It was fun and challenging walking through McGill University. There is a lot of construction and many steep streets. I would still recommend a visit to this top institution. There are many beautiful buildings. I visited the bookstore and the workers there were helpful.

I wanted to go to McGill University just to see the history of the buildings. I was shocked that many of the building where under construction to be restored. They received funding of 2.1M. I think they need more money for restoration of buildings on...More

I heard McGill is a phenomenal university, and one of the most reputable in the world, but not a place to visit for tourists. The campus is very small (10 minutes' walk from one end to another). There are at least three sites of constructions...More

I noticed a Metro entrance/exit on Rue Catherine and from there it would be about a five block walk. I would suggest downloading a metro map from Montreal's transportation site.
