Hi Campus Life & Engage!

Designed to complement and build on our McGill 101 modules, these webinars give you a chance to learn about the services and resources available to you as a new McGill student. A full schedule can be found on the Your First Year at McGill website or in McGill 101. We’ll also be sending you webinar reminders - check out the “Attend” section of our emails!





Our pre-arrival webinars help demystify every aspect of the McGill experience, from course registration to healthcare! Join us for:

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee (hoh-DEE-noh-SHoh-nee) and Anishinabeg (Ah-nish-ih-nah'-bey) nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
