McGill University is located in the heart of downtown Montreal, with its main gates (the Roddick Gates) at the intersection of Sherbrooke and McGill College. Looking North from the Roddick Gates, the Arts Building is the century-old limestone building with the cupola flying the McGill flag. Registration for the CEA Annual Meeting will be in the lobby of the Stephen Leacock Building, which is connected on its east side to the Arts Building. Sessions will be held in various classrooms located within the Leacock and Arts Buildings. A map of the campus is available.
All social functions, including the CWEN and Purvis luncheons and the receptions on Friday and Saturday evenings, will be held in the McGill University Faculty Club. It is located just Southwest of the Stephen Leacock Building, on the West side of McTavish Street (3450 McTavish Street).
For those arriving to Montreal by air, there are two easy ways to get to the downtown core. A taxi from Dorval Airport to downtown will cost about $30. A shuttle bus will cost about $10.
For those arriving by train, Central Station, the main VIA Rail station, is located underneath the Queen Elizabeth Hotel, about 4 blocks due South of the McGill campus.
All of the hotels with space booked for the CEA Meetings are within easy walking distance of the McGill campus. For those planning on bringing or renting cars, you will find parking near McGill a challenge. There is some parking available on the campus itself (drive in the Roddick Gates) at a daily charge of about $12.
