  • The layout of the page very much depends on the document class that you use, as well as on the code before the symbol list. Can you please provide a complete small document that shows the behaviour and that we can compile ourselves?

Enlarge the width of the description. Since the symbol table is centered, the margins will shrink.

\glsdescwidth=9.5cm
\printunsrtglossary[type=symbols,style=long]

enter image description here

The class unbthesis is essentially the same as the report class.

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[symbols,nogroupskip,sort=none]{glossaries-extra}

% Only needed for example
\usepackage{amssymb}
\newcommand{\conv}{\mathrm{conv}}
\newcommand{\core}{\mathrm{core}}
\newcommand{\R}{\mathbb{R}}

\begin{document}
\glsxtrnewsymbol[description={all-ones vector}]{v}{\ensuremath{ \mathbf{1}}}
\glsxtrnewsymbol[description={Euclidean inner product in \ensuremath{ \R^{n}}}]{g}{\ensuremath{ \langle ., . \rangle}}
\glsxtrnewsymbol[description={convex hull of the integer point \ensuremath{z} under the group  \ensuremath{G} }]{G}{\ensuremath{\conv(G_{z})}}
\glsxtrnewsymbol[description={convex hull of the set $S$}]{convS}{\ensuremath{\conv(S)}}
\glsxtrnewsymbol[description={$G$-orbit representatives of the core set of a group $ G $}]{core/G}{\ensuremath{ \core/(G)}}
\glsxtrnewsymbol[description={set of all core points of a group $ G $}]{coreG}{\ensuremath{ \core(G)}}
\glsxtrnewsymbol[description={set of core points of a group $  G$ that are contained in a set $ S$}]{coreGS}{\ensuremath{ \core(G,S)}}
\glsxtrnewsymbol[description={cyclic group of order $ n$}]{Cn}{\ensuremath{ C_{n} }}

\glsdescwidth=9.5cm
\printunsrtglossary[type=symbols,style=long]
\end{document}
