McGill is a great institution with deep-rooted traditions and is Canada's top university. It has very high academic standards and McGill students consider themselves to be quite fortunate to attend the "Harvard of Canada".

A world known University. One of the great universities in Montreal where a dummy can attend for three years and become a well-educated dummy.

Great architecture. Ancient trees. Lots of places to sit. A wonderful place in the heart of the city to relax when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown. Check out the Redpath Museum while there.

We really enjoyed strolling through the university campus buildings. There is a real mix of old and new architecture. Best to visit outside term time or during weekends when it is much quieter.

McGill is one of the many universities in Montreal, and one of the few that offer courses in English. The campus is not only historical, but amazing. Walk through the many 1700's or 1800's buildings and you step into history.

There was construction all over the city when we were there, McGill being no exception. We went up for a concert (most are free). The student at the information desk was very helpful. If it hadn't been a little cold and rainy the next day,...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

I noticed a Metro entrance/exit on Rue Catherine and from there it would be about a five block walk. I would suggest downloading a metro map from Montreal's transportation site.
