University of Strathclyde

University of Strathclyde, George Street 50, G1 1QE Glasgow, United Kingdom
3.90 / 5 based on 294 reviews.
Description:
The University of Strathclyde was founded in 1796 as Anderson's Institution. From its foundation the University was different from the other, much older, universities in Britain; it aimed at a wider range of students and a broader variety of subjects, especially those concerned with 'useful learning'.

The University of Strathclyde has two campuses: the John Anderson Campus in the centre of Glasgow, where the Faculties of Arts and Social Sciences, Engineering, Science and the Strathclyde Business School are located, and the Jordanhill Campus, with our Faculty of Education, in the west end of the city.

STUDENT LIFE    
by REBECCA, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA, United States
Social Sciences, University Agreement
Personal social experience
Activities
KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students interact with the local community without much university involvement
Nightlife, Travel: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Activities: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Avoid Jumping Jaks like the plague, although it can be tempting with the a free bus to take you there and free champagne at the door. But its trashy as hell. For clubs: I like ABC (good indie gigs, good music, huge venue) on Suchiehall St. especially on Thursdays/Fridays, Buff Club (good DJ's, great atmosphere)on Suchiehall Lane specially on a Sunday, Art School on Renfrew St. for very cheap Saturday nights, and of course the Strathclyde Union (great theme nights, so close). The Garage is good for a drunk cheesy laugh, especially on Sunday/Monday nights. Use Be-lo in moderation...there's a lot of shady people there and the scene can get old. But good on a Wednesday. Basically you could go out every night and have an amazing time. Be sure to check out Ashton Lane in W. End too...like Wodka Vodka. For PUBS: Nice n'Sleazy's has great open mic nights on Mondays. I also really like Bunker, Revolution, 13th Note, Bloc, Kushion, Stavka, Underworld. Check them out. Very good night.
