  • Took in this large University, what a beautiful sight to see. This University is one of the top in North America. If you get a chance to see the Library make sure to check it out.  more »
  • I was really impressed by this area where you can savor the tranquility, the peace culture. Every person who passed had the smile, the squirrels run undisturbed and quiet as if they were in a forest alone safely. Beautiful

  • This University shows its air of tradition and antiquity that it becomes a part of the city that is modernized, with McGill at the foot of the avenue that crosses Montreal and serves as a cultural reference, surrounded by museums

  • Great University with a lot of diversity. I had a great experience and I learned a lot from amazing professors with outstanding backgrounds with a lot of accomplishment and résumés. Proud to say that this university deserves his great reputation. A lot of services offered if help is needed. Students from all over the world come here to study. Getting a degree from this university means open door for success for most of the alumni. Overall, I received a great education in this top-rated Canadian University!!
  • i believe that everywhere in the world you will find the good side and bad side of every university. there is no perfect one and since its also service based; the feeling it gives 1 person might be different to another. i am going go hopefully attend this uni and i just cant wait. from all i have read and the videos i have seen its awesome. sidenote: reduce the campus rent fee
  • Heard really good things about you people and admission staff is very very very friendly. Finally got admission toooo. Hope my further experience there will be as good as it was before admission :)
  • I am an alumni, so maybe my opinion would be biased. But great university. Wonderful faculties. My two years in the university were a great experience. Also, located literally at the heart of the city.
  • Totally a biased alumni, but I love this University! I even sometimes miss the scenic walks allllllll the way up the hill to our little Hosmer House and McIntyre Medical Building!

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
