Glasgow university is one of the oldest in the U.K. The Memorial Chapel and the Hunterian Museum are well worth a visit. The position of the Uni on Gilmorehill offers spectacular views to the west and south. Guided tours are available.

Having worked there for 10 years I am probably biased. The main part has great architecture. The Mackintosh House and Hunterian Museum are worth the visit.

Was at the University for a conference and the food was truly awful. Platters of (maybe bought in) sandwiches that were just too chunky and tasteless. I tasted an egg mayonnaise sandwich and it tasted like lard! Truly yuk! As it was a three day conference, the same choice of sandwiches was rolled out each day - not very good... More

It's an amazing place to visit, the mais building of the university looks like Hogwarts inside. It's also a good place to study, very friendly professors, massive gym and many options of sports and a well recognized university worldwide.

Spent 4 happy years here. Beautiful campus with plenty of galleries on site and beautiful gardens. It was a sad day when they took the giant T Rex away.

I was a student here from 2008-2009 and I highly recommend anyone visiting Glasgow to have a small walk around the main building, the gothic cloisters, the graduation hall (Bute Hall) and the old quadrangle. There is nearly 550 years of history here and the Hunterian Museum and Art gallery is well worth a visit! Check out the temperature before... More
