Description of accommodation

The Grey Nuns Residence is a former convent, now a student residence at Concordia University. It is a beautiful heritage building in the heart of downtown Montreal. The Grey Nuns offers a unique combination of character, great location and value for money.

There are a variety of rooms available to students studying at EC Montreal with single or double occupancy. All of the rooms are clean, simple and secure just steps away from classrooms, restaurants, shops, attractions and the public transportation network.

The Grey Nuns has a large garden with a pond, picnic benches and a volleyball terrain offering a calm oasis for eating, exercise or just hanging out away from the hustle and bustle of town.

Whenever possible students are allocated to wings and floors that are exclusive to EC Montreal so they aren’t sharing with unknown guests.

Description of local area

 EC Montreal’s summer residence; The Grey Nuns, is located in the city center a few minutes away from the main campus, walking distance.

This centrally located residence is ideal for students who want the convenience of downtown living.  Shopping, restaurants, bars and coffee shops are all within walking distance.

Daytime, nighttime, anytime, Montreal’s downtown is alive and kicking.
The downtown core is the very heart of the city that pulses with the vibrant energy of its diverse inhabitants.

Safely nestled between the river and the mountain, it’s our meeting place, our boardroom, our sanctuary, our playground; where students, professionals, artists, fashionistas and tourists all converge for life’s amazing moments, special occasions, for shopping, going out, sight-seeing, clubbing, dancing and culture.

Soaring skyscrapers and heritage buildings intermingle with quaint boutiques in our compact and accessible downtown, making for a settling that is nothing less than spectacular!
