Guy-Concordia is a station on the Green Line of the Montreal Metro in Montreal, Québec, Canada. It is in downtown Montreal in the borough of Ville-Marie. It was inaugurated on October 14, 1966, as part of the original network of the metro.

Designed by J.A. Chicoine, it is a normal side-platform station, built in tunnel with a transept, ticket hall, and access at each end. The eastern access contains shops and services, and an underground city connection to two Concordia University buildings, and projected connections to three more.

Origin of the nameEdit

The station was originally called Guy after the street where it is located: Guy Street. On January 1, 1988, it was renamed Guy-Concordia to reflect the fact that it serves the Sir George Williams campus of Concordia University.

(Note that in French the name Guy is pronounced to rhyme with he, whereas in English the name is usually pronounced to rhyme with hi. The station is still sometimes referred to simply as Guy.)

Guy Street, in turn, takes its name from Étienne Guy who represented Montreal in the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada] and was the owner of the land through which the street runs.

Concordia University was created in August 1974 from the fusion of Sir George Williams University and Loyola College. It takes its name from the motto of Montreal: concordia salus, "prosperity through concord."
