Glasgow University Students' Representative Council was founded on 9 March 1886 and recognised as the legal representative body for students of the University of Glasgow by the Universities (Scotland) Act 1889. The SRC is responsible for representing students' interests to the management of the University and to local and national government, and for health and welfare issues. Under the Universities (Scotland) Acts, all students of the University automatically become members of the SRC, however they are entitled to opt out of this. Unlike at other Scottish universities, the SRC plays a limited role in the social lives of students, those being the purview of the Glasgow University Union (GUU) and the Queen Margaret Union (QMU), although it does organise RAG (Raising And Giving) Week and SHaG (Sexual Health at Glasgow) Week, as well as funding some one hundred clubs and societies. Since 1968, all of the SRC's offices have been located in the John McIntyre Building on University Avenue.

“I havent seen so much tippy-toeing around since the last time I went to the ballet. When members of the arts community were asked this week about one of their biggest benefactors, Philip Morris, and its requests that they lobby the New York City Council on the companys behalf, the pas de deux of self- justification was so painstakingly choreographed that it constituted a performance all by itself.”
—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
“...America has enjoyed the doubtful blessing of a single-track mind. We are able to accommodate, at a time, only one national hero; and we demand that that hero shall be uniform and invincible. As a literate people we are preoccupied, neither with the race nor the individual, but with the type. Yesterday, we romanticized the tough guy; today, we are romanticizing the underprivileged, tough or tender; tomorrow, we shall begin to romanticize the pure primitive.”
—Ellen Glasgow (18731945)
“The most important function of the university in an age of reason is to protect reason from itself.”
—Allan Bloom (19301992)
