HOUSING

Financial Management, Independent
Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I had my own house before coming to school, so living with roommates is not high on my list of things to do.
Personal comments:
Housing around campus gets easy to find around June or July, but before that be prepared to be charged a higher rate. If you could wait, wait until the summer to secure housing.

Peel Pub on St Cathrine's a great place to go for a few before going out, the best night clubs are mostly on St Laurent. Cafe Campus on a Tuesday night is a student must!

I coped pretty well.

It was a constant struggle.
Educational

Overall
Language of instruction: French
Was learning French a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
Personal comments:
Montreal is bilingual (French/English). So I had the opportunity to practice my English a lot (with local people, my housemates, etc.) even if HEC Montreal is a french-speaking business school. This said HEC do offer some of the courses in Engkish and in Spanish also.
