Live and study at Université de Montréal
Studying at Université de Montréal also means living in a cosmopolitan North American city with a pronounced European identity. Much appreciated for its distinctive hybrid culture, Montreal offers a socially stimulating environment where students can enjoy cultural experiences that will complement their intellectual development.
The campus, located on the flanks of Mont Royal, is in the heart of the student quarter and only a few subway stations away from the dynamic downtown core. There is instant appeal in both the multiple housing options on offer and the effective public transport system.
Over the years, Montreal has produced numerous international stars, ranging from Arcade Fire and Cirque du Soleil to Leonard Cohen and Céline Dion. The city regularly plays host to several festivals and exhibitions and is visited by dance troupes of international renown. Those with more classical tastes will certainly appreciate performances by the illustrious Montreal Symphonic Orchestra or a visit to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, while more adventurous spirits will feel right at home on Montreal’s indie music scene.
