Guy Street (officially rue Guy) is a north-south street located in downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Concordia University's Integrated Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Complex is located on this street, as is the John Molson School of Business building. The street is home to the Guy-Concordia metro station. Guy Street runs through the Little Burgundy and Shaughnessy Village neighbourhoods, and the recently named Quartier Concordia district, before changing to Côte-des-Neiges Road, above Sherbrooke Street.
The street was named on August 30, 1817 for Étienne Guy (1774-1820), a notary and member for the riding of Montreal in the Lower Canada Assembly. He gave the city the land for the street. Guy Street constituted the link between the Faubourg Saint-Joseph and Saint-Antoine.
