Housing and settling in







On this page:


McGill Student Housing offers a variety of accommodations that reflect the diversity of our student population. While facilities vary from building to building, the sense of community that characterizes the "rez" community remains constant.

If you have been admitted to a program offered on the Downtown campus, check out Downtown Rez for descriptions, photos and videos of our residences in the downtown area.

If you have been admitted to a Macdonald campus program, you will want to take a look at our Macdonald Campus Rez.

Not staying in Rez? If you are looking for an apartment near McGill, or for tips and information about renting in Montreal, then head over to McGill Off Campus Housing.


Hall assignments for all eligible first year students are determined by lottery.

To ensure your spot in the lottery draw, you must confirm your room reservation and pay your residence deposit before June 3rd.

Living on the Downtown Campus?  Consult Downtown Residence Admission.

Living on the Macdonald Campus? Consult Macdonald Residence Admission.

Food and Dining Services offer various meal plan options. There is one that is sure to fit your needs. These declining-balance meal plans work much like debit cards, making it quick and easy to pay for your food.
