I stayed at the Residences with the students for a month and my experience was basic. I wasn't expecting much for the low rates I was paying and I was honestly not surprised at all. The rooms were basic with a closet, a work desk and a bed. The mattress was too hard for comfort. I did not need a... More

The photos shown on UQAM's website when advertising the French immersion programs are absolutely false. There is no living space at all since the living area shown has been walled off to create a 3rd bedroom. The result is a kitchen without any ventilation about 7 x 7 ft square. The kitchen is not equipped at all unless you nag... More

Where to begin.....first they tried to move us (after booking 6 months in advance) to another facility on the other side of town, then when we arrived, we were placed in a 2 bedroom apartment instead of 2 separate studios (which should be $50 cheaper). Both the bath tub and kitchen drain were clogged so when you were in the... More

The "hotel" has a good location being steps away from historic city with many nice places to be seen. It was clean, and very cheap. If you are with a large family or group, and like to bring your stuff, and could leave with something around 2 stars, will save quite a bit. Other than that the place is quite... More

We came not expecting much and were rewarded with even less. I've stayed in student halls before, but none as grim as this. The check-in was chaotic and despite having paid the first night of our two night stay some three months previously, I had to sign the credit card slip from three months ago (why?). Sadly the filing system... More

I stayed here for a little over a month last July - August 2012. I stayed in one of the rooms of 8 people. It has 3 bathrooms (only two with showers) and there was sometimes a wait time, but mostly have three bathrooms for 8 girls was enough! The kitchen has the bare essentials, as in appliances. So bring... More

This place is by far the worst place that I have EVER stayed in. I get that it is a residence and that the price is cheap but it sure was not worth it AT ALL. Only positives - Location was good (however, but I would rather stay in any other motel-hotel-hostel then stay here again). First off it was... More

My sister and I shared a studio residence room during the 2012 Jazz festival in July. We were attracted by the low price of the room ($65 plus tax) and we figured the rooms would lack most of the bells and whistles of a regular hotel or motel. We got less than our expectations. The room was very small (normal... More

We stayed at UQAM the weekend of July 23-24, on Friday and Saturday night. The online booking process seemed simple enough, but there was a lot of information missing/unclear/hard to find. We were not told how or when our payment would be processed (they charged the first night upon booking, and the rest of the amount at check-in). We were... More
