Macdonald Campus visits

    McGill University’s Macdonald Campus is located on the western tip of the island of Montreal in the picturesque lakeside town of Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue. Thirty to forty minutes away from downtown, this beautiful 1600 acre campus offers diverse teaching and research facilities. It has waterfront access, bike paths, a large Arboretum with walking and ski trails, and a working farm. It also offers two styles of residence on campus.

    During your visit you can explore the campus, meet with an Academic Advisor, ask questions about admissions, student life, residences and get a sense of the Macdonald Campus community.
