I love to walk though the campus at McGill. I enjoy the mixed architecture and this trip I located a mini-farmer market on campus (restaurant and hospitality students organize and manage the marketplace). Great grounds, good architecture, surrounded by hills, maple trees, clubs and museums...More

Walked through on our way up to Mont Royal, it is a beautiful campus overlooking the city. Loved the closed street, makes it very nice for pedestrians.

Do not miss the opportunity to visit the McGill campus. Starting ideally near the business center of Montréal and extending all the way up the Mont Royal mountain, from which the city takes its name. A truly impressive campus with renowned faculties and a vibrant...More

Not only is McGill University a great campus to walk around and enjoy, but you can stay in their student accommodation in the very central Sherbrooke Street. We did so and it was one of the best accommodations we used during our trip across Canada....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

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.
