Active Minds Workshop

Queen Elizabeth Teaching and Learning Centre, Glasgow
July 18-19 2018.

A free workshop exploring human computer interaction, mobile health, mental health, and physical (in)activity.


The workshop will be at the Queen Elizabeth Teaching and Learning Centre in Glasgow

Queen Elizabeth Teaching and Learning Centre is located at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) in Glasgow. This venue is easy to reach from Glasgow city centre and the west end. Public transport provides direct access to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospitals and allows interchange with the subway, other bus services and the train at Govan, Partick or in the City Centre. Arrival Square is located in the centre of the Queen Elizabeth University Hospitals site and can be accessed from Govan Road and Hardgate Road. More information.

Travel and accomodation

If you are travelling from outside Glasgow by rail we recommend using Glasgow Queen Street or Glasgow Central Station and connecting to the number 77 bus to the hospital or using the subway to travel to Govan station, and then walking to the venue (see the information above from the venue for alternatives). If you are flying, you can travel to Glasgow easily from Glasgow Airport, Edinburgh Airport or Prestwick.

Updated information: The easiest way to travel to the hospital by public transport is to catch the number 77 bus. Unlike the subway it goes right to the hospital. The bus can be taken from the City Centre as well as Partick in the West End. See the First route 77 website for more detail, or use Google Maps.

There are many options for travelling within Glasgow, including the subway, bus and taxi. A typical fare with Uber for travelling from Glasgow Central Station to the venue is £10. A single ticket for the subway costs £1.70. A return on the 77 bus costs £4.30.

We recommend staying in Glasgow west end, or the city centre and walking or using public transport to get to the venue. Our recommended hotel is The Belhaven Hotel, from where you can use Hillhead subway to reach Govan and then walk to the venue. Cheaper venues including the EasyHotel and Premier Inn are available.

Please note that some hotels near to the site may not be easily accessible by foot, and it is better to use public transport from the city center or west end.
