We are exclusively run by UofG mature students, for UofG mature students.
Are you 21+ at the start of your program? Then you are a mature student!
So why join the MSA?
We have a wide range of facilities to offer: quiet study space, a computer room with PCs on the University network, Wi-Fi throughout the building, cheap printing, a group study room, lockers, a lounge and kitchen facilities for heating and preparing meals, and very cheap hot drinks! Since 2022 we have also created a community pantry so none of our members ever have to struggle.
The building can also be accessed 24/7, which can be a great asset if you find studying at home difficult, or simply don’t have personal internet, especially around deadline/exam time.
The MSA is a very supportive environment – you will always find other mature students studying similar courses and who probably have similar life circumstances and experiences. We also have a dedicated Welfare Officer as part of our Team who will be on hand for a chat or to point you in the right direction if you need support, deadlines are piling up, or you just need to vent.
So, whether you’re looking for new friends, study partners, or simply the reassurance of knowing you’re not the only mature student at the University, all can be found here!
Membership is only £10 per year. We have an enthusiastic and very active committee, who are approachable and helpful. Committee members are elected annually, so if you have the drive to be involved put your name forward for a position.
