The campus is beautiful and has a history. But it is under construction now , otherwise I think it will look much better.

Spectacular old campus. Would be a more interesting place to visit during the school year, i think, for the added element of people watching.

I love to visit college campuses when I travel, and McGill has a lovely one, with very helpful people. Great place to see!

While you are in Montreal, make sure you walk through the grounds of McGill University. The architecture is beautiful and the landscaping is beautiful. We stopped in at the main library, and the gentleman at the front desk was exceedingly helpful

Many old buildings still look stylish. Lots of construction going on in the main campus, but not a lot of students makes it a quiet setting. The Red Carpet Hall has a small museum that's worth stopping by. Really wished to go into a classroom...More

The red hall was beautiful with portraits on seeming presidents of the college. The organ was magnificent and very well balanced. I enjoyed this beautiful campus in the middle of the city.

We spent a short time walking around what seems to be a huge campus. There were some very old buildings and some newer ones. It is a hilly campus but worth seeing.

There were many changes since the last visit. There were few activities due to the time of the year.

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.

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

We stayed in old Montreal which was a good 35 minute walk from McGill. I would highly recommend staying in OM but not if you have to get to McGill daily.

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.
