The Glasgow Guardian

The Glasgow Guardian is the multi-award-winning independent newspaper of Glasgow University, and one of the oldest student publications to exist. We publish print editions monthly, and we’ve broken stories that have caught the attention of national press, politicians, and activists, and are made up of a thriving base of talented writers, editors and reporters.

From news coverage to opinion pieces to music reviews to sports commentary, The Glasgow Guardian covers it all. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and check out our social media pages on Facebook (@TheGlasgowGuardian), Instagram (@theglasgowguardian), and Twitter (@glasgowguardian). The paper has an estimated readership of 100,000, and we have a following of approx. 10,000 on Twitter and 5,000+ on Facebook.

All contributors, including the editors, are completely unpaid, yet extremely hardworking, volunteers that will continue to put Glasgow’s students first.
