Initially called McGill College, McGill University was founded in 1821, thanks to a bequest from James McGill, a successful Scottish merchant who had wanted his estate to be turned into a private constituent college upon his death. The university's first academic unit was the Montreal Medical Institution, established in 1823 and also the first medical school in Canada. By the early 1900s, McGill University had expanded and established its Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Law (also the first of its kind in Canada), and Faculty of Architecture.
In 1907, the university added a second campus, named the Macdonald campus, in the Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue suburb of Quebec. McGill University's campus expanded again in 2019, with the construction of a new campus in the city of Gatineau in Quebec.
