Program Description:


For the past 125 years the Université de Montréal campus, built on the slopes of Mont Royal, a vast park set in the heart of Montreal, has been part of the now multiethnic, multicultural urban landscape. The quality of life in Montreal is rated among the best in the world. Researchers and students find the environment stimulating thanks to its high-quality academic infrastructure and the caliber of the many Québecois, Canadian and international businesses that operate here.

The University of Montreal caters to more than 50,000 students, including 4,000 from 120 foreign countries. It ranks second among the 20 major Canadian universities with regard to the number of foreign students it welcomes. It has formal cooperation agreements with partners in over 50 countries worldwide.

The founders settled along the banks of the Saint-Lawrence, the majestic river that brought them here. Today as you tour the Old Port and Old Montréal, you'll find that much of what they and their ancestors built has been lovingly preserved: graceful stone buildings, stately churches and cobblestone streets. Elsewhere, historic neighborhoods are being restored so more people can live downtown, but it is being done very carefully so as to preserve the special character of each area.

Located in the heart of the campus and a few minutes from most University pavilions, Les Studios de l'Université de Montréal is a housing complex consisting of 1074 single rooms, 41 double rooms and eight rooms equipped for students in wheelchairs. Student life is rounded out with services such as common kitchens and a café, quiet study areas and laundry, games and music rooms.  More information is available at the Service des résidences web page (in French)

The Bureau du logement hors campus maintains a database of apartments and rooms available for rent near the university or in neighborhoods within easy reach by public transit (bus or subway). These lists must be consulted in their offices. More information is available at the Bureau du logement hors campus web page (in English)
