McGill University is one of Canada's best-known institutions of higher education and one of the leading universities in the world. McGill was founded in 1821 thanks to a generous donation by James McGill, and since then, it has grown from a small college to a bustling university with two campuses, 11 faculties, approximately 300 programs of study, and 40,000 students. The University also partners with four affiliated teaching hospitals to graduate over 1,000 health care professionals each year.
McGill's main campus is situated in downtown Montreal at the foot of Mount Royal. Most of its buildings are situated in a park-like campus located north of Sherbrooke Street and south of Pine Avenue between Peel and Aylmer streets. The campus is near Peel and McGill Metro stations. A major downtown boulevard, McGill College Avenue, leads up to the Roddick Gates, the university's formal main entrance.
