.Around Berri Metro, this University was created on the premise of giving access to Higher Education to Workers..I studied Law there spo I have used the Facilities abundantly. Their Library at the Pavillon Judith Jasmin is great, although since the new Bibliotheque Nationale opened next door, I go there now, to check on Mags, Movies, Books and Newspapers. UQAM has integrated an old Church Steeple in its St Denis Facade. Across it, is the old Ecole Polytechnique (now on the UdeMtl Campus). The magnificent limestone building now houses UQAM'S Business School. UQAM also has a great Coop (on Ste Catherine, 3 blocks west of St Denis) , a good place to buy a Laptop, printer..etc.,Direct access underground to the Berri Metro makes this great in Winter or Rainy Days. Several art Exhibits are usually on-going..but all in French. .
