatre and creative studio there, alongside a magnificent city-view roof terrace.
