Summer Residence Accommodation



McGill University offers residence accommodations in three different locations during the summer. Royal Victoria College (RVC) is situated next to main campus in the heart of downtown Montreal. Just down the street on Sherbrooke is Residence Carrefour Sherbrooke (CS), and located at the corner of avenue du Parc and Prince Arthur is New Residence Hall (NRH). In each case, McGill Residences is the perfect place to be in the summer in Montreal.

First-class shopping, restaurants, and museums are at your doorstep, with outdoor events and street festivals around every corner. The cobblestone streets and historic buildings of Old Montreal lie to the south, while to the north, Mount Royal invites you to go sunbathing, strolling, and picnicking. The sights and sounds of Montreal's many cultures are part of the vibrancy of the city.

In the traditional McGill Residences at Royal Victoria College (RVC), you will enjoy the privacy of your own bedroom, with amenities such as sheets, towels, and soap provided, yet company is nearby in the large and renovated lounge, spacious and sunny study room, TV room, and meeting rooms. Card-operated laundry facilities and public telephones are accessible to everyone. In addition, summer students have access to a communal kitchen for cooking; a limited number of utensils/pots/pans are available on loan at the front desk.

Residence Carrefour Sherbrooke (CS) offers hotel-style accommodations in McGill's newest residence located on Sherbrooke Street West; just steps from McGill's Downtown campus and the Golden Square Mile. At CS, you have the choice of a single-occupancy room with one queen-size bed or a double-occupancy room with two queen-size beds. Every room is equipped with a private washroom, air conditioning, telephone, high-speed Internet, and cable TV. Card-operated laundry is located throughout the building. CS has no public cooking facilities for summer students to use.

The New Residence Hall (NRH) also offers hotel style accommodation in the heart of the McGill student ghetto. NRH is directly connected to the Galleries du Parc shopping center with a variety of shops, grocery stores, and a movie theatre just steps away. Rooms at NRH are equipped with a telephone, cable TV, high-speed Internet, air conditioning, and a private bathroom. You also have the choice of single-occupancy rooms with a queen-size bed or double-occupancy rooms with two double beds. Card-operated laundry facilities are available on site. There are kitchen facilities throughout the building for students to use for cooking; however, all cooking utensils/pots/pans must be provided by the student.
