Campus tour group


There's nothing quite like seeing things with your own eyes.

What’s included

Downtown tours begin at the Welcome Centre, where you’ll find information about admissions, programs, and more! A current McGill student will lead your tour and speak about our buildings, life in residence, student services, library resources, and clubs and societies. While campus tours don’t include a visit to our McGill Athletics facilities due to time constraints, we encourage you to swing by before or after your tour to see all they have to offer! Reservations are not required.

It’s important to note that tours taking place during the fall and winter final exam periods don’t include visits to our McGill Residences, out of respect for students who are studying for their exams. Please check McGill’s important dates to see if your visit coincides with final exams.
