Official App & AskMcGill

Helping students navigate the University is now easier thanks to two new resources. We are proud to introduce the McGill App and AskMcGill!

The initial versions of the McGill App and AskMcGill were launched to welcome the 2014-2015 academic year. In that initial phase, the content focused on new students. In October 2014, AskMcGill was enhanced to include vital information for current students. We will continue to consult with the McGill community over the next several months in an effort to further refine the tools in line with evolving student needs. Your feedback is an integral component of this continual improvement process. Please familiarize yourself with these two resources and kindly take a few minutes to give us your feedback.   

With these two additional sources of information, students are more likely to find quick answers on their own, thereby allowing staff and faculty to address more complex issues and questions.

AskMcGill, a collaborative initiative brought to you by McGill Student Life and Learning and the School of Continuing Studies, is an interactive question/response online platform that answers students' questions expressed in natural (or everyday) language, with a single, accurate and consistent reply and/or links to the McGill website when relevant.   

Take a look at AskMcGill, try it out by asking a few questions and tell us what you think!  




McGill University is on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous peoples whose presence marks this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
