The University is in the heart of the West End close to many pubs, cafes and restaurants and there should be ample opportunity to explore them. Ashton Lane and Byres Road are good starting points.

Byres Road next to the University and a few minutes walk from the Kelvin Building, has several shops, supermarkets, banks/ATMs, pharmacy, places to eat and drink and Hillhead subway station.

Argyle St heads into the city centre but along it close to Cairncross House there are several places to eat, drink as well as local shops (tesco metro etc).

The city centre (just a 15min subway journey away) contains many more places to eat, drink, shop and explore. Here is a map [pdf] of places of interest in the west end and city centre. More information is available on the see glasgow website.
