Directions


Here you can find directions on how to get to our facilities.

HINT: Because McGill’s downtown campus is located at the base of Mont Royal, “north” is always easy to determine - it’s simply in the direction of “uphill”.

McConnell is located on the west side of University Street, at the intersection with Milton Street. The entrance is on the other side of the building: from University Street turn west to Milton Street and walk through Milton Gates; the entrance will be on your left.


Trottier is also on the west side of University Street, a little north of McConnell, at the intersection with Prince Arthur Street. The entrance is on University Street.

Go to our Maps page to see the buildings on a map.

It is also possible to take the 747 bus from the airport to downtown. The bus takes 45 to 60 minutes depending on traffic and it runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
