Concordia is a large, urban university in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The university's two campuses are set approximately 7 km apart: Sir George Williams campus in the downtown core of Montreal, and Loyola campus in the residential west-end of Montreal. They are connected by a free shuttle bus service for students, faculty and staff.
Sir George Williams Campus, located in the heart of Montreal, is within walking distance to movie theatres, shops, the underground city, and public transportation. It is an urban campus, having developed around an existing downtown core. The visual arts, the John Molson School of Business, and Engineering and Computer Science are housed downtown, as well as many Arts and Science programs.
The west-end campus, Loyola, is located 7 km away in a leafy residential neighbourhood, with gothic-style buildings that date to the early-20th century. The performing arts and Communication Studies and Journalism are housed exclusively at Loyola, and many other programs, including the sciences in a state-of-the-art building, offer courses on this campus as well. Some student residences are to be found at Loyola, as well as the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall, a theatre and a chapel.
Concordia considers the city of Montreal to be an invaluable asset for the university experience. It has a population of three and a half million, and is one of the oldest cities in North America and one of the world’s largest French-speaking cities.
While French is the predominant language, there is also a large English-speaking population. Many ethno-cultural communities also help maintain a vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Quebec universities offer the lowest tuition fees in Canada and a high-calibre post-secondary education. Combined with a low cost of living in Montreal, studying at Concordia is good value, especially when compared to many other universities.
Concerts, films, plays, art shows and athletic events are plentiful. Highlights include:
- 90 festivals, including the Montreal Jazz festival, Blue Metropolis literary festival and the Just for Laughs comedy festival
- The Montreal music scence
- The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, and the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal.
- Home of the Cirque du Soleil
There is a 1000-acre mountain in the heart of the city, with parks, jogging and bike paths available.You can also retreat to the nearby Laurentian Mountains or the Eastern Townships. Once there, you can do everything from windsurfing to skiing (alpine, as well as cross-country), or just explore the beautiful countryside. It’s all within an hour or two of Montreal.
