Excellent university with 2 unions to choose between (GUU is the better one). It has an excellent library with 12 floors and open 24 hours over exam season. If you are a medical student there is even a separate building with a library in it which is great. There are so many clubs and societies to choose between which is great for meeting likeminded people. In terms of nightlife and food, Glasgow has so much choice that it is difficult to try everything. It is such a friendly city and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
