The Oratory, a number of prestigious faculties and the main library of Université de Montréal, the Café Campus and two library-stationery shops impart a magic aura to the summit of Côte-des-Neiges. This city block, no bigger than a pocket handkerchief, resembles a student village.

Things to do
To savour this colourful environment fully, take a stroll on Monkland Avenue, Sherbrooke and Victoria Streets or Côte-des-Neiges Road. These streets are at the heart of the economic and cultural life of their neighbourhoods, which feel more like urban villages than city districts. The students who attend Université de Montréal, Collège Notre-Dame, and Collège Jean-de-Bréboeuf have transformed the Queen Mary–Côte-des-Neiges sector into a beehive of activity.
