Campus Tours

There’s nothing quite like seeing things with your own eyes. Tour the campus, talk to your student guide and get a first-hand idea of what it’s like to be a McGill student. If you can’t visit now, you can take a virtual tour.

 

 

McGill’s downtown Montreal campus is home to ten faculties and ten schools. The Macdonald campus, home to the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the School of Dietetics and Human Nutrition, is located on the western tip of the Island of Montreal, around 40 minutes by car or shuttle bus.
