The University of Glasgow (Scottish Gaelic: Oilthigh Ghlaschu) was founded in 1451, in Glasgow, Scotland. One of Scotland's ancient universities and the fourth-oldest in the English-speaking world, the University is one of seventeen British higher education institutions ranked amongst the top 100 of the world.

Originally founded by a papal bull issued by Pope Nicholas V, it is now independently ranked as amongst the top ten universities in the UK for teaching quality. Glasgow is regarded as a centre for educational excellence, ranking as a top 20 university in various tables, and rated third in the UK for student experience. In addition to this, it was also the Sunday Times "Scottish University of the Year" in 2007. Glasgow is a current member of the Russell Group, as well as of Universitas 21.

The University's main campus is located on Gilmorehill, in the West End of Glasgow. The University also has a number of buildings elsewhere in the city; a facility at Loch Lomond; the University Marine Biological Station Millport and the Crichton Campus in Dumfries, which is jointly operated alongside a number of other institutions.

Glasgow is currently the only University in Scotland with a full range of professional departments in Law, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Dentistry.
