Administration and governance

Our campus is Montreal

A university’s impact is not measured only by its international reputation, but also by its contribution to local life. By building bridges throughout the city, we expand the scope of our research and enrich the education we provide in every field. That’s the unique experience we offer: a decidedly “Montreal” university that is also truly universal.
