Living in Residence


The transition from living at home to living in residences is a big step for many of our first year students. McGill's residences create a respectful and supportive environment that becomes a new home for students, providing a community foundation within which they can flourish personally, socially and academically.

Virtual Tours


Each year, approximately 3,000 undergraduate students live on either the downtown or Macdonald campus. McGill Student Housing offers Modern Dormitory Style, Dormitory Style, and Shared Facility Housing residences that reflect the diversity of our
student population. Find the one that’s right for you.

The McGill housing website is a one-stop shop for everything you need to know about student housing both on campus and off.

Student Housing is a sub-unit of SHHS.
