Life in Residence

The transition from living at home to living in residences is a big step for many of our first year students. McGill's residences create a respectful, supportive, and lively environment that becomes a new home for students, providing a community foundation within which they can grow and flourish personally, socially and academically. There are many opportunities for leadership in the residence community, and these positions often lead to other pivotal roles as leading citizens of the University.
