    Hey, I've been accepted into the faculty of science at McGill but I've never actually visited the university or Montreal... Does anyone here know anything about accommodation for the first year?
    I've had a look at each rez on the website and the ones I like most are La Citadelle and New Rez but I'd love to hear from someone who's at / who's visited McGill

    Very, very old information here (and I didn't visit McGill) - I'm pretty sure first year housing is guaranteed as long as you apply by deadline. No guarantees on where you end up in housing, due to it being based off a ranking system and lottery.

    You might be able to get housing for your remaining years by playing the international student card.

    Side note - beware the hill up to the biology department in winter. My parents (both alumni) have said it was torture for early morning classes because of low visibility and black ice.

    Afraid not. This was back in the 70s.
