Very modern forward thinking university

We toured just the downtown campus - beautiful interiors and some of the building are linked by tunnels.

I was invited back to my alma mater to speak with some students about my experiences after leaving Concordia, but first I was toured through the JMSB and it was amazing. After an hour long presentation this is the email I received the next day from the course Instructor; Wow....Not only did I think that you killed it tonight, but... More

It's not a place I'd suggest visiting if you're in town. I guess at the most maybe see the loyola campus but it's pretty far and nothing else around there.

Visiting Concordia shows you how much they care for their students. Still seen as a new bee compare to McGill, Concordia seems to be very attractive nowadays

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
