One of the most beautiful campuses that I have walked on. Be prepared for a bit of a hike if you want to see the Faculties at the top of the hill, the athletic complex, or a very good view of the city below.

Couteous and hospitable during our stay at McGill University. Our rooms were very clean and cool considering they were dorm rooms. It is centrally located so that shops and restaurants are within walking distance.We would visit again.

Was graduating while I was there so it was very busy. It is a beautiful campus, up on the hill, with beautiful buildings.

Like strolling through the campus of Harvard, you get the same sense of history and prestige when visiting McGill University. We were among many tourists taking photos of McGill’s breathtakingly beautiful campus and picturesque buildings, uniquely nestled in the heart of downtown Montreal. Historically ranking...More

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.
