Overview[edit]

The exterior of Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke station.

It is a normal side platform station, with a ticket hall installed directly at platform level on the departure platform. This makes it the only station in the network that requires purchasing another fare to switch platforms. A commercial building has been built above the station. Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke is directly connected to Terminus Longueuil and several neighbouring buildings through skywalks.

The station is equipped with the MétroVision information screens which displays news, commercials, and the time till the next train.

Origin of name[edit]

The station was originally called Longueuil, after the city where it is located. It was renamed Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke on September 26, 2003, to reflect the fact that the Université de Sherbrooke has a campus nearby. (Each Montreal-area university has its name in the nearest metro station.) Nevertheless, most Montrealers still use the station's original name when referring to this station.
