Established in 1451, Glasgow University is officially the fourth oldest university in the English speaking world. Over 30,000 students and staff attend its two main Glasgow campuses, as well as its faculties in the town of Dumfries.
Whether you’re planning on travelling to the Glasgow campuses from within the city, or from further afield, there are plenty of reliable and affordable transport options to consider.
How to get to Gilmorehill Campus
main campus lies in the city’s west end where it borders the beautiful Kelvingrove Park, all within a few miles of the city centre.
The 4 and 4A First Bus routes are ideal for travelling between the campus and the city centre, whilst several services also travel along the nearby Byres Road, Dumbarton Road and Church Street.
Alternatively, consider taking advantage of Glasgow’s excellent subway network with stops at nearby Hillhead, Kelvinhall and Kelvinbridge.
Numerous bicycle parking facilities are available on campus for those who prefer to travel on two wheels; a great way to save money whilst exploring different areas of Glasgow
How to get to Garscube Campus
Garscube Campus is located some four miles northeast of Gilmorehill and mainly caters to Life Sciences, Medical and Veterinary students. The Glasgow Citybus 15 route offers travel between the two campuses, whilst First Bus services 4A and 6B also operate daily departures.
You can also hop on a train from Glasgow Central or Queen Street and get off at either Anniesland or Switchback Road station, both of which are a 10-20 minute walk from campus.
Car share to and from Glasgow University
Parking spaces are fairly limited at both campuses, giving you all the more reason to set up a car share scheme with friends or colleagues. Fill your vehicle with passengers, split the cost of fuel and enjoy some great company during your daily commute. A cheap, enjoyable and environmentally friendly way to travel.
