Really love to go through that area when walking from St-Laurent Street to the business district. Easy and very relaxing walk. St-Laurent , going through the McGill Ghetto and just walking through that campus, and voila, we are in the business district on Sherbrook Street. Beautiful, relaxing and nice.

A must for any Montreal visit is a stroll through McGill Campus. Enter through Roddick Gates and make sure to visit the Redpath Museum onsite.

Not only is McGill university a great institute of higher learning, it has a beautiful campus. Great for a stroll or a picnic! Many of the older buildings are beautiful from an architectural perspective

The premier university in Canada (tough on UoT!), life in Montreal as a young person: it really can't get much better. I had my choir of institutions: I'm glad I chose McGill and so should you if you have the brains & grades. (I am completely lost for why McGill is being reviewed on Tripadvisor)

Since I studied here I may be bias, but this university is STUNNING. I even named my fb album 'my beautiful university. The architecture, the scenery, the location, the statues and even the trees are all beautiful and appealing. Can't rave enough - even if you just went for a walk around the grounds.

Located in the area bounded by Sherbrooke Street, University, Peel and the mountain, this institution of higher learning has a large green space for a campus. The Redpath Museum is an art form in itself, the architecture is luscious. Go inside and meet the dinosaur. .

You can only enjoy here when it's scorching hot. Sit on the grass and drink drink and smoke. Great buildings and grounds

Liked the University but everything was closed. The bookstore/shop was also low on inventory. Next time go when the Unversity is open.
