Community Relations

McMaster Image McMaster University is bordered on three sides by residential neighbourhoods, so cooperative relationships and communication are integral facets to a mutually benefitial partnership. Relations with our neighbours are very important to us, and the University takes steps to ensure that these relations are as positive as possible.
