In Québec, clothing must be adapted to the change in seasons. Students who don't own appropriate winter clothing will be able to find it in Montréal, where there is a wide variety of adequate clothing. Anoraks, woolen clothing, watertight lined boots, gloves, wool hats and scarves are necessary. In the fall and spring, rain coats, sweaters or cardigans are a good idea. In the summer, which is hot and humid, light clothes are recommended. At the UdeM, the dress code is relatively relaxed. The cost of clothing varies enormously. Many stores have frequent sales. For the first year, you should plan to spend between $300 and $600 on winter clothing.
