I found the university buildings very clinical,angular and modern looking compared to the characteristic Victorian style buildings of Glasgow. Surprisingly it seems to work and new mixes well with old. The campus buildings are on the other side of Buchannan Street Bus Station.

Basic group apartments with slightly more comfortable than usual beds. Not the cleanest dorm setting but if you need supplies to do it yourself, the cleaning staff are easily found taking breaks on the benches. If you stay longer than a week they will change your sheets once and towels twice. They show up once to wipe the sinks in... More

Caledonian University is my favorite university in Glasgow. Student facilities are great, excellent staff, great libraries and lounge places, no wonder this university was ranked 2nd in the UK for international student satisfaction. I especially love student association building.

The uni is fab and in an excellent location, it's directly across from Buchanan bus station, a 5 minute walk from queen street station and a ten minute walk from central station. There are lots of cafes on site, about 1 in every building. They are pretty cheap and offer a wide range of foods and drinks throughout the day.... More

Enjoyed my time here as a mature student and found the course interesting. I would recommend return to study to anyone who wants to change direction. I had be made redundant and found the challenge of going back into education stimulating, interesting and it made it easier to find work.

Although buildings seem modern and nice from exterior, but I didn't see anything special inside. A good thing is that all the buildings of uni are in one place, so students do not need to travel. But that shouldn't be the main benefit of uni
