Over the coming months, we're installing a new heat and power system on campus, cutting our carbon emissions in half. While we're really excited about this, it will have a small impact throughout graduations.
Here's what you need to know:
Work will start on John Street on 19 June 2017. If you're travelling by car, this means you'll need to access the University Centre (where you'll collect your gown) via Martha Street. You'll still be able to access John Street on foot.
Fly into Glasgow International Airport with a wide range of airlines, including British Airways, Easyjet and Flybe. Ryanair operates flights from Prestwick International Airport, which is around 30 miles from the city centre. Many airlines also fly into Edinburgh Airport.
First 500 Glasgow Shuttle bus departs from Stance 1 approximately every 10 minutes for Buchanan Street Bus Station. This is the closest stop to our campus. It's about a 10 minute walk.
There’s two main national railway stations in the centre of Glasgow – Glasgow Central and Queen Street.
There are direct trains from Glasgow Central to London Euston and trains via Edinburgh to London Kings Cross. The direct service takes around 4 hours 30 minutes.
Queen Street station serves the east and north of Scotland (Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee, Stirling and notably a service to Edinburgh every fifteen minutes.) Some trains to/from Edinburgh arrive at Central Station which serves the east and south.
From Queen Street Railway Station our campus is a 15 minute walk or around £6 in a taxi. From Central Railway Station it’s about a 20 minute walk or around £7 in a taxi.
You can find information on train times the National Rail website. The cost of travelling by train can be reduced by booking in advance - and by making the most of the savings offered by a Student Railcard.
From the south (M74/M73) or the north (M80), join the M8 (Glasgow). Leave it at junction 15, signposted Cathedral, go straight ahead on Stirling Road to the T–junction, and turn left into Cathedral Street.
There is some parking at the University for visitors and there are also many public car parks in the city centre.
Because of our city centre location, there is no reserved parking on campus. It may be possible to arrange parking in the University car park. If you would like to do this, please call +44 (0) 141 548 3333.
Parking in the city centre
There are plenty of car parks throughout Glasgow city centre ranging in price depending on location and security. The National Car Park in Montrose Street is closest to the campus and the Buchanan Galleries multi-storey car park is just a five minute walk away.
You can sail from Belfast and Larne in Northern Irleand to Cairnryan on the west coast of Scotland. From Cairnryan the drive is approximately two hours to Glasgow. Take the A77.
