Université de Montréal campus, with the main building's imposing tower in the distance

The Université de Montréal (UdeM) (University of Montreal) is one of four universities in Montreal, Quebec. It is Quebec and Canada's second largest research institution, allocating close to $200 million to research conducted in more than 150 research centres. It is also the second largest French language university in the world, after the Sorbonne in Paris. Nearly 55,000 students are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs there.

The institution's large campus, dominated by the imposing tower of the main building, is located on the northern slope of Mount Royal 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 23 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.

The university is served by Côte-des-Neiges, Université-de-Montréal, and Édouard-Montpetit metro stations.

The main building was designed by the noted architect Ernest Cormier. It is mainly in the Art Deco style, with a touch of the International style.

The university is planning to open a campus in Laval, just north of Montreal, in 2006. It will be that city's first university campus, and is planned for the area around the future Montmorency metro station, where a high school and the Montmorency Cégep are also located.

The university is represented in Canadian Interuniversity Sport by the Montréal Carabins.
