Living in a residence community is an option available to students who will be in Montreal this semester. While this year is unique in the global pandemic context, we're committed to offering you a safe, inclusive, and supportive living environment.
The Residence Life team is excited to welcome you to McGill's student-centred residence communities. They've worked hard to plan community-building programming that observes all public health and safety regulations.
Looking for the perfect place to live off-campus? Whether you need specific rental information, apartment listings, or tips and tricks for renting in Montreal, consult the many resources available to you.
Food on campus
New dining hall safety measures have been put in place to respect social distancing measures and to mitigate the risks of COVID transmission. Keeping students and staff safe is the highest priority.
Housing services available remotely
For students who commute to and from McGill, the Off-Campus & Commuter Student Support website offers a wealth of information on topics including transit, parking, on-campus resources, legal support and more.
Moving to a new city during a global pandemic can be a stressful and confusing time. To make this process easier, Campus Life and Engagement has created a guide about transitioning to Montreal. In the guide you'll find information on how to find and rent an apartment in Montreal, as well as how to be a good neighbour, precautions you can take to keep yourself and others safe, and a host of legal resources.
Additional campus food service information
As always, McGill's food and dining services will continue to prepare fresh and healthy meals with a focus on local sourcing of quality ingredients. Residential dining hall menus are posted weekly. If you have any special dietary concerns, please contact Food Services.
The Residential Mandatory Meal Plan is the only meal plan currently offered to students living in campus residences.
The oneCard account is available to any student who wants to purchase meals on campus without the hassle of carrying cash and debit cards.
