Drop-Ins: Wednesdays, 2.00pm, Fraser Building. We meet in the food area of the HUB and take one of the big wooden tables next to the windows which are at the right hand side of the room as you walk in. These 'drop-in' meets are simply for any member to drop by for a chat about anything! We can offer advice and answer any questions you might have at these meet ups, and we also discuss and organise fundraising ideas and dinners etc. at them.

The UK Vegan Society defines veganism as "a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude - as far as is possible and practical - all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment."

The Vegan Society of the University of Glasgow was formed by staff of the University in 2006 after successfully encouraging Hospitality Services to provide vegan food options during the University's first Diversity Week. The University's catering service now provides vegan food every day. Glasgow was the first University to achieve accreditation from the UK Vegan Society through its "Sunflower Standard" Scheme.

Hospitality Services' main venue The Brasserie at 1A The Square (OATS) is open to the general public. The refurbished Hub, opened in 2008 as the Fraser Building, has similar vegan provision. More information is available at Vegan Food @ University of Glasgow.

We continue to champion vegan causes in the University - see our aims section.

VSUG is open to staff and students of the University. We welcome vegans, aspiring vegans, supporters of veganism and animal welfare, and supporters of the provision of vegan food.
