Royal Victoria College

Founded in 1899, Royal Victoria College was originally the women's college of McGill, where women both lived and studied. As of Fall 2010, RVC is no longer designated an all-female residence. The tower of RVC has mixed gender accommodations on every floor and the west wing continues to be female-only housing. Living at RVC brings you close to practically everything you need. Not only are you minutes away from downtown Montreal, you are also immediately across the street from main campus.

There are several common rooms, including 2 TV rooms, a games room, an aerobics room, a study room and a large lounge that serves as a meeting place for people who want to chat, watch movies, or just hang out. Residents of RVC enjoy the convenience of a newly-renovated state-of-the-art cafeteria located in-house, and may take comfort knowing that security is provided 24/7. There is no curfew and guests are welcome in the hall, provided they are accompanied by a resident.
