The Grey Nuns Residence

The Grey Nuns Residence is a magnificent heritage building in the heart of Montreal’s vibrant downtown. This former convent, now a Concordia University student residence, opens to the public during summer offering simple, clean and secure accommodations at unbeatable rates.

All our rooms are private – meaning you’ll never be sharing a dorm, hostel-style with strangers. Most have sinks, with shared co-ed washrooms in the hallway, or we have a small number of rooms with private ensuite bathrooms. Stay connected at all times with our free, high-speed wifi and if you have questions or need advice, help is on hand 24/7.

Located just steps from the shops and restaurants of Ste Catherine Street, Grey Nuns is within easy reach of all that Montreal has to offer; walk to Mount Royal for amazing views of the city, head for the cobbled streets and boutiques of the Old Port or experience the summer festivals in Place des Arts.

And if you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, unwind in our beautiful private garden with ancient shade trees and a wildlife pond. Whether you’re staying for 1 night or 3 months, the Grey Nuns Residence is a unique place, in a unique city and is sure to make your stay a memorable one.
