There's nothing quite like seeing things with your own eyes.
Tour the campus, talk with your student guide and get a first hand idea of what it's like to be a McGill student.
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.
* NEWLY ADMITTED STUDENTS: Please register for your tour by logging into your Admitted Students profile in McGill in Mind (Tip: Your username is your 9-digit McGill ID number, and your password is your Minerva PIN).
The Welcome Centre can arrange special downtown campus tours for groups of students and counsellors. Group tours can be arranged upon request, with a minimum of one week in advance.
Please include the following information with your request. The Welcome Centre will contact you to finalize the details:
- Name of group/school
- Home city
- Number of students & current year of study (ex. 11 students, Grade 11)
- Number of counsellors & parents
- Requested date of visit and suggested time (am/pm)
