For me, it's so much more interesting to read about the solutions to problems, and not just people moaning about what they don't know and can't be ars*d to go and look up.

No offence intended, of course.


Goan yersel big man! :D

In defence of Ronnie,who I am sure is more than able to do so himself. I think that he may simply have been making the point that if the original posters are trawling around the grounds of Glasgow Uni, then they are likely to be students who should be more than capable of walking down to north St to find the information. Encouraging them to be at least a little acaedemic in their approach.

I accept the points made by others, that not everyone has time, ability nor inclination to go to the mitchell.

But a wee plug now have a look:Here

I'm seriously fed up of people who think students have all the time in the world. I have 7 exams in May, so really don't have the time despite all the myths that surround student life. It's all very well if you have a 9-5 job that you can come home from and have your tea and then have your evenings free. I admit I procrastinate in doing work but I certainly don't have the time to run down to the Mitchell to find out things, when a forum is designed for asking questions and is far more accessible for a few hours a week.

Fossil


Is that 'out of uniform' as in wearing a posh frock instead or is it 'out of uniform' as in a warts and all burst couch sort of a way?

Back on topic, the entrance you found (sounds like it's down under the bridge that is the entrance to Computing Service in James Watt North, but I could be wrong) is most likely access to one of the maintenance tunnels that run under some parts of the campus connecting the buildings for network cabling, pipes and the like.

The mine tunnels are a bit further down that this; I've finally tracked down where in the chemistry building the entrance to the nearest mine is, and it's well below the level of the sub-sub basement (the door is also firmly padlocked before anyone asks!). Investigations continue though... :)

I used to think it lead to an old air-raid shelter (don't know why, I just did), maybe it's another hidden tunnel into more deserted rooms or old mine workings.

I'm interested in this too. Is this a flat door set into the ground or is it in a raised hut or something? I saw lots of metal guards, just like fancy drain covers, in the middle of the grass at the University Avenue side of the building. I didn't see anything near the flagpole today, but I only walked as far as the pole itself and then back towards the James Watt. I'll go round the other way and take a look soon, is it next to the building itself or on the other side of the path/road?
