Macdonald Campus is located on the Western tip of the island of Montreal, in the town of Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue. With easy access by public transit to Montreal's downtown core, Macdonald Student Residences have the comfort and charm that comes with living in a small town, but are only a short bus or train ride away from one of Canada's most exciting urban centres.
Macdonald students find that living in residence is an ideal way to create strong bonds of friendship, to learn about people from different cultures and backgrounds, to meet people from other faculties, and to enjoy the sense of community only a group can provide.
Both the apartment-style housing of EcoResidence and the dormitory-style rooms of Laird Hall offer safe and quiet places to study, with designated quiet hours and 24h security patrol. Both are also close to campus facilities, including classrooms, the library and the many student services offered at the Centennial Centre. The amenities offered in the Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue town centre (restaurants, pubs, gas station, convenience stores, bank, etc.) are all within walking distance.
