  • McGill is a great university, I was student there for 3 years. The campus is really nice, but walking uphill in the winter can be somewhat tricky and dangerous. The distance between buildings makes getting to class on time a real challenge. The historical buildings are very nice from the outside, but could use some serious renovations on the inside. The campus has been transformed into a big construction site in the last two years, making tuition there less enjoyable. The librairies get very crowded and hot during exam season and renders study rooms unavailable. The quality of education is excellent and increases as the classes shrink in size because the learning experience is enhanced. Many classes are recorded which makes attendance completely optional for those who can't make it to class. Alumni benefit from many things upon graduation, such as the McGill reputation and a wide network of former students to connect with.
  • Most enjoyable period. Graduated in 1984 among Sec School Teachers from Kenya.The Learning was intensive but the Faculty was very helpful.
  • Things have been going down at McGill for a while but with them allowing students such as Igor to sit on the council and run the daily frankly I am not surprised. It has alienated a whole lot of good talent and now is forced to accept anyone just about anyone who applys. Soon they can just skip the application process entirely. Shame what happen to a once decent school.
  • I wan't to schooling there because my dream course is to be an engineering ang i research in google and i see this school ang i'm shock the rating of this school, so i wan't to school in mcgill university so that my dream come true☺☺
  • A beautiful university, went to visit a friend here and it's really nice for visitors and very convenient for students living in the dorms but could use some touch up for the price.

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.
