In-Person and Virtual Residence Tours

St Michaels Campus - The image depicts a tree lined street with sun coming through the canopy of trees.

The best way to see our campus is to come down for a tour. Our friendly guides will provide you with a brief history of our College and then take you to some of our residence buildings, the dining hall, our student center and the Kelly Café. Tours begin just outside the Registrar’s Office in Brennan Hall and last about 45 minutes. If you need directions to Brennan Hall, simply arrive at 81 St. Mary Street and our Porter’s Desk will point you in the right direction.

All SMC Residence tours will be paused from mid-April through to mid-August.

For newly admitted students to SMC who would like a campus tour, please register for a tour with the Registrar’s Office. Their tours run Fridays at 3:00 p.m.
