(b) There are taxi ranks outside both stations. Tell the driver to go to University Gardens (If he/she doesn't recognise that then mention the Boyd Orr Building or the Queen Margaret Union which are more or less adjacent to the Maths Building in Univerity Gardens.)
(c) If you come by car then it may be difficult to park in the University itself. However, you should be able to park in the side streets off Byres Road.
There is an eatery (sandwiches and hot meals) in the Main Building. Go to the Main Gate (A21 on map) and then to the Main Building (the eatery is on the ground floor).
There is a cafe (sandwiches etc) in the Wolfson Medical School Building (C8 on the map) across the road from the Maths Building.
We have a very nice Common Room in the Maths Building (Level 2), so if you bring some sandwiches you can eat them there. (There is also a microwave, and tea/coffee is available.)
If it is a nice day you can eat your lunch in the Botanic Gardens (very close, just at the end of Byres Road - see City map).
THE COMMON ROOM IS WHERE WE WILL MUSTER BEFORE THE FIRST TALK.
(1) If you arrive early, there are several attractions in or near the University: The Hunterian Museum (A15, reopening after a major refit); The Hunterian Gallery (D12, has an outstanding collection of Whistlers [though not his mother]); The Mackintosh House (D13, adjacent to the Hunterian Gallery, full of the art and design of Charles Rennie Mackintosh). You could also wander through the cloisters of the Main Building to A10 and then go to the excellent Kelvingrove Art Gallery which is just below the University. The most well-known painting there is Dali's masterpiece "Christ of St John of the Cross". There is quite a nice cafe/restaurant in the gallery.
(2) If you are able to stay longer in Glasgow, the Westend Festival will be on then
