Annual Reports


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

See also the McGill campus maps page to locate other buildings and units on campus.

By Public Transport, Metro or Bus or Bike

Take the Green Line train to McGill Station located at intersection of University and Maisonneuve streets. Exit to University Street and walk north (i.e., uphill) to McConnell and Trottier. The fare is $2.50 Canadian. Many different buses can also be taken to get to McGill including the 15, 24, 61, 125, 144, and 168. See the links below for more information. A city bike system called BIXI is also available throughout much of the year. Access to the system for one day is $5, and there are numerous bike stations throughout the city on city bike paths including one at the Milton entrance to McGill.
