The Université de Montréal has had a presence in Laval, in the heart of the Cité du savoir, since 2011. The campus offers complete programs in health and education, as well as services designed especially for its students.
UdeM campus in the Mauricie region is the first decentralized campus in Canada where students can complete their entire medical training, from their preparatory year to a residence in family medicine.
The Université de Montréal can count on valuable partnerships in health care with some 20 hospitals and university institutes, including the CHUM and CHU Sainte-Justine hospitals.
Our professors, researchers and students can take advantage of specialized off-campus facilities. Here are a few of them.
The observatory is located in the Mont-Mégantic provincial park, in Notre-Dame-des-Bois, in the Eastern Townships. It houses experimental astrophysics laboratories and the famous telescope.
The biology station is located in Saint‐Hippolyte, in a wooded and mountainous part of the lower Laurentians. The protected area is ideal for observing the environmental effects of climate change.
The plant biology research institute and the Biodiversity Centre are located at the Montréal Botanical Garden. Researchers there study aspects of plant biology ranging from molecular biology to ecology, from both fundamental scientific and applied viewpoints.
