Beautiful Mount Royal Park provides the backdrop for these residence halls, located just north of McGill's main campus. Constructed in 1962, McConnell, Molson and Gardner Halls join Douglas Hall to bring together over 800 students in one neighborhood. This ideal location, referred to as “Upper Rez,” leaves the commotion of urban Montreal behind, providing privacy and a genuine feeling of community amongst residents.
McConnell, Molson and Gardner Halls surround the Bishop Mountain Hall cafeteria. BMH is strategically placed so that residents of all three halls can take their meals in one central location, further enhancing the sense of community.
Nature lovers and those with athletic inclinations will love the combination of green space and easy access to McGill's athletic facilities that Upper Rez provides.
