What makes GCU special?
Glasgow Caledonian University is a community. With over 20,000 students it’s not small but it is intimate.
You’ll join students from all over the world – over 100 different countries, in fact. The campus is close-knit, so you’ll find it easy to make friends.
Looking for a place to meet other students and relax? The Student's Association Building is the place to be. On the first floor you'll find the Student Bistro. Here you can share a meal with friends and play a game of pool or table football together.
The campus is just a 10-minute walk to Glasgow city centre. You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to food. When you want to stay on campus, there are three cafes for you to refuel with snacks and coffee.
