Students playing pool at INTO GCU

Campus life at INTO GCU

Everything you need on campus

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is minutes away from the city centre, but you’ll still find all the essentials on campus. If you’re looking for fun, head to the Student’s Association building. Here you can play a game of pool and have lunch with your new friends in the Bistro. Or, sign up one of the University’s clubs and societies.

For moments where you want calm reflection or prayer, the Faith and Belief Centre is the place to be. When you’re looking for a place to relax with friends, you can choose from three coffee shops on campus. Want to burn off some extra calories? The Arc Sports Centre is just a few minutes’ walk from the main University buildings.

The University is committed to providing an inclusive student experience for all students. If you have a disability, the Disability Team on campus are there to support you. Visit them on campus if you need help with anything.

Global faith support

With students from over 100 countries, you’ll find faith communities on campus no matter what your beliefs. Volunteer chaplains are there to support your spiritual wellbeing and provide guidance and support through your studies.

The Faith and Belief Centre in the William Harley Building runs events throughout the year. You can use the space for one-off meetings, meet friends or enjoy a calm moment of meditation or prayer. You’ll also find a kitchen, a projector, a sound system and a piano to use.

Sport for everyone

What's your favourite sport? At GCU, you’ll be able to take your pick of 35 sports clubs and societies, ranging from boxing and fencing to martial arts and mountaineering. Glasgow’s great location means you’ll also be able to enjoy snow sports in the winter.

Just a few minutes’ walk away from campus, you’ll find the Arc Sports Centre. The Centre caters for all fitness levels and interests. There are two gyms you can use here, with cardio and weights equipment. You’ll also find sports halls to hire for playing badminton and basketball, as well as a dance studio.
