    Hi folks,

    I am starting at the Riverside Campus with Glasgow College, and will be staying here too. One thing I am concerned about is where to leave my car whilst I am here (the college has no spaces). I stay north of Aberdeen at the minute in a quiet village so the city life will be new to me. I can imagine some people will just say no need for the car which is understandable, but as I'm paying for the car monthly I want to make use of it in my spare time, and it will be handy for driving out of Glasgow if need be. I will still be visiting home every few weekends so will leave the car at home sometimes and train the journey down, but as I say any recommendations for a safe area/street would be appreciated. I have heard about some of the rougher areas which are relatively close to the campus (Gorbals etc). I don't mind it being parked a bit away if safer.

    Thanks, any information would be helpful.
