There are four entrances/exits:
This leads north through a partially covered forecourt with:
windows of Burger King, beside steps|
steps up north to entrance
ramp to/from entrance|
double access road from George Square.|
The access road is divided into an entrance (west) and exit )east) section with a turning area/at the north end.
You can either go up a slope then ten steps, going north then through a short passage into the concourse. Alternatively, you can go up the ramp from the right-hand (east) side. The ramp passes the entrance to the hotel before turning left and continuing to the top of the steps, outside the station. Turn right and go into the concourse. There’s a blank door (to Burger King) on your left before you reach the concourse.

There’s a single-stage crossing of West George Street, outside the George Square entrance. Continue from the foot of the steps and locate the tactile paving in front of you. The posts with push button and rotating cone are west of the crossing, that is to your right as you cross away from the station, to your left as you cross towards it.
The stop for the 398 to Buchanan Bus Station and Glasgow Central Station is on the far side of the pavement outside the North Hanover Street entrance. Leave the station and bear slightly left, up a slight slope.

The car park leads north, beyond the scope of this survey, whilst the eastern boundary of this space is a wall between the car park and North Hanover Street. The Millennium Hotel is to the south, whilst the vehicle access road leads east from the southeast corner. The entrance to the low level is on the north side of the vehicle access road, just off North Hanover Street.
