Student Life


Two unique campuses. Where adventures are made.

2 campuses map

You’ll find our downtown campus in the heart of Montreal, steps from cafés, shops, museums, bike paths, and beautiful Parc Mont-Royal. Blending historic architecture, modern buildings and plenty of green spaces, our downtown base is one of the prettiest campuses in the world. And we’ve got the substance to back up all that style. From state-of-the-art research labs to world-class recording studios, our facilities are the perfect place to get inspired and achieve great things.

Take a tour of the downtown campus

If you’re looking to learn about global issues like sustainability, food security and nutrition, Macdonald is the campus for you. Located on 1,600 acres of waterfront property in beautiful Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, it’s the largest green space on the island of Montreal. “Mac” mixes high-tech and nature, with computerized greenhouses and culinary labs alongside ski trails, a sustainable farm, and Canada’s largest arboretum.
