Conferencing & Events Why Strathclyde for your event?

At Strathclyde, we offer the perfect location and venue to host your event. Our new Technology & Innovation Centre boasts some of the most modern, flexible conferencing facilities in the city. The Victorian grandeur of the Barony Hall offers a beautiful contrast – a stunning backdrop for a variety of events, including gala dinners, evening receptions and weddings.

Perfect location

We're based in the heart of Glasgow city centre.

The University is a hop, skip and a jump from George Square, the Merchant City and Buchanan Street, one of the UK's top shopping destinations. We're a 15-minute walk from Glasgow Central Station and five minutes from Queen Street Station. The University is situated close to Glasgow Cathedral, the birthplace of the city, and the fascinating Glasgow Necropolis, which offers some of the most stunning views of our city.
