The University is only 200 yards from Buchanan Bus Station.


The University is situated within easy walking distance of both Glasgow Queen Street Station and Glasgow Central Station. For details of train times, visit the National Rail Enquiries Service.


The University is easily accessible from Junction 16 (Westbound) or Junctions 15 & 17 (Eastbound) of the M8 motorway. Although no parking is available on campus, there is ample space available at the nearby Buchanan Galleries car park.

Glasgow Airport is situated approximately 10 miles to the west of the City Centre and is linked to the City Centre with a regular (every 20 minutes) bus service to Buchanan Bus Station which is opposite the University.
