Our campuses

GCU is located in a modern purpose-built campus in the heart of Glasgow’s city centre. The Saltire Centre is the hub of student life and the centerpiece of the University’s Glasgow Campus. The £23m futuristic learning centre houses the University’s entire library collection, the majority of student support services, over 1800 study spaces, a learning café, and a ground-floor mall.

There's never a shortage of things to do in Glasgow with pubs, restaurants, bars and clubs on every corner. Football plays a large part in Glasgow life, with rivals Rangers and Celtic dominating the Scottish Premier League and sporting conversation, and the city has at least one festival every month celebrating things from film to comedy.
