Hey students. Welcome back, and welcome to Cult MTL’s 12th annual Student Survival Guide.

Going back to school doesn’t have to be a pain, especially if it means returning to this incredible city. Montreal is buzzing with enough activity and entertainment to get you through the year, and balancing a serious approach to studies with an exciting and rewarding social life is very doable, and even affordable.

You can lean on Cult MTL to steer you. Because that’s what we do.

Along with offering practical information to help you navigate the city and make the best use of its many services, this guide features pointers on Montreal food, nightlife, shopping and art, along with loads of other leisure activities, from cycling to spas.

All this is in keeping with the content of our magazine and on our website, where our What To Do in Montreal Today page offers a daily to-do list. Meanwhile, our Best of MTL readers poll results reflect everything our audience loves about this city.

Cult MTL is Montreal’s only online source of comprehensive cultural coverage and city life; we write about the city’s best festivals, music news, films, the restaurant scene, politics, sports and more.

So read this guide, keep it handy, look for our monthly magazines, find us online at and follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. And as you make your way through this semester, and semesters to come, know that we’re here  for you.
