Main Campus (Gilmorehill)

The University of Glasgow was founded in 1451. Our main Gilmorehill campus is based in the West End of Glasgow, within easy reach of the city centre by public transport or on foot. It’s a compact, campus-style environment with all the benefits of being in one of Europe’s most vibrant cities.

Gilmorehill is home to the majority of our teaching and research facilities and has recently expanded as part of our £1 billion campus development programme to include a mix of state of the art research, teaching and public spaces.

At the centre of the campus lies the stunning Gilbert Scott building, with an iconic bell tower that is one of Glasgow’s most notable landmarks. We also have great sports facilities including a 25m swimming pool, two student unions, a museum and art gallery, an enormous library over 12 floors, and more than 300 clubs and societies.

And as we’re right in the heart of the West End of the city, the campus is surrounded by shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and a cinema.
