Some old, some new. McGill seriously lacks funding.

Some old, some new. Nothing to complain about. Suffers from lack of funding

Great profs, challenging curriculum. You make what you make of it.

It depends on how much you like changing seasons. The winters are very cold (-15 degrees Celsius) and it snows a lot. But the fall colours are gorgeous and summers are short but nice and hot.

printing/scanning/copying is easily available. But computer labs are scarce and fill up fast!

Campus is centrally located downtown so its easy to walk around. There are subway and bus stations just outside of the campus. There is also a rural campus, where the school provides regular shuttle buses to.

Lots of people from all over the world, with emphasis on Asians and Canadians. However, there are people from all seven continents and from all different backgrounds. Overall, I would say McGill is a very diverse school

In my opinion, campus food at mcgill is way overpriced and the food is average at best. By far the best dining hall food is located at RVC

Tons of alcohol at McGill, which is to be expected with the drinking age of 18. Lots of people smoke weed, and hard drugs are easy to come by, also to be expected since McGill is in a large city, Montreal

Great facilities such as a large gym, sports fileds, etc., however there is definitely a lack of school spirit. practically no one goes to sports events

No large cafeteria, which is nice. There are lots of small cafeterias and restaurants on campus

Biology Major: Professors are very knowledgeable and interesting. There is not a whole lot of work during the semester, but the workload is immense during midterms and finals. You will do very little for about a month and then have 2-3 weeks of hell

McGill is one of the most diverse universities in the world. It is made up of roughly 10% Americans, 15% international, and the rest Canadian

There is, literally, always something to do. Often, there are multiple things to do. Even more often, there are so many things to do and exciting things going on -- on campus and off -- that it's difficult to discipline yourself and get your work done! But I think at the end of the day that that's a good thing :)

Drugs are a choice that you make - no one is going to stop you from using them. If you want them, they're there. Time to use your own judgement.

You can walk everywhere you could possibly need to go. Campus is also very walkable. Montreal is also a great city for biking when it's not winter (about 6 months of the year...). And for places you want to go which are out of walking distance, cabs, subway (metro), and buses are easy to take.
College Sophomore 2013-05-08T15:07:21Z
You're in Montreal. There are all sorts of different foods, restaurants - many within walking distance or easy to get to by public transport. A decent amount of 24 hour places. And, off-campus>on-campus dining, every time.
College Sophomore 2013-05-08T15:04:09Z
On campus computers are fairly slow, and printing on campus always somehow becomes a hassle.
College Sophomore 2013-05-03T21:55:37Z
There are so many great locations to live off campus. There is a great student community and the prices are great (much cheaper than Rez)!
College Sophomore 2013-04-25T21:55:56Z
Montreal is great on foot. During the spring, fall and summer months the abundance of bike lanes makes Montreal easy on bike as well. Public transport is decent if you need it and taxis are always around.

Health & Safety:
McGill public safety is always present on campus and in the surrounding neighborhoods without ever imposing on the freedom of students. They answer questions and help you navigate your way through campus .

Montreal is an amazing food city. BYOB restaurants abound and the international population means you can find high-quality offerings from traditional Canadian to Afghan. There is also a plethora of cheap tasty food, both chains and non-chains.

McGill is a hugely international school - a good 25% of students there are international, and while predominantly American I still met and befriended people from Moldova to Kenya my first week there. There are also a lot of opportunities to study with both "rock star" caliber professors as well as do things like work with human cadavers in a 200-level anatomy course. It's also a lot more affordable than any American counterpart, most comparable to an in-state school.

Beautiful historic campus and for the most part consolidated main campus

Public Transit in Montreal is excellent - reliable, extensive, and cheap. The only downside is that it is not 24 hours.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
