Université de Montréal has celebrated the opening of its Brossard campus on Montréal’s South Shore. The new campus is located in the Solar Uniquartier community, a development that brings together businesses, green space, and residences and is located on the light rail line that leads to UMontréal’s mountain campus. The campus spans two floors of an office building and contains classrooms, laboratories, and a 125-seat auditorium. “We designed the Brossard campus to bring the university closer to South Shore residents,” said UMontréal Rector Daniel Jutras. “This is the essence of local university outreach: making the university accessible to all people of all ages.” The Brossard campus replaces the university’s campus in Longueuil and will primarily offer short professional development programs.
