About Us




The University Gift Shop, shop at The Hunterian, online shop and other aspects of University of Glasgow retail is run by GU Heritage Retail Limited, a subsidiary company of the University which donates all of its profit to the University.

The University Gift Shop is located on the ground floor of the University Main Building (Gilbert Scott Building) and is most easily accessed from the North side (through the main gate or memorial gate). This shop stocks an eclectic mix of birthday and occasion cards, gifts, prints and stationery and a large range of University clothing and scarves. Whilst many of our products feature the University we also have gifts by local makers and ideal presents for all occasions. There is a selection of books about Glasgow and Scotland more widely and a large section dedicated to the Hunterian Museum collection, including books and gifts linked to the Antonine Wall display as well as areas looking at Egypt, scientific and medical discovery, dinosaurs and fossils, and the natural world more broadly.

The Hunterian Art Gallery Shop is located just inside the gallery entrance on the north side of University Avenue, opposite the main gate. It has an extensive selection of books and gifts related to the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, as well as those drawing on other areas of the Hunterian collections including Whistler, the Scottish Colourists and the Glasgow Boys.


We are a small team of 3 full time and between 6 and 10 part time members of staff, depending on the time of year. Current staff include University of Glasgow students and graduates as well as people with a varied mix of skills, experience and backgrounds.
