The University of Glasgow (Scottish Gaelic: Oilthigh Ghlaschu) began its life in the mid 15th century, in Glasgow, Scotland, and for Scottish academics of the post 1400's along side St Andrews it was the answer to Oxbridge. It is a renowned centre for teaching and research, with an international reputation, being one of the ancient universities, the fourth oldest in the English-speaking world and amongst the largest and most prestigious seats of learning in Europe. The University of Glasgow is one of only twenty British higher education institutions to be ranked amongst the top 100 universities of the world.
Founded by a papal bull of Pope Nicholas V it is the second greenest university in Europe and among the top 15 in the world. Independently ranked as amongst the top ten in the UK for teaching quality. Overall a top 20 university  and rated third in the UK for student experience. For 2007 and 2008 it is the Scottish university of the year  and today it is a member of the Russell Group as well as the Universitas 21.
The University's main campus is on Gilmorehill in the green West End of Glasgow. The University also has a number of buildings elsewhere in the city, a facility at Loch Lomond as well as jointly operating the Crichton Campus in Dumfries with a number of other institutions.

Compared to any other university in the UK only Oxbrige and St Andrews can rival Glasgow's history. However, even Oxbridge could be equalled and others would find it difficult to compete with the university's campus. With 550 years of development, collection and construction, Glasgow university has more listed buildings than any other higher education institution in the UK (more than 100). Glasgow is not just academically strong, but also a tourists dream and this may be one of the reasons why there is very high average of 7 students to one place. The lucky few of those seven would be taught within the same walls as such allumni as Adam Smith and Lord Kelvin. Once graduated they would be among the best paid in the UK, earning on average just over £21,000 in their first job..
Recently, the University's teaching quality was independently assessed to be among the top 10 in the United Kingdom, along with its reputation as a 'research powerhouse', whose income from annual research contracts also placing among the top 10 the UK, generating a total income of over £362,000,000 per year.  The most recent Independent Good University Guide places Glasgow as second in Scotland, and one of only two Scottish Universities in the UK's top 20.
Glasgow has the fourth largest financial endowment among UK universities at £134m, and the fifth largest endowment per student, according to the Sutton Trust, with investment in facilities of over £150 million in the last 5 years. 
According to the Education Gaurdian's university league tables of 2009 and that of The Good University Guide's 2009, Glasgow university is ranked amongst the top 20 universities in the UK with positions of 20th and 16th respectively. One of relatively only a handful of UK universities in the top 100 THES QS - world rankings, this Scottish university of the year for 2 years running has been ranked above such institutions like Manchester, Bristol and Kings College London. 
The university is a member of the elite Russell Group of research-led British universities and is a founding member of the organisation Universitas 21, an international grouping of universities dedicated to setting world-wide standards for higher education.The Main Building, from University Avenue
The University has recently published its 'Building on Excellence' strategy for 2006-2010. The University's strategic plan sets out the ambition to be one of the best Universities in the world, by being an outstanding place for research, teaching and learning. The University aims to be recognised as one of the UK's top 10 universities (from its current ranking of 16th and 20th in the 2009 publications. Whilst some would argue that this is over ambitious, few universities have had such a large increase in position in university league tables from one year to the next., and as one of the world's top 50 research-intensive universities.
As of February 2007, the University had almost 19,000 undergraduate and 5,000 postgraduate students. Glasgow has a large (for the UK) proportion of 'home' students, with over 40% of the student body coming from the West of Scotland, an additional 39% from elsewhere in the UK, leaving 16% from elsewhere in the world. More recently the University has started to attract more overseas students, particularly from Asia. There are 6,000 staff, of whom 3,400 are researchers, bringing in £130M of research income (2006-7). Twenty-three subject areas, and 96% of staff were awarded 5 or 5* ratings in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).
The most recent rankings from the Times Higher Education Supplement, compiled by QS, and widely regarded as one of the most respected world university rankings, places Glasgow in the top 75 Worldwide for Arts, Humanities, Biological Sciences, and Social Sciences. On top of this, recent statistics also show Glasgow to be among the top 10 in the UK for both entry standards, as well as the percentage of students who go on to gain first or upper second class honours degrees. These details are available to registered members on the THES website.
The university is ranked in the band 102 - 150 by the Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Academic Ranking of World Universities above such renowned institutions like Durham university. Also is currently ranked in 81st place in the THES - QS World University Rankings, above St Andrews, making it one of only two institutions in Scotland to be placed inside the top 100.
Notable alumni and faculty
The University of Glasgow was founded in 1451 by a papal bull of Pope Nicholas V, at the suggestion of King James II, giving Bishop William Turnbull permission to add the university to the city's cathedral. Its founding came about as a result of King James II's wish that Scotland have two Universities to equal Oxford and Cambridge of England. It is the second oldest university in Scotland (the oldest being the 1410-founded University of St Andrews), and the fourth oldest in the English-speaking world. The Universities of St Andrews, Glasgow and Aberdeen are ecclesiastical foundations, while Edinburgh was a civic foundation.
The University has been without its original Bull, issued by Pope Nicholas V in 1451, since the mid-sixteenth century. In 1560, during the political unrest accompanying the Scottish Reformation, the then chancellor, Archbishop James Beaton, a supporter of the Marian cause, fled to France taking with him for safe-keeping many of the archives and valuables of the Cathedral and the University, including the Mace and the Bull. Although the Mace was sent back in 1590 the archives were not. Principal Dr James Fall told the Parliamentary Commissioners of Visitation on 28 August 1690, that he had seen the Bull at the Scots College in Paris, together with the many charters granted to the University by the Kings and Queens of Scotland from James II to Queen Mary. The University enquired of these documents in 1738 but was informed by Thomas Innes and the superiors of the Scots College, that the original records of the foundation of the University were not now to be found. If they had not been lost by this time they certainly went astray during the French Revolution when the Scots College was itself under threat and its records and valuables were moved for safe-keeping out of the city of Paris. Nevertheless, the Bull remains the authority by which the University awards degrees.
Glasgow has enjoyed a (usually friendly) rivalry with the University of St Andrews since its creation, and with the University of Edinburgh since the foundation of the latter in 1583. Of all the universities and tertiary education establishments in Scotland, only Glasgow offers a complete range of professional studies including law, medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and engineering, combined with a comprehensive range of academic studies including science, social science, ancient and modern languages, literature, theology and history.
Teaching at the University began in the chapterhouse of Glasgow Cathedral, subsequently moving to nearby Rottenrow, in a building known as the 'Auld Pedagogy'. The University was given 13 acres of land belonging to the Black Friars (Dominicans) on High Street by Mary, Queen of Scots in 1563. By the late 17th century, the University building centred on two courtyards surrounded by walled gardens, with a clock tower which was one of the notable features of Glasgow's skyline, and a chapel adapted from the church of the former Dominican (Blackfriars) friary. This complex was one of the finest Renaissance buildings in Scotland, and its demolition, following the transferral of the University to its present site in 1871 (in less 'rough' surroundings) was one of the worst acts of cultural vandalism in 19th century Scotland. Remnants of this Scottish Renaissance building, mainly parts of the main facade, were transferred to the Gilmorehill campus and renamed as the 'Pearce Lodge'. The 'Lion and Unicorn' was also transferred from the old college site.
John Anderson FRS, while professor of natural philosophy at the university and with some opposition from his colleagues, pioneered vocational education for working men and women during the industrial revolution. To continue this work in his will he founded Anderson's College, which was associated with the university before merging with other institutions to become Strathclyde University.
The university's initial accommodations were part of the complex of religious buildings in the precincts of Glasgow Cathedral. In 1460 the University received a grant of land from James, Lord Hamilton, on the east side of the High Street, immediately north of the Blackfriars Church, on which it had its home for the next four hundred years. In the mid-seventeenth century, the Hamilton Building was replaced with a very grand two-court building with a decorated west front facing the High Street, called the 'Nova Erectio' or New Building. Over the following centuries, the university's size and scope continued to expand, including Scotland's first public museum, the Hunterian. It was a centre of the Scottish Enlightenment and subsequently of the industrial revolution, and its expansion in the High Street was constrained. The area around the university declined as well off residents moved westwards with expansion of the city and overcrowding of the immediate area by less well off residents. It was this rapid slumming of the area that was a chief catalyst of the university's migration westward.
Consequently in 1870, it moved to a (then greenfield) site on Gilmorehill in the West End of the city - around three miles west of its prior location - enclosed by a large meander of the River Kelvin. Its new-build campus was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the Gothic revival style. The largest of these buildings (now called the Gilbert Scott Building) echoed, on a far grander scale, the original High Street campus's twin quadrangle layout. Between the two quadrangles Scott's son Oldrid built an open undercroft, above which is his grand Bute Hall (used for examinations and graduation ceremonies), and the buildings' signature Gothic bell tower. The blond sandstone cladding and Gothic design of the buildings' exterior belie the modernity of its Victorian construction — Scott's building is structured upon what was then a cutting-edge riveted iron frame construction, supporting a lightweight wooden-beam roof. The building also forms the second-largest example of Gothic revival architecture in Britain, after the Palace of Westminster.
Even these enlarged premises could not contain the ever-growing university, which quickly spread across much of Gilmorehill. The 1930s saw the construction of the award-winning round Reading Room (it is now a grade-A listed building) and an aggressive programme of house purchases, in which the university (fearing the surrounding district of Hillhead was running out of suitable building land) acquired several terraces of Victorian houses and joined them together internally. The departments of Psychology and most of the Arts Faculty continue to be housed in these terraces.
More buildings were built beside the main buildings, developing the land between University Avenue and the river with natural science buildings and the faculty of medicine. The medical school spread into neighbouring Partick and joined with the Western General Infirmary. The growth and prosperity of the city, which had originally forced the university's relocation to Hillhead, again proved problematic when more real estate was required. The school of veterinary medicine, which was founded in 1862, moved to a new campus in the leafy surrounds of Garscube Estate on the edge of the city in 1954. The university later moved its sports ground and associated facilities to Anniesland (around two miles west of the main campus) and built student halls of residence in both Anniesland and Maryhill.
The growth of tertiary education, as a result of the Robbins Report in the 1960s, led the university to build numerous modern buildings across the hill, including several brutalist concrete blocks: the Mathematics building; the Boyd Orr building (a squat grey concrete tower housing lecture rooms and laboratories named after university graduate and Nobel Peace Prize winner John Boyd Orr); and the Adam Smith building (housing the social science faculty, named after university graduate Adam Smith). Other additions around this time, including the glass-lined library tower and the amber-brick geology building, were more in keeping with Gilmorehill's leafy suburban architecture. The erection of these buildings around 1968 also involved the demolition of a large number of houses in Ashton Road, and rerouting the west end of University Avenue to its current position.
The University's Hunterian Museum resides in the Gilbert Scott Building, and the related Hunterian Gallery is housed in buildings adjacent to the University Library. The latter includes "The Mackintosh House", a rebuilt terraced house designed by, and furnished after, architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
The university opened a campus in the town of Dumfries in Dumfries and Galloway. The Crichton campus, designed to meet the needs for tertiary education in an area far from major concentrations of population, is jointly operated by the University of Glasgow, the University of Paisley, Bell College, and the Open University. It offers a modular undergraduate curriculum, leading to one of a small number of liberal arts degrees, as well as providing the regions only access to postgraduate study.
In October 2001 the century-old Bower Building (previously home to the university's botany department) was gutted by fire. The interior and roof of the building were largely destroyed, although the main facade remained intact. After a £10.8 million refit, the building re-opened to staff and students in November 2004. The Wolfson Medical School Building, with its award-winning glass-fronted atrium, opened in 2002.
The University Library, situated opposite the main building, is regarded as one of the best academic libraries in Europe, with the number of books alone topping two million. Situated over 12 floors, it also houses sections for periodicals, microfilms, special collections and rare materials, some of which are exhibited on the top floor.  In addition to the main library, subject libraries also exist for Chemistry, Dental Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Education, and the faculty of Social Sciences, which are held in branch libraries around the campus.  In 2007, a state of the art section to house the library's collection of historic photographs was opened, funded by the Wolfson Foundation.
The Archives of the University of Glasgow (GUAS) is the central place of deposit for the records of the University created and accumulated since its foundation in 1451. Has act as the guardian of the University’s collective memory as revealed in the records of management, administration, staff and students and thus protect the rights of all members of the University community.
The university is currently spread over a number of different campuses. The main one is the Gilmorehill campus, in Hillhead. As well as this there is the Veterinary School at the top of Maryhill Road, on the Garscube Estate. The University also operates a Dental School in the city centre, as well as the aforementioned Crichton campus in Dumfries, and in 2003 they opened their new Education Faculty Building (the St Andrews Building, replacing Bearsden's St Andrews Campus) in the Woodlands area of the city on the site of the former Queens College, which had in turn been bought by Glasgow Caledonian University, from whom the university acquired the site. The University has also established joint departments with the Glasgow School of Art and in naval architecture with the University of Strathclyde.
As well as these teaching campuses the university has halls of residence in and around the North-West of the city, accommodating a total of approximately 3,500 students. They have the Murano Street halls in Maryhill; the Wolfson halls, also in Maryhill, on the Garscube Estate; Queen Margaret halls, in Kelvinside; Cairncross House and Kelvinhaugh Gate, in Yorkhill. In recent years, Dalrymple and Horslethill halls in Dowanhill, Reith halls in North Kelvinside and the Maclay halls in Park Circus (near Kelvingrove Park), have closed and been sold, as the development value of such property increased.
The university also has a large sports complex at the Garscube Estate, beside their Wolfson Halls and Vet School. This is a new facility. They sold their previous sports ground (Westerlands) which was in the Anniesland area of Glasgow. The university also has a boathouse situated at Glasgow Green on the River Clyde. It is out of here that the Glasgow University Boat Club train.
Governance and administration
In common with the other Ancient universities of Scotland the University's constitution is laid out in the Universities (Scotland) Acts. These Act create a tripartite structure of bodies - the University Court (governing body), the Academic Senate (academic affairs) and the General Council (advisory). There is also a clear separation between governance and executive administration.
The University's constitution, academic regulations, and appointments are authoritatively described in the University calendar, while other aspects of its story and constitution are detailed in a separate 'history' document.
The governing body of the University is the University Court, which is responsible for contractual matters; employing staff; and all other matters relating to finance and administration. The Court takes decisions about the deployment of resources as well as formulating strategic plans for the university. The Court is chaired by the Rector (see below for more information), who is elected by all the matriculated students at the university.
The Academic Senate (or University Senate) is the body which is responsible for the management of academic affairs, and the awarding of all degrees. The Senate consists of various academics and is chaired by the Principal of the university.
There are also a number of committees of both the Court and Senate that make important decisions and investigate matters referred to them. As well as these bodies there is a General Council made up of the university graduates that is involved in the running of the university. The graduates also elect the Chancellor of the university. A largely honorific post, the current Chancellor is Professor Sir Kenneth Calman, former Chief Medical Officer and current Vice-Chancellor of the University of Durham.
Day to day management of the University is undertaken by the University Principal (who is also Vice-Chancellor) and the Secretary of Court. The current principal is Sir Muir Russell who replaced Professor Sir Graeme Davies in October, 2003. The current secretary of court is David Newall.
There are also several Vice-Principals, each with a specific remit. They, along with the Clerk of Senate, play a major role in the day to day management of the university.
There are currently nine faculties at Glasgow University. They are
- Biomedical and Life Sciences;
- Education (formed when the university merged with St Andrews College of Education);
- Information and Mathematical Sciences;
- Law, Business and Social Sciences;
- Medicine (includes Dentistry and Nursing);
- Physical Sciences; and
- Veterinary Medicine.
The Veterinary School is perhaps one of Glasgow's most famous faculties, having produced the personalities of James Herriot (aka Alf Wight), Eddie Straiton ("The TV Vet"), Sir William Weipers, among many others and has the distinction of having its degree recognised not only by the UK, but also the USA, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, as well as most other countries in the world, an honour shared by only a handful of other institutions.
The Medical School is also one of Glasgow's greatest strengths. Traditionally considered one of the top schools in the UK, it placed first in The Times' 2004 ranking of UK university medical departments. Notable medical graduates and Professors of the Medical School include Professor Sir Kenneth Calman, former Chief Medical Officer, now the new Chancellor of the University of Glasgow; Professor David Barlow , Executive Dean of the Glasgow University Faculty of Medicine, one of the UK’s leading authorities on reproductive medicine and osteoporosis and was Nuffield Professor of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the University of Oxford; and the late Professor Sir Abraham Goldberg, (1923-2007), Emeritus Regius Professor of the Practice of Medicine.
Unlike other universities in Scotland, Glasgow does not have a single students' association. Instead, representation and welfare services are provided by the Students' Representative Council and students may also join one of two students' unions which provide other services. 
Neither of the University's students' unions are affiliated to the National Union of Students - membership has been rejected on a number of occasions, most recently in November 2006, on both economic and political grounds. Neither does the representative body take the form of a Students' Association, as it does at other Scottish universities. However, every student is automatically represented by the Glasgow University Students' Representative Council (SRC) and has the right to stand for election to this body and elect its members. The President of the SRC, along with one other SRC member, the Court Assessor, sit on the University Court and a number of SRC members sit on the Academic Senate (which also has the responsibility of overseeing student discipline). Each student has the right to opt out of being an SRC member, although this rarely happens.
- See: Rector of the University of Glasgow
- See: List of elections for Rector of the University of Glasgow
Students also elect a Rector (officially styled "Lord Rector") who holds office for a three year term and is legally entitled to chair the University Court. This position is in practice largely an honorary and ceremonial one, and has been held by political figures including William Gladstone, Benjamin Disraeli, Andrew Bonar Law, Robert Peel, Raymond Poincaré, Arthur Balfour, and 1970s union activist Jimmy Reid, and latterly by celebrities such as TV presenters Arthur Montford and Johnny Ball, musician Pat Kane, and actors Richard Wilson, Ross Kemp and Greg Hemphill. In the past, few Rectors have actually been present to perform the duties of their office, although in recent years there has been a trend to elect people on the expectation that they will be working rectors. Ross Kemp was asked to resign by the SRC (which he did) for what they felt was a failure to act as a working rector. In 2004, for the first time in its history, the University was left without a Rector as no nominations were received. When the elections were run in December, Mordechai Vanunu was chosen for the post, even though he is unable to attend due to restrictions placed upon him by the Israeli government. The current rector of the University, elected on the 28th of February 2008, is Charles Kennedy, the former leader of the Liberal Democratic Party and University of Glasgow alumnus.
Student Unions and representationThe Glasgow University Union's historic building at the bottom of University Avenue.
In addition to the Students' Representative Council, students are commonly members of one of the University's two students' unions, Glasgow University Union (GUU) and the Queen Margaret Union (QMU).
Both unions are steeped in a long history. Historically the GUU was all-male, and the QMU was for female students. These are largely social and cultural institutions, providing their members with facilities for debating, dining, recreation, socialising, and drinking, and both have a number of meeting rooms available for rental to members. Postgraduate students, mature students and staff can join the Hetherington Research Club, although postgraduates are entitled to join one of the student unions in addition to the Research Club.
Glasgow has led the UK's university debating culture since 1953. The Glasgow University Union has won the World Universities Debating Championships five times, more than any other university or club in the series' multi-decade history.
Sporting affairs are regulated by the Glasgow University Sports Association (GUSA) (previously the Glasgow University Athletics Club). There are a large number of varied clubs, who regularly compete in BUSA competitions. Students who join one of the sports clubs, affiliated with the university such as GURFC, Glasgow Tigers American Football Team, Glasgow University Shinty Club, and the Glasgow University Canoe Club, must also join GUSA.
Student clubs and societies
The University has an eclectic body of clubs and societies, ranging from the Glasgow University Penguin Society to the Anthropological Film Society. The Glasgow University Engineering Society was once presided over by Percy Pilcher, giving it the claim to fame of having been the birthplace of controlled glider flight.
Student Theatre at Glasgow has been highly active on campus throughout its existence and the likelihood is that if you studied at Glasgow University during the later 20th century, particularly in the faculty of Arts, you will have come across one or more STaG productions.
There is also an active student media scene at Glasgow University, part of, but editorially independent from, the SRC. There is a multi award winning newspaper, the Glasgow University Guardian; a magazine, Glasgow University Magazine (GUM); a television station, Glasgow University Student Television (GUST); and a radio station, Subcity. In recent years, independent of the SRC, the Queen Margaret Union has published a fortnightly magazine, qmunicate, and Glasgow University Union has produced the GUUi.
