Not only is McGill University a great campus to walk around and enjoy, but you can stay in their student accommodation in the very central Sherbrooke Street. We did so and it was one of the best accommodations we used during our trip across Canada....More

I definitely recommend taking a look around the grounds of the Harvard of Canada! It's centrally located and easy to combine with a visit to Mount Royal Park. The architecture is beautiful and the university isn't too large to get around on foot.

Took in this large University, what a beautiful sight to see. This University is one of the top in North America. If you get a chance to see the Library make sure to check it out.

Expected a bit more from a University as exalted as McGill. Thought it would be a bit like Harvard, but it was kind of sad. Buildings we went into were run down, hopefully the campus will look better when all the construction is done. Dorm...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

We stayed in old Montreal which was a good 35 minute walk from McGill. I would highly recommend staying in OM but not if you have to get to McGill daily.

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.
