Student Matching Programs

Want to hear it all from someone in the know?

New student matching programs pair senior undergraduate students with new undergraduate students to help them navigate their first year of studies and life at McGill. These senior students are a wealth of experience and information and are happy to communicate with incoming students prior to their arrival in order to address any questions or concerns about McGill’s academic and social life. 

To be paired with an upper-year student, please make a request through:

  • Étudiant Francophone (CEGEP francophones): Ambassadeur à la vie étudiante (Vie sur le campus et engagement étudiant) Pour une demande de jumelage remplisez  ce questionnaire.
  • New Canadian students: Student Life Ambassador program (from Campus Life & Engagement) Request to be matched to an upper year student by completing this form.
  • New International students: International Student Buddy program (from International Student Services)

If you are an upper-year student and are interested in volunteering as a Student Life Ambassador, then please complete this form.
