Student Pubs in Glasgow

Slightly more laid-back and less fancy than a bar, every student needs a humble pub to call home. And let's face it, Glasgow's students know a thing or two when it comes to kicking back and enjoying the uni lifestyle, so finding your favourite Glasgow student pub is a must. 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?

Sorry, the places listed below don't have online bookings available, but we hope you still find this list useful for your night out!

Driftwood is a student staple pub with drinks as cheap as 89p. Yikes. That's almost cheaper than a bottle of water. What do they put in them? This pub is loud and always rammed with students due to its location - a hop, skip and a jump away from the Garage and the rest of Sauchiehall Street's favourite student clubs. If you're a student, you'll almost definitely end up at this pub simply because Driftwood makes it very easy to get merry on a fiver.

Dram!

2 user reviews

Following a complete revamp a couple of years ago, Dram! (yes, with the exclamation mark) has been transformed from a slightly dingy pub to a bright and airy watering hole. Friendly staff on hand to serving up pub grub and beer, there's free wi-fi for the study conscious students out there, and it's only a few minutes away from Glasgow University. And it has a really cool name too, making it a very memorable student pub in Glasgow.

The Belle

2 user reviews

Hidden amongst the trendy West End bars and clubs, The Belle is a lovely, homely pub on Great Western Road with a truly welcoming atmosphere. Located just down the road from Glasgow University, The Belle is perfectly placed for students. Coffees start from 99p during the day and there's free wifi if you want to chill out and lay off the booze. This pub gets very busy during weekends and evenings though, so make sure you're there early to save a seat. A seriously cool and charming student pub in Glasgow.
