LIFE AT FONTENEIGE
Since 1997, Fonteneige University Centre has met the needs of young women studying in Montreal. Activities at the Residence promote balanced personal development among women in CEGEP and University by stimulating competence, autonomy and personal responsibility.
Fonteneige University Centre is in close proximity to the Université de Montréal (UdeM), the Hautes études commerciales (HEC) de Montréal, the École Polytechnique, and the École d’Architecture. The residence is a 4-minute walk to the University of Montreal Metro and a 26-minute bus ride to McGill. There is easy access to other Montreal universities by public transportation.
Fonteneige University Centre is inspired by the message of Saint Josémaria Escriva which we strive to live in our work, dealings with others, and all aspects of daily life. Saint Josémaria founded Opus Dei, an institution of the Catholic Church, to which the spiritual activities organized at the Fonteneige are entrusted.
Fonteneige offers weekly classes on the Christian faith to all female university students seeking to learn more about the Christian faith in a context of openness and dialogue. These classes are open to students of all faiths and backgrounds. Fonteneige also offers daily Mass.
You can learn more about St. Josemaría and Opus Dei here.
