Student Club Nights in Glasgow
Glasgow's student population is a force to be reckoned with. With four universities within 10 miles of the city centre alone, this is one of the liveliest places to party for students in the whole of the UK. Whether you're looking to live it up on the cheap or going for something a little different, Glasgow's student nightlife has a little something for everyone. Here's a selection of our favourite student club nights in Glasgow well worth looking out for.

What's a student night in Glasgow without a visit to the student flat of Sauchiehall Street? The venue is decked out in weird 70s flat decor, the bar serves drinks like Frosty Jacks and Cherry Lambrini (so just like your pre-drinks) and every night is about fun. Whether they throw out infalatables during a club night or they rock it on their live music MILK night, it's cheap, cheerful and so very student at Flat 0/1.
Juicy Tuesdays is Kushion's flagship student night. This massive student night has been running for over five years and shows no signs of slowing down yet. Cheap drinks, top tunes and a real party atmosphere - what's not to like? We just hope you don't have any 9am lectures on a Wednesday.
Sub Rosa at Sub Club is a hot little club night for undergrad ravers in Glasgow. Stylish students and discerning dance heads bust a move to a midweek house and techno party. Not your average messy student venue, this is a night for eager beaver clubbing undergrads who are serious about their tunes.
Whoever says you can’t be a VIP and an undergrad is straight-up lying. Bringing stylish vibes to Glasgow’s student scene, Sugar Cube offers you a glamorous party without having to empty your pockets. Rendez-vous is one of the best student club nights in Glasgow and it’s free before midnight, with drinks promos and two rooms of music spanning RnB, chart and house tunes.
No money? No excuses when it comes to Bamboo. Going big across their three basement rooms, five nights a week, come here if you’re into an eclectic music policy and ridiculously cheap drink deals. The booze starts from ludicrously cheap on Saturdays (get in before 11pm if you want free entry) and Get Loose Fridays offers free entry to students all night long.
No Way you’ve got the cash to go out? Think again. The Shimmy Club’s midweek student night offers undergrads the chance go to big on small funds; discounted drinks and entry means you could even come home with change from a tenner. Get along for an unadulterated night of R&B, chart bangers and hip-hop tunes all night long.
Glasgow’s original rock nightclub is Cathouse, a venue which hosts 5 different club nights throughout the week. Sure - there’s a focus on classic rock and metal - but the nightclub hosts different themed events throughout the week so there’s always a little something for everyone. Get yourself a wristband for exclusive discounts at the bar and check out Unholy Thursdays for the full Cathouse experience, when entry is discounted with an NUS card and the playlist features a mix of metal, punk and rock.
Glasgow's very own frat house, Campus feeds and waters the student masses in Glasgow. With fun events every night of the week, there's always something on to occupy the undergrads. 1/2 yard cocktails give club night drinking a quirky twist, while the Route 66 decor give punters the full US college experience.
The Garage knows how to bring the party seven nights a week. And no one can hold the pace midweek like a student. Among The Garage's fun party nights is Neverland, the kind of night where you never have to grow up - can anyone say bouncy castle? - with cracking drinks promos and crazed tunes, there's a reason this place is the most popular student club in Glasgow.
Fun fact: 25,000 people attend Propaganda every week at their parties around the world. Safe to say, then, that these guys know their way around an awesome student party. Taking place every Friday from the O2 ABC, students can dance long and deep into the night to a mix of current and classic indie tunes that you can’t help but sing-a-long too. The drink deals are quite something too.
