The power of Greater Montreal

Our city’s 10 university institutions contribute to the power of important sectors, including innovation, research and culture, to name just a few. Thanks to the brains they train, these 10 higher-learning institutions enrich our communities and help make our city a smarter, stronger and more dynamic metropolis.

All together now, let’s celebrate the many brains that have earned Montreal its ranking as the top university city in America.

The Roaming Classroom

“The Roaming Classroom” is a wandering urban art installation that brings Montreal’s 10 university institutions a little closer to the citizens and communities that they serve. This installation was also created to help make Montrealers more aware of the contributions these institutions make to the growth and reputation of Greater Montreal.
