Student Article - Battlefield/Shawlands
Author: Liam Mccreath
The area of Battlefield/Shawlands is a great area for students. Having Langside college no more than 10 minute walk away is great! But it also has a great atmosphere. I myself used to work in Alldays on Battlefield Road and enjoyed it until they closed us down and I have moved to working in shawlands, The mission pub is great for students it offers low price meals and drink, of course. But if that isnt your kinda lunch, then you have greggs a few doors down, Mr. V's Chip shop further down and the Co-Op round the corner! There are alot of flats above the shops on battlefield road and around shawlands, especially on Kilmarnock and Pollockshaws Road.

Shawlands has 2 main supermarkets, Co-Op and Somerfield in the Arcade! It also has alot of pubs and clubs such as The Cell, The Shed and The Corona and The Tea Rooms for those wild but cheap student nights out. You have Victoria Infirmary 2 minutes over the hill and Queens Park near you, what else do you need?

You are looking at paying between 200 and 500 for a flat in either Battlefield or Shawlands, but its definetly worth it for a good area in safe and welcoming surroundings.
