Step out of your front door, straight into the big city buzz. Set your watch by the gigantic clock above the Grand Central Hotel, then climb the spiral staircase to the top of The Lighthouse and look out over the city. Browse the world-class shops at Princes Square Shopping Centre, and take a riverside walk past the South Portland Street Suspension Bridge to Glasgow Green, the historic public park. Enjoy the city’s best club nights at The Centre for Contemporary Arts — many of them are free.
You’re seconds from the city centre, where Glasgow’s public transport system makes it easy to get to class. It’s a 12-minute subway ride to Glasgow University, and you can walk to both Caledonian and Strathclyde universities in less than 15 minutes. You’re right next to Glasgow Central Station, so it’s easy to take a trip to Edinburgh or travel further afield.
Central House is a modern building with lots of space to socialise with your new friends — eat breakfast on the terrace, then work together in the study space. Take a break and perfect your game of pool in the entertainment room or work up a sweat in the on-site gym. The lounge area has two flat screen TVs with cable, so you can watch your favourite shows in comfort. Back in your room, cook up a storm in your fully-equipped kitchen, hit the books in your comfortable study area and use the free Wi-Fi to Skype your family. You’ve got a private bathroom, so you can enjoy a long hot shower whenever you like.
It’s easy to budget because all bills are included in your rent, and there are on-site laundry facilities so you won’t run out of clean clothes. There’s a cheap supermarket right across the road, and a great choice of restaurants nearby, from big-name chains to independent eateries. Try The Chippy Doon the Lane for the fried food that Glasgow is famous for — are you brave enough to try the Black Pudding Supper?
