Enjoyed the tour of the outside of the university, and I hope to get back some day to look around inside and in the University Chapel.

Great place to visit, Harry Potter fan or not, the building is beatiful and the atmosphere is great. Sadly the little museum was closed on our visit, monday of course...

Beautiful campus with much greenery. We went early morning so parking was a cinch. I really wished we could have walked around more. The few hours we had was a bit too limited.

So my daughter just graduated with her masters there. I can't even tell you how cool this university is, sort of Hogwarts's for real. But also one of the top 100 universities in the world. Not a bad place to pick up your post grad...More

Harry Potter is not a story. He is at University of Glasgow. Explore it , educate here. Everything is magical

Just walking through the place was amazing. Everyone visiting Glasgow should at least spent some minutes at this spot. Felt a bit like Hogwarts!

Beautiful place in every season of the year. Go and visit it in the morning or in autumn/winter to avoid crowds of tourists - just because to fully enjoy this place.

Take a short 10 minute walk down the hill to Byres Road or Ashton Lane, which is a more boutique dining experience, and eat there. Just tell the server you want separate checks before you order. Hope this helps Bob

Please go to the Glasgow University website and it has a tour. Block your time there.
