Me too. Im between new rez and carrefour, and i cant decide :( new rez is far from campus but from what ive heard its more vibrant and social, and is often described as a "party dorm". But the noise might render studying hard & be overall irritating. however, it is close to the school's gigantic gym, which is an important factor for me. carrefour has it's own small gym though. Im not considering upper rez because the rooms dont have their private bathrooms.
I live in Upper Rez now, and am moving out this summer. I honestly could not have loved my experience more because of McConnell. Upper rez just has the most wonderful attitude and sense of community and it's so fun. I'm really going to miss it.
There is a campus bar, although other than that there isn't much. A lot of students come to downtown on weekends to have fun.
Ok that's good to hear and is there a shuttle that takes you in and is it still around like late night to get you back or do you have to pay for a cab or something

McGill is in Montréal. That should be sufficient to explain how absolutely amazing the nightlife here is. However, a general description might be useful. Montréal, and specifically the Montréal around McGill's campus, is filled with hip bars, clubs, and lounges. If you like good beer, there are places that brew their own. If you like techno, there are after hours at clubs that attract famous DJs. Is retro your thing? There are a couple retro-styled lounges and retro-themed nights clubs. Basically, whatever you like to do, Montréal has something appealing.
McGill, itself, does not have that many parties. Pregaming with your friends in the dorm or your apartment is the most common kind of gathering. Buying drinks at bars or clubs can get expensive, so pregaming is the student's best method for saving money. There are some frat parties, but actually going out on the town usually takes precedence unless you belong to the frat or have friends who do. Once everyone moves off campus, house parties do become more prevalent. Still, the thing that makes McGill so great is having the city around you; most students spend most of their weekends (and some weekdays) seeing what it has to offer.
