First Peoples' House Residence

At McGill we are fortunate to have First Peoples' House, a meeting place and residence that gives priority to Aboriginal students in both undergraduate and graduate programs. Located in an attractive red stone building adjacent to the main campus, the House offers a comfortable and spacious atmosphere in which to live, and is also home to the First Peoples' student lounge/resource centre. For more information on living in First People's House, please contact the housing.residences [at] mcgill.ca (Residence Admissions Office) or by phone at 514-398-6368. 

Like our other shared-facilities houses, First Peoples' House offers students the privacy of their own bedroom along with the attraction of communal living, with large kitchens and common rooms where housemates gather to dine, study, watch TV or just hang out together.

Priority for accommodation at First Peoples' House is given to Aboriginal students (graduate and undergraduate) who sign a lease by July 1. Any remaining spaces are made available to graduate students. The number of spaces available each year varies, as resident students may renew their lease for the duration of their full-time studies at McGill.
