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?

Hidden amongst the trendy West End bars and clubs, The Belle is a lovely, homely pub on Great Western Road with a welcoming atmosphere. Coffees are dirt cheap and start at just 99p, plus there's free wifi if you want to chill out and study with a sarnie.

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.

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.

Driftwood is a student staple pub with drinks as cheap as chips. Located a hop, skip and a jump away from the Garage and the rest of Sauchiehall Street's favourite student clubs, it's a firm student fave that's always popping off when the sun goes down.

Van Winkle

1 user review 5

Known as one of the best places in Glasgow for BBQ, Van Winkle as placed its steak (get it?) as a top pub in the city. Offering special plates on Wednesday and Thursday nights, this place comes to life with students enjoying discounted bourbon and grilled goodies. 

The Hall

Hall delivers cheap bevvies, scran and all round good times, making it a staple in Glasgow's student scene. Swing by this lively pub and you'll find drinks at rock-bottom prices (perfect for pres) and a menu of hearty burgers, wings and American faves.
