The French language institution's large campus, dominated by the imposing tower of the main building, is located on the northern slope of Mount Royal near Université-de-Montréal metro station in Côte-des-Neiges.
Although a branch of Laval University[?] was planned as Montreal's first French-language university, it was not until February 14, 1920, that the law founding the university was passed, and another 13 years passed before the mountain campus's inauguration on June 3, 1943.
The university is composed of thirteen faculties, more than sixty departments and two affiliated schools (École Polytechnique and École des Hautes Études Commerciales), and offers more than 250 undergraduate programs and more than 250 graduate programs, including 71 doctoral programs.
