SSMU’s yearly Student Handbook is your guide to everything McGill! The handbook is put together by undergraduates, for undergraduates, about the things that matter to undergraduates. With everything from maps of campus to tips on where to find cheap eats to a planner section, it’s full of all the information necessary to have a great academic year. 

Even better, the Student Handbook is free to all students!
