About Us

The University of Glasgow at Kelvin Hall is about bringing inspiring people together and creating a world-class environment for collections-based learning, research and skills development.

At the heart of the Scottish Enlightenment 

The University of Glasgow has been changing the world for over 550 years and was at the heart of the Scottish Enlightenment revolution; transforming the world and its inhabitants, through science, social sciences, philosophy and the arts.

For researchers, students and members of the public from all over Scotland and beyond, the new Kelvin Hall is a gateway to that past and portal to the future.
