Montreal study spots

Montreal is a great city for young people. It boasts a number of universities and CEGEPS and is exceptional for student life. As a student, there’s always work to be done, so I try to keep an eye out for nice places to study. I love McGill spots, but I also like to branch out once in awhile.

On campus, there’s McLennan (of course) which is huge and a good place to focus and get through work. It also houses a course reserve section, so if some of your textbooks are there, you don’t have to worry about lugging them to the library. There’s also the Ferrier computer lab which is awesome to study at. It’s usually not too busy and is conveniently located on Ferrier’s 3rd floor. 

Off campus study spots are also really nice. I love going to cute cafes as I search for the best drinks. I think Nocturne, Origine, and Tommy have great lattes. Nocturne is a bit on the smaller side, but it’s pretty close to the McGill bubble. Origine is also conveniently located at St. Laurent and Sherbrooke and is a fun cafe to try out. Tommy, in Old Port,  is really bright and filled with plants which is wonderful. 

With study places, find what works for you. Cafes are great to write papers in my experience while libraries are better to hunker down to study. They also have the nice bonus of being free. Try out different places around McGill and Montreal, figure out what you like best, and then study!
