Canada’s McGill University, founded in 1821, is a green oasis in the heart of Montreal
With 300 buildings serving its 40,000 students, McGill University is nestled at the base of the picturesque Mount Royal. As well as state-of-the art labs and sound recording studios on its Downtown Campus, the university also has working farms, culinary laboratories and computerized greenhouses on its 1,600-acre waterfront Macdonald Campus. One of the records the university holds is that it has produced 12 Nobel prizewinners, the largest amount from any other Canadian university. Many students opt to stay in the center of Montreal for ease of access to the university.
