The Glasgow Guardian is a local, student-led newspaper that publishes every three weeks during term-time (September – June). Based at the University of Glasgow, the paper had an estimated readership of 93,000 in 2009/10.

All contributors, including the editors, are completely unpaid volunteers. This means we can offer you better advertising rates than other locals. It also means you get to support a local indie, not-for-profit publication.

As we are entirely volunteer-led and managed, we do not always have someone in the office during normal hours – so if you would like to speak on the phone, please email your number and someone will get back to you.
