Student Life

Just as the eyes are the windows of the soul, so are we your point of contact for all that is student life. If you have any questions regarding housing, classes, life in Montreal, or merely want to complain about grad life, we’ve got you covered.  As graduate students of Macdonald campus, we are members of both PGSS and MCGSS entailing you to the social support structures of both campuses.
