Where inspiring people flourish.
The University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. Today we are in the top 1% of the world's universities. Since 1451 the University of Glasgow has been tackling the world’s challenges through curiosity, innovation and partnership. We have nurtured Nobel laureates and prime ministers, inventors and renowned thinkers, as they worked to push the boundaries of the possible. Our ever-expanding global community allows us to contribute even further to making the discoveries and connections that help improve the world.
Although the University is rooted in Glasgow’s West End, we have teaching facilities at three other locations; in our Garscube and Dumfries campuses and at the new Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in the south of the city. Each year we welcome more than 25,000 undergraduate and postgraduates, including 3000 international students from over 120 different countries. We attract leading academics from around the world, with over 6,000 staff from more than 90 countries. We have 2,000 active researchers with strong collaborative links with leading institutions across the world.
The University is committed to promoting disability equality in all its activities and to providing an inclusive environment that fosters a positive experience for all staff, students and other members of the University community.
The University strives to make the campus accessible to all users. We recognise users may encounter limitations around our main campus, due to the hilltop location, and understand the importance of enabling access to accurate, practical information on the accessibility of our physical estate. This will enable disabled people to make informed choices, particularly before visiting or applying to study or work here. We welcome the opportunity to work with DisabledGo to provide access to such important information in an accessible format.
