Apparently the biggest property owner in Montreal. There are numerous faculties. Nice spot for a walk. Some great Victorian properties.

It's the first week of classes and all sorts of activities happening at McGill - such interesting stuff as bicycle servicing on the main walk into campus for new (and returning) students. Lovely gardens and fabulous old architecture. Great for a stroll and walkabout

We were attracted to the open paleontology museum on the campus, which was worth visiting if you have an interest. Run by the department, it is wide-ranging collection. Campus is nice, but mostly in and surrounded by downtown. Some buildings are being remodeled or saved...More

I was on exchange here for a couple of weeks. The buildings are quite interesting architecturally. It is located at the bottom of Mont Royal and provides a nice gradual walk up the mountain.

It was summer and they were closed but on a long walk we stumbled upon it. Nice architecture and the grounds were attractive.

We walked through the grounds of the university and it was very beautiful. It was close to our hotel (Hilton) so easy to find.

Took some nice pictures at the "English" University in Francophone-Montreal, Quebec. There were many tourits like me who were engaged in the architecture and "old" feel of this university.

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.
