    If from Queen St Station you'll go from Buchanan Subway (I believe there is a connecting walkway between the two) and if from Central then you can either go from Buchanan or St Enoch. You'll get off at Hillhead.

    Could have been one of any number of stations though :s.

    Partick?

    Charing Cross?

    Both of which are closer than Queen Street and Central!

    The OP posted in the James Watt college thread, so it's most likely they are on the Glasgow Central train line. I could be entirely wrong, in which case the OP should really come back and clarify, but for most people outside of Glasgow it will either be Central or Queen St as their terminus and then they can either catch a bus or get the subway.

    If you're getting the train into Central Station (as opposed to Queen Street which I assume you would from Ayr?), then the quickest way is probably to head towards Buchanan Street, jump on the subway, get the Outer Circle to Hillhead, take a left on to Byres Road, take another left up University Avenue.. and then if you get yourself a copy of the campus map (link below) you can navigate yourself to specific uni buildings from there.

    It's a two minute walk from Central to St Enoch station (probably quicker than going to Buchanan, and going under the bridge will keep you out of the rain for that bit longer!) Buy your ticket, hop on the inner circle and then get off at Hillhead. The journey should take about ten minutes. Then once at Hillhead turn left on exiting and head along to the traffic lights and go left again. If you ever get lost then either ask someone or simply make your way towards the tower and then you'll be at the main gate.

    Just to let you know, biology is based in the Boyd Orr building (go along University Avenue and it's the first building on the left that's not houses, the tall building). Make sure you have a good look around there because it's not the most attractive of buildings. Obviously you'll have lectures elsewhere, but it's worth noting that in your later years it's where you'll spend a lot of time.
