About McGill University

McGill University is a public research university in Montreal, Canada, officially founded by royal charter in 1821. The University bears the name of James McGill, a prominent Montreal merchant from Scotland whose bequest in 1813 formed precursory McGill College.

McGill's main campus is set at the foot of Mount Royal in Downtown Montreal with the second campus, situated near fields and forested lands in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, 30 kilometres west of the downtown campus on the Montreal Island. All the academic units are organized into 11 main Faculties and Schools, and the institution is one of the two members of Association of American Universities located outside the United States. Valued at $34,729 per student, the University maintains one of the largest endowments among Canadian universities on a per-student basis.

McGill offers degrees and diplomas in over 300 fields of study. Most students are enrolled in five larger Faculties, namely Arts, Science, Medicine, Engineering, and Management, with the highest entering grade of any Canadian university. Tuition fees vary significantly between in-province, out-of-province, and international students, and the scholarships are very generous yet highly competitive and relatively difficult to attain, compared to other Canadian universities.

Campus

Downtown campus:

McGill's main campus is situated in downtown Montreal at the foot of Mount Royal. Most of its buildings are situated in a park-like campus located north of Sherbrooke Street and south of Pine Avenue between Peel and Aylmer streets. The campus also extends west of Peel Street for several blocks, starting north of Doctor Penfield; the campus also extends east of University Street, starting north of Pine Avenue, an area that includes McGill's Percival Molson Memorial Stadium and the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital. The community immediately east of University Street and south of Pine Avenue is known as the McGill Ghetto, where a large number of students reside. The campus is near the Peel and McGill Metro stations. A major downtown boulevard, McGill College Avenue, leads up to the Roddick Gates, the university's formal main entrance. All of the major university buildings were constructed using local grey limestone, which serves as a unifying element.

The downtown campus is located on Mount Royal, near the residence halls and the Montreal Neurological Institute.
