Montreal: a student city
A hub for education, research and art, Montreal is a global hub for health, aerospace, biotechnology, cybersecurity and intelligent cities research. Our students benefit from an extended network of partnerships and collaborations across four major universities, corporations, think tanks and non-governmental organizations.
An island on the shores of the St. Lawrence river, Montreal’s core surrounds the central park of Mount Royal and spreads outward in a collection of unique, multicultural neighbourhoods and natural beauty connected by a modern, affordable transit system. Montreal is beautiful and bustling throughout the year, famous for its art and culture, cuisine, festivals and diverse population.
Centrally located in “Quartier-Concordia”, Sir George Williams campus is embedded in the west side of downtown Montreal. With immediate access to Guy-Concordia metro station, the campus is surrounded by cafes, restaurants, shops and museums and public art, and much more.
Concordia’s Loyola campus is in picturesque Notre-Dame-de Grace and features historic buildings, science facilities, the PERFORM centre, recreation facilities and beautiful green spaces. Students have access to a free and frequent shuttle bus between our campuses.
Representing more than 150 countries, our students come together to learn, explore and create their future. Our International Students Office has resources and services to support you throughout your graduate studies.
