The University of Montréal is located in the Côte-des-Neiges Neighbourhood. Both days will take place in the Jean-Brillant building (Campus map); the first day in the amphitheatre B-2325 on the second floor and the Bootcamp in the computer lab B-1215 on the ground floor.
Planning your trip
Whether you are arriving by bus, train or plane, we invite you as usual to contact Renée Rocan to assist you in planning your DLI travel arrangements.
Getting to the University From Downtown
The University of Montreal is on the blue metro line (Map of metro stations), a very short walk from either Université de Montréal or Côte-des-Neiges stations. If you are coming from downtown, taking the metro requires 2 transfers (green line > orange line > blue line to the Côte-des-Neiges station). If you are near the Guy Metro, we recommend taking the 165 bus at the corner of Guy/Maisonneuve, right across from the John Molson School of Business where IASSIST will take place. The bus ride should take 20 minutes to the Côte-des-Neiges / Jean-Brillant stop. Then just a short walk on Jean-Brillant will get you right to the Pavillon Jean-Brillant.
For the energetic who would like to walk up the Mount-Royal which seperates the campus from downtown, it is possible, but it will take you almost an hour (with a slight chance of getting lost).
Getting around – Public transit
You can pay cash (exact change : $3.25) for a bus/metro passage or choose amongst a variety of bus passes (1 day, 3 days, weekly, especially recommended to those coming from the airport and planing to take the shuttle bus to downtown).
Bicycles are very popular in Montreal and you can also travel around from station to station with a Bixi, Montreal’s bike sharing system.
For those also attending IASSIST, we suggest consulting the list of recommended hotels on the IASSIST website. For those coming to the DLI training only, there are 2 options just a couple of minutes away from the campus:
- Hotel Terrasse Royal (Mention group code 61045 – bloc of rooms at $129 until May 4)
- Hotel/Résidences ZUM (Economy option – university residences – with a shared bathroom (starting at $50) or private (starting at $110), first come first served! Mention IDD2018 when calling for group rate at: 514-343-8006 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
* For presenters: travel and accommodations are entirely taken care of by the DLI, please contact Renée Rocan to make your arrangements.
