Student Accommodation

  • Liberty House (Liberty Living) houses most of the conservatoire's new students. Accommodation is allocated on a first-come-first-served basis with application forms sent out to students with offers at Easter. Students should not apply directly to Liberty House.
  • Students can also access the Private Accommodation Database (PAD) which is administered by Glasgow's higher education institutions.

Student Life

Nightlife and Culture

  • A former European City of Culture, Glasgow offers a rich arts culture with numerous museums, galleries, theatres and creative hubs located around the city – and most museums are free to enter.

Travel

  • Located in the heart of central Scotland, Glasgow is easy to travel to, with two international airports and train stations offering connections to the rest of the world.
  • Students will find it easy and inexpensive to get around Glasgow. The city centre is small and compact – it's possible to walk from one end to the other in less than an hour. Transport links are excellent, and the famous Glasgow subway gets passengers around the city quickly for a low cost. Most students walk or cycle to the conservatoire, and Glasgow has a city-wide bike hire scheme.
  • Further afield, travel from Glasgow to London take a little over 1 hour by plane, Edinburgh is a 50-minute train ride away and Manchester is a 3-hour drive. The national park of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs is within a 45-minute drive of the city centre, with the breathtaking Highlands and Islands beyond.
