When I was searching for a university to study at nowhere grabbed me or excited me the way Strathclyde did, from the quality of the facilities to the opportunities in industry, in my mind there was no other option - it had to be Strathclyde.

Campus life

The Strathclyde campus is a great place to stay for students. We’re based in the heart of Glasgow city centre – Scotland’s largest, and most cosmopolitan, city.

Our campus village offers warm, comfortable and secure accommodation – within five minutes’ walk from all your classes, the Strathclyde Library and a stone’s throw from the city centre’s shops, bars, restaurants and museums.

It's all about Glasgow!

Glasgow is very much the place to be for students. The words of our students speak for themselves!

Glaswegians are the friendliest people I have ever met. I live in the city centre, which is very handy for getting about and meeting people. I’m very glad that I chose to come and study here. Glasgow is home for me now."

Carly Cullen

"Glasgow is the place to be in the UK. The people are so welcoming and so nice and they make you feel comfortable. I know it may sound strange but I also like the weather here!"

Glasgow is a very enjoyable city to live in. It’s small but it has everything you would have in a larger city. For me, the commute (from the west end of the city) is very easy and the living expenses are very low. You also get the chance to mingle with international and local people, which has been very important."

"I'd recommend the Riverside Museum, that's really good and I just love walking along the Clyde and seeing all the bridges and buildings down there."
