First off, don't stay in the dorm rooms with shared bath unless you're 1. In love and with your lover 2. With your best friends and ready to party 3. Under the age of 25.
These are dorm rooms in a dorm, rented out in the off season.
The rest of you, get a room with a bath, which is very nice. However, there is limited air conditioning in most units, although the weather was chilly wet mid August, so that was not an issue. The campus itself is beautiful, but big and sprawling. If you're near the student center, there's a restaurant/bar which is quite good, a convenience store, and a student cafeteria with limited hours. There's a car rental place there too which is very good, but you have to reserve a DAY IN ADVANCE. And this is critical, to have a car, because the university is on the outskirts of town and everything is a fifteen minute drive away. And cabs are expensive. The bus lines are good but slow and the buses stop at midnight. You can buy tickets at the convenience store or use exact change. To do Quebec right, you need a car to visit the Montmorency falls and L'isle d'Orleans and to shlep around the city itself. There's decent parking just outside the old city. Meters mainly. But once you park, you have to stroll. It is a terrific place for strolling, AND eating. Best bread this side of France. All in all, a nice hotel/dorm room in a student-oriented environment, but off the beaten path.
