It is a normal side platform station. Constructed in the side of Mount Royal, it is the network's highest station in elevation.

It has three entrances. The main entrance, facing boul. Édouard-Montpetit, and the Université de Montréal entrance adjacent to the entrance of La Rampe escalator tunnel leading to the university's main pavilion, open directly onto the ticket hall. A third entrance on av. Louis-Colin is connected by a walkway leading over the platforms through the station cavern.

The station contains two works of art in terra cotta by architect André Léonard. The larger, located above the ticket hall, is entitled Les quatre éléments; the smaller is located at the end of the walkway to the Louis-Colin entrance.
