McGill University has many of its buildings on the street. There are also several notable buildings located on the southern portion of the street, including Place Ville Marie, Place Bonaventure, Telus Tower and the world headquarters of the ICAO.
The major part of this street, linking René Lévesque Boulevard and Sherbrooke Street, was ceded by the descendants of Sir Thomas Phillips, a merchant, and an entrepreneur in construction, who became a city councillor in the 1840s. At the time, University ended at Sherbrooke Street, where a little path continued to McGill University, the institution from which the street got its name.
