I went to see some of the university buildings in Sept 2015. Some of the buildings (newer ones) are lovely to walk past as the architecture is very good (some of the buildings). If you are interested in seeing universities, then I would recommend it, otherwise it can be skipped to see other sights in Glasgow (my opinion).

Was really excited when I first came to Glasgow for my tertiary education from the pictures I've seen online but to my dismay it doesn't turns out to be what I actually expect. Thumbs up for a quality degree but nothing too special really about the university.

The University of Strathclyde is situated in Glasgow City itself. It has a wonderful main building and sits in well maintained gardens. I sat and marvelled at the architecture in the tranquil grounds! It is a wonderful place to visit and good for excercise (walking and cycling, beware the hilly terrain). It is close to the city centre and Glasgow... More
