Family/Parents of New Students

Arriving at McGill is a big event—not just for students, but for parents, guardians, and families as well!

Have questions?

If you have any other questions, parents, guardians, and family members of new students are encouraged to call Campus Life & Engagement (CL&E).

Campus Life & Engagement (CL&E) is your go-to resource for any and all general 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 support team and First-Year Assistant to Francophone Students and plays a central role in planning Orientation events for new students.

Opening hours:
Monday-Friday: 10:00am - 4:30pm (Due to COVID-19, we are currently operating virtually. Please call and/or email.)
