The UQAM residence and Academic Center are located downtown and are only 12 minutes apart from each other. Just go up Saint-Laurent street, two blocks east of the residence and you will find coffee shops, clothing stores, bars, banks and restaurants. A few blocks further is Saint-Denis Street where you will find even more shops and food. Walk south from the Residence and you hit Chinatown and the old port. A short distance south and then west and you’ll hit the downtown core. If walking isn’t your thing (which I completely understand in the dead of winter) there is an excellent public transportation system.
