Subway

Glasgow has the 3rd oldest subway in the UK and probably the simplest. It consists of a single large ring making it impossible to get lost, though, choosing the wrong circle (inner / outer) will lengthen your journey. It is a single price regardless of which station you are starting and ending at.

There are two subway stations serving the City Center. Buchanan Bus Station (Closest to the Bus Station and Queen Street) and St Enoch’s (Closest to Central Station).

Hillhead Underground Station on Byres Road is a short 5-10 minute walk from the University.

Any Hotel near to any Subway station will give you easy access to the University on the Saturday but the Subway only runs 10AM to 6PM on Sunday so you would have to make alternative travel arrangements.

Walking

If you want to walk from the City Center to the University it takes approximately 40-50 minutes.
