Life Beyond McGill Residences

Working with Student Housing and Hospitality Services, the Life Beyond McGill Residences orientation event is built to help students prepare and plan for life outside of a McGill residence. This year, due to the pandemic, the event will take place virtually over the weekend of February 13-14, 2021. Off-campus and grad students are also welcome but spaces are limited!

The main purpose of this event is to help make the transition of students living in residences moving to off-campus locations as smooth as possible through workshops, presentations, and promotion of programs or services available to them from the McGill and Montreal community. Furthermore, students will be encouraged to stay involved with the McGill community by attending this event.

February 13-14, 2021

Registration now closed. Please refer to the Resources section of this webpage for presentation slides, recordings and resources.
