Concordia’s Sir George Williams campus is in Quartier Concordia in downtown Montreal. With the opening of the Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Integrated Complex (2005) and the John Molson School of Business building (2009), Concordia has capitalized on its academic strengths in high technology, fine arts and business studies, while contributing to urban renewal.

The Loyola Campus, in Montreal’s west-end, houses a modern science complex and a communication studies and journalism building, renovated and expanded in 2005.


In 2011, the campus welcomed two state-of-the-art research facilities: the Centre for Structural and Functional Genomics and the PERFORM Centre (Prevention, Evaluation, Rehabilitation, FORMation) dedicated to researching better health through prevention. The university has a commitment to accessibility. With 30 percent of its students enrolled part-time, many courses are available during the evening. The main library is open 24 hours a day.

The Faculty is also renowned for the small classes and interdisciplinary nature of its six schools/colleges: Liberal Arts College, Science College, Loyola College for Diversity

and Sustainability, the School of Community and Public Affairs, School of Canadian Irish Studies and the Simone de Beauvoir Institute.
