Glasgow University

Glasgow University is situated in the west end of Glasgow. The University of Glasgow was founded in 1451 and is the fourth oldest in the English-speaking world. Glasgow University is one of only seventeen British higher education institutions to be ranked amongst the top 100 universities of the world.

The mission of the University is to be a major research-led university operating in an international context with the following fundamental aims:

  • to provide education through the development of learning in a research environment;
  • to undertake fundamental, strategic and applied research;
  • to make a major contribution to local, regional, national and international communities through widening access and through working in partnership to support economic regeneration;
  • to sustain and add value to Scottish culture, to the natural environment and to the national economy.

The University’s main campus is located on Gilmorehill, in the West End of Glasgow. The University also has a number of buildings elsewhere in the city; a facility at Loch Lomond; and the Crichton Campus in Dumfries, which is jointly operated alongside a number of other institutions.

The Argyll Hotel is within a short walk of Glasgow University and an ideal base for visitors to the University.

The hotel is also within easy reach of the Glasgow International College.
