Whether you’re looking for artsy date spots or seeking inspiration, museums are great places for students to hang out. The Canadian Centre for Architecture, just a 5-minute walk from Sir George Williams Campus, offers free entry for students. If you’re 20 and under, you’ll get in free to the Museum of Fine Arts, also located a few minutes from the downtown campus.

Grocery stores

Some grocery stores, including Metro, Super C, and Provigo, offer a 10% student discount on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays. Bulk Barn always has 10% off for students on Wednesdays, where you can stock up on study snacks and zero waste bulk goods.

Public transport

Getting around Montreal is easy — but even easier as a student. Hit the city’s extensive cycle lanes using BIXI, the city’s bikeshare system, where Concordia students get an exclusive discount on memberships. Ride the metro and bus in style with an OPUS card, also valid for significant savings: pay $58 for unlimited monthly transport instead of $97!


You don’t want to spend all of your university years in the library. Use your student ID to get a student-priced seasons pass for Piknic Electronik, a Montreal tradition of Sunday DJ sets at Parc Jean-Drapeau. Most film festivals, including Fantasia and Nouveau Cinema, have student pricing so you can see the latest in independent cinema without breaking the bank!
