Parking at McGill
McGill University is located in downtown Montreal, in an area with limited parking. There are four main options for parking on campus: 1) street parking; 2) metered parking; 3) pay and display parking, and 4) permit parking. Street parking is available on many streets surrounding McGill, but it can be difficult to find a spot during peak hours. Metered parking is available in some lots on campus, and the rates vary depending on the time of day. Pay and display parking is available in all visitor lots, and the rates are posted at the entrance to each lot. Permit parking is available for students, faculty, and staff, and permits can be purchased online or at the Parking Office.
