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.

I walked the grounds of McGill University and enjoyed the flowers, sculptures and attractive building restorations. Kudos to those of McGill who have the vision to make this area of Montreal so attractive.

Near Mount Royal, so many buildings. If you have 3 days in Montreal it would be worth it to go see McGIll as it is in a neat part of town. Lots of restaurants nearby as well.

We were fortunate to have a quick tour round this stunning and compact campus with our nephew who is lucky to be studying here. What a great location so close to the city centre - you could walk or cycle everywhere. Beautiful buildings and grounds....More

Clean and tidy campus right in the city. Historic buildings and greens give a feeling like you are far from the city. View of Mont Royal is dramatic.

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.
