Travelling information

How to get to Glasgow

  • Direct flights to Glasgow Airport.
  • Edinburgh airport offers more flights than Glasgow. There is a bus service between Edinburgh airport and Glasgow. This travel takes around 1 hour.
  • Flights to Manchester airport. Every two hours (07:00, 09:00, etc) there is a direct train from Manchester Airport station to Glasgow central station, taking around three and a half hours and travelling through some spectacular scenery.

How to get from Glasgow Airport to the university

  • There is a bus service between the airport and the city centre. The bus does not serve the university directly: you must get out at George Square at Queen Street Station, where you can get the subway to Hillhead.
  • A taxi from the airport to the University costs around £20.

How to get from Glasgow city centre to the university

  • By bus: routes 4, 4A and 15 run through the university campus from the city centre. Find here the bus timetables.

We recommend the following hotels for staying over, which are located close to the university and are in about 10 to 15 minutes walking distance from the venue.
