You'll feel right at home on our campuses before long, but until then Campus Life & Engagement (the First-Year Office) is here to help you acclimatize, settle in and find the people and services you need.  And, once you've arrived on campus, we're here to support you throughout the year through monthly first-year newsletters, by providing transition and academic workshops along with networking and volunteer opportunites that will help you stay successful in both your academic and social lives at McGill.

Browse through the links in the left-hand menu to find all the information you'll need to kick off your academic career at McGill. If you can't find what you're looking for, feel free to contact us (see bottom right of the page) and we'll help you straight away. And throughout your first year at McGill, if ever you don't know where to go for answers, start with us!
