From Vita Student Glasgow, it’s a 12-minute walk to campus. Pick up a free grab and go breakfast before you head out the door. When you’re not in class, exploring the rest of the city is equally easy. Rent a bike from the free cycle hire to pedal around town, cross the road to Partick train station, or take a one-minute stroll to your nearest bus stop. Spend an afternoon browsing Cresswell Lane’s vintage boutiques, then head to King Tut’s to experience the electric atmosphere of one of Glasgow’s most iconic music venues.
In between adventures, come home to your fully furnished studio. Swipe your key fob at the door, before collapsing on your double bed in front of the 40-inch flat screen TV. If you’ve got assignments to finish, bounce ideas off your friends in the communal study area, or grab your notes from the bookcase and use the free 250MB Wi-Fi to research facts at your bedroom desk. With contents insurance, 24-hour security, a TV license and a free monthly cleaning service included in your rent, you can concentrate on your work knowing the practicalities are taken care of.
When you’re finished, clear your head with a session in the on-site gym, then take a shower in your private ensuite. In the evening, catch up with your friends by the common room fireplace, cook dinner in the kitchen, or settle in for movie night in the cinema room. If you feel like a night out, try The Sparkle Horse for locally-brewed draught ales; or Hillhead Bookclub for cocktails served in a gramophone.
