Summer Residence Accommodation

Summer Residence Accommodation



McGill University – Housing and Conference Services offers residence accommodations in three different locations during the summer:

  • Royal Victoria College (RVC) is situated next to the main campus in the heart of downtown Montreal;
  • Just down the street on Sherbrooke is Carrefour Sherbrooke (CS);
  • Located at the corner of avenue du Parc and Prince Arthur is New Residence Hall (NRH).

In each case, McGill's residences are the perfect place to be during 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-style residences at Royal Victoria College (RVC), you will enjoy the privacy of your own bedroom with a shared common bathroom on each floor. Amenities such as sheets, towels, and soap are provided, and company is nearby in the large renovated lounge, the 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, with a limited number of utensils/pots/pans available on loan at the front desk.

Carrefour Sherbrooke (CS) offers hotel-style accommodation in McGill's 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 double beds. Each guestroom is equipped with a private bathroom, air conditioning, cable TV, free local calls, and Wi-Fi Internet access. There is a card-operated laundry room and fitness centre available 24 hours per day on site. CS does not offer public cooking facilities for summer students.

The New Residence Hall (NRH) also offers hotel-style accommodation in the heart of the McGill student ghetto. NRH is directly connected to the Galeries du Parc shopping centre, 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.
