Travel around Glasgow:
Glasgow’s subway system connects the west end (where the University is located) to the city centre, and also to places on the south side of the city. The University is located very near to both the Hillhead and Kelvinbridge stops. The city also has a comprehensive bus network, a rail system in some areas, and numerous taxi companies, e.g. Glasgow Taxis. There is also a bike hire system.
Main conference venues:
This map shows the location of the main conference venue, the Glasgow University Union, as well as the locations of Queen Margaret Residences (accommodation), Glasgow City Chambers (venue for drinks reception on Monday 22nd), and Òran Mór (venue for conference dinner on Tuesday 23rd).
