McGill University Residence Halls
Lonely Planet review
Over summer McGill opens its student residence halls to travelers seeking budget accommodations. Lodging is in one of four different buildings, including the uninspiring 1960s New Residence Hall, the greystone Bishop Mountain Hall and the more inviting Solin Hall, near the Atwater market and the Lachine Canal. The latter offers studios and two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments (with no air-conditioning), rented either per room with shared facilities, or for the entire apartment. The other halls are basic student dorms, with a single bed and shared everything else (bathroom, kitchenettes). Bedding is usually not provided. Guests (sometimes for an extra fee) can use the university cafeteria, pool, gym and tennis courts.
