Saying ‘au revoir’ to Old Chancellor Day Hall: The Faculty of Law is moving!

Old Chancellor Day Hall, the Faculty of Law’s most iconic building, is closing at the end of June for 16 months as we undertake much-needed renovations to upgrade the building’s heating, electrical systems, plumbing, windows and more, while respecting its historical features.

Faculty and staff who were in OCDH have been relocated either to New Chancellor Day Hall and 3674-3690 Peel Street, or to rented office space near McGill University’s Roddick Gates at 2001 McGill College Avenue, suite 750.
