Off-Campus & Commuter Students

"Off-Campus Connects" Orientation Event Monday, August 26, 2019

Off-Campus Connects welcomes all off-campus first-year students for an introduction to Montreal, McGill, and the week ahead!
Whether you are an off-campus first-year, transfer student of any age, native Montrealer who already knows this city like the back of your hand, or an exchange student, come and join us for a day of informative (and fun) activities and the chance to meet other off-campus students with similar experiences throughout their McGill careers.

Registration for Off-Campus Connects takes place on the McGill Orientation Week site. Make sure to keep an eye out for and join the McGill Off-Campus Connects 2019 Facebook event and the Facebook group to stay updated on the event and to start connecting with other attendees. Watch for an e-mail in July from Campus Life & Engagement providing you with the links.
