McGill Residences – Mac Campus (Laird Hall and EcoResidence)


McDonald Campus. Better known as Mac campus, MacDonald Campus Residence is made up Laird Hall and the Eco Rez, which is almost entirely composed recycled materials. Located on the
western tip of the island of Montreal, in the town of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Mac
campus has a mix of dorm and apartment-style residences perfect for any Mac student. Let’s look at
Laird Hall first. Laird Hall is a mixed-gender residence,
with wings separated by gender. Both single and double rooms are
available. Further, having a mix of undergraduate and graduate
students makes Laird Hall a diverse community. Each room in Laird
Hall has a bed, desk, chair, drapes, dresser, closet, and a
mini fridge. All bathrooms are gendered and public, meaning you
share with people of the same gender on your floor. There are huge communal kitchens
each floor that have toasters, microwaves and fridges for student use.
Further, each floor has its own TV room for movie
marathons and games rooms for some friendly competition. Laird Hall even has study rooms for
group study sessions. Need groceries? Bike rentals and
shuttles are available to take students to town for shopping trips every week. Now on to the Eco Rez. Eco Rez
apartment are co-ed and available in two or six bedroom units.
Each room includes a bed, desk, chair, dresser, drapes and
a closet. Bathrooms are private, meaning you’re only sharing with your roommates. All Eco Rez apartments have spacious
living room and dining room areas, as well as a full
kitchen for cooking with your roommates. Further, Eco Rez’s focus on
sustainability means heating and ventilation is designed in
a way to maximize energy conservation. There’s also a focus on recycling and compost
programs. Compost from the residence is even used to
fertilize campus gardens. And if you have a car or bike, both units offer
parking passes and bike storage. Just steps away from Mac
Campuses main buildings, Laird Hall and Eco Rez offer a sense of
community to Mac Campus, all while remaining sustainable and
comfortable.
