New Residence Hall


"New Rez" is situated in the heart of the Milton-Parc Community, and was formerly a Renaissance-Montreal hotel.

New Rez is located quite close to McGill's athletics facilities, two major grocery stores, pharmacies, numerous convenience stores, a repertory movie theatre, restaurants and, of course, Montreal's lively downtown.

Rooms are fully furnished and feature air conditioning and double beds in most double rooms (some single rooms even have queen size beds!). On each floor, students can relax in the TV lounge or prepare a little snack in the adjacent kitchenette. A study lounge can also be found on every floor. The magnificent lobby offers a very comfortable lounge and a grand piano.

The fabulous location, on-site cafeteria and many in-house and nearby services will make this a convenient place for students to live in their first year at McGill. Floor Fellows on every floor, an active residence hall council and tons of common rooms help turn this home-away-from-home into a lively community.
