Student Pubs in Glasgow

Slightly more laid-back and less fancy than a bar, every student needs a humble pub to call home. Whether you're looking for a place that serves up quality beers, a place with free wi-fi so you can drink and (ahem) 'work' at the same time, or just somewhere to go with friends after a lecture, we've picked some of the best student pubs in Glasgow for you. Just don't forget about that degree you're supposed to be studying for though, yeah?

Dram! (yes, with the exclamation mark) is a bright and airy watering hole with a neighbourhood feel. There's free wi-fi for the study conscious students out there, alongside tasty pub grub and purse-friendly pints, and it's only a few minutes away from Glasgow University.

Inn Deep

A popular destination with beer loving students, Inn Deep is only 10 minutes from uni and specialises in all kinds of quality draughts, bottles and kegs. Not a huge fan of beer? You can still hang out in the outdoor seating area, which right next to the River Kelvin, and chill with a book.
