Yesterday I found out that I will officially study at University of Glasgow. I will probably choose private accommodation, a property from UNITE-STUDENTS (Buchanan View * 35 Calgary Street, Glasgow or Kelvin Court * 30 Yorkhill Street, Glasgow) and I've got a little question: I have no idea how to cook, does someone know where to find a canteen / cafeteria around? Something like a buffet, which gives you the opportunity to choose from a variety of food.
I've also thought about Wolfson Hall, which has full breakfast and dinner included, but it's a little bit expensive, around 156 pounds per week.
Thank you very much!

Alright so it doesn't matter whether I live in QM union or not. Anyone can go there, right?
I dont wanna waste my time on cooking as well so there is a letter that I received :
The university itself has a hospitality service that has a number of cafés dotted about over the campus- in the library, in the MVLS college, and at other main locations. You can get hot food/ main meals in some of the bigger canteens, and things like sandwiches, soup, fruit, tea and coffee etc. in the smaller ones. Prices are reasonable- roughly £3.50 for a hot main meal; £1.60 for soup and a roll; about a £1 for a cup of tea or coffee. Here is a link for you to read a bit more:http://www.gla.ac.uk/services/hospitality/forstudents/
On top of that, the two student unions have eating facilities, which are both located on campus. They are both also very reasonably priced, and serve hot and cold meals and snacks.
Here are the links for the two unions' eating facilities:
Finally, the university is less than only a 5 minute walk away from a whole host of cafés, restaurants and supermarkets on Byers Road and Great Western Road that provide food throughout the day (and night! There are a number of 24 hour shops.) for a whole range of prices. Student favorites in Glasgow are Subway for a cheap, freshly-made baguette, or Ketchup- a burger joint that has student meals 2-for-1 everyday, so you can enjoy a large Scottish Venison, haggis, or a regular beef burger for an average of £5.00!
HOPE IT HELPS
