From downtown Montreal to the Universite de Montreal campus, you can take a taxi (about $15.00) or the Metro (subway) for $2.00 a ticket. Exit the Metro at the Universite de Montreal Station (blue line). Then take the moving ramp to the campus. The building "Pavillon Andre-Aisenstadt" is located west of the main building "Pavillon Principal".

If you are driving, take the "Decarie" Expressway (Highway 15) and exit at "Chemin Queen Mary Road". Travel east on "Chemin Queen Mary Road". When you cross Decelles Street (one street east of "Chemin Cote-des-Neiges") you enter the campus of the Universite de Montreal. It is difficult to park on the streets surrounding the campus. However for the price of $9 per day, you can use campus parking lots (not including special permit areas).
