Essential information for students

Our priorities are keeping you safe and ensuring you can access the high quality student life and learning that McGill is known for.


All students


Students on campus

  • Read our general health guidelines and the guidelines specifically for McGill students before coming on campus.
  • All individuals on our campuses are now required to wear a procedural mask at all times when in any indoor shared space. The University will provide procedural masks to all students, faculty and staff coming to our campuses, and individuals who would prefer to bring their own procedural masks will be permitted to do so. There are a few exceptions to this rule - learn more and view a list of mask distribution locations here.
  • Bring your Student ID card and a bottle of hand sanitizer.
  • Study hubs are open in select libraries across campus for safe, individual study. The Library website has information on hours and how to book a time slot.
  • If you are travelling between the downtown and Macdonald campuses on the shuttle, you must register first on McGill’s Transport website.


International Students

  • International students with valid documentation can now travel to Canada to study at McGill. You'll still need to self-isolate for 14 days and present a quarantine plan at the border. Learn more here.
  • Quarantining? Check out these resources.
  • Read through International Student Services' helpful FAQs on immigration, health insurance, and more.
