Sir Charles Wilson Building, University of Glasgow

Venue for lectures. Image of the empty lecture taken from the central stairs at the back of the lecture theatre showing its distinct architectural features retained from when the building served as a church


This lecture theatre is very atmospheric, as you can see in the picture above. It has all modern facilities but retains many original features in a beautifully refurbished church building. There are good public transport links, free parking very close by in the University grounds from 5pm, plus nice places to eat or drink before the lecture if you want to make a night of it.

The venue has a hearing loop which can be accessed with a hearing aid. The best reception for the loop can be achieved by audience members sitting in one of the front six rows.
