A sprawling and active campus located in the heart of downtown Montreal. Also one of the better universities in Canada if not in the world. Worth a visit and a stroll through the lovely grounds. Pay particular attention the the vast array of trees that have been donated and planted throughout the years that grace the McGill campus today. Enjoyable... More

An excellent place for a decent sprint/walk of a good University campus. While you may say people playing soccer and studying on the sides the campus gives you the historical side of the buildings specially on a sunny day, lots of greenery and a beautiful park. It is a good university for higher studies as well.

Take a walk in the campus on a sunny day, and you will feel like a student again! The central "park" is quite beautiful :)

One of the best in Canada in virtually all fields. My Alma Mater for Dentistry Class of '66. Set in a very green area in the heart of Montreal close to metro , shopping and many livable quarters for students. Because of various government restrictions the fees for all Faculties have to be among the lowest in North America.

I'm not sure I should be rating a place that I'm not attending but here it goes. The architecture is amazing and it is huge taking up several blocks.
