Our work at Right to Campus focuses on the rights of individuals to inhabit space equally and feel safe while engaging and participating in that space. We believe that space is a dynamic force that shapes individuals but that can also be shaped by individuals. Our work would therefore not be complete without interactive maps that allow people to easily visualize the McGill campus environment according to their various needs. In linking you to existing maps, and creating additional maps, we hope to foster safety and equity on campus through promoting knowledge of current resources available and how to access them.

Useful for saving money by bringing your own meals to campus. Our map tries to be as comprehensive as possible, but it may have missed microwaves! Here are some tips for scouting them out on your own:
Most departmental lounges will have microwaves in them, as well as a space to heat water and clean your tupperware
Where there is a McGill run dining service there will also be microwaves! This includes residence caféterias.
