We were only in the main hall but it was stunning and well worth the climb up the hill. The medieval arches were beautiful and great for photography.

Good for sightseeing. I stayed here for a meeting so I cannot judge the education. Looks, however, very nice. Cantina is sort of o.k.

We had a great time exploring the University. There are several museums on campus, and breathtaking views. It really does take your breath away with the open steeple and countless turrets.

They DO sell food to Joe public, in a place near the Hunterian Art gallery (it's signposted) but it is very expensive and not very good. Better to go to one of the many places on Byres Road.
