From Queen in the 70s and Nirvana and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers in the early 90s, to Sigala, Dillinger Escape Plan and, most recently, Prides, the QMU’s very own Qudos is no stranger to welcoming a diverse range of familiar names to its stage, and with a capacity of 900 including a balcony and spacious standing area, we’re proud to say that Glasgow Uni’s campus is home to a great venue which still has plenty to offer. Here are a list of live events to watch out for in the near future!
Want to get to know your new home city but spent all your student loan during freshers? Determined not to stay in the West End bubble for your four years at uni?

The Freshers Have Landed! At qmunicate, we are excited to welcome you to this exciting time in your life, and we decided to get to know you by asking what you were most excited about coming to university. Here were your responses:
So, Freshers’ Week is over, and you’re sitting in your room nursing a hangover and wondering if you’ll ever get through that 5kg bag of macaroni that your mum bought you the day you moved into halls. Perhaps you’re staring at a collection of grubby traffic cones that you and your new flatmates liberated from University Avenue over the course of the week; perhaps you’re already nose-deep in your first textbook of the year. Perhaps you’re suddenly conscious of the fact you don’t enjoy your flatmate’s nearby guitar noodling as much as you thought you did. But anyway, hangover aside, you sit and think “Did I enjoy Freshers’ Week?”
If there’s one place that’s buzzing with music, it’s Glasgow. Music runs in this city’s veins, everywhere from the fact that it hosts a staggering 130 gigs on average per week to the more tangible experience of being invited to Facebook events every month because half a dozen of your pals just happen to be in local bands.
There’s a lot of films on the horizon this year and hell, some of them might even be good. Here’s qmunicate’s top 10 picks of the next semester’s worth of blockbuster delights.
