Solin Hall living room

Solin Hall

Solin Hall

The hall is located southwest of McGill's downtown campus close to the Atwater Market, where fresh produce, baked goods, dairy and meat items are available, and to the beautiful Lachine Canal, which is perfect for walking, cycling, rollerblading or relaxing. Most students choose to purchase a monthly Metro/bus pass, which covers the daily 4-stop subway commute from Solin to the main campus.

A former chocolate factory, Solin Hall was renovated for student living in 1990. Solin Hall is the ideal choice for the student who desires the experience of living in a university residence but is also prepared to explore the exciting possibilities of living on one's own.
