Key First-Year Services

Campus Life & Engagement

Campus Life & Engagement (CL&E) is your go-to resource for any and all questions about McGill, and Montreal. Our office staff go out of their way to find you the information you need. When you have a question, or don’t know where to go, drop into, email, or call Campus Life & Engagement. CL&E is also the home to McGill's First-Year Coordinator and First-Year Assistant to Francophone Students, and plays a central role in planning Orientation events for new students.
Take note: 
Campus Life & Engagement is the new name for what was known as the First-Year Office. If you hear anyone mention that name, that’s us! We still offer you all the great support we did when we were the FYO – and now more (hence the name change).
