Origin of the name Berri-UQAM

The origin of the name Berri, in use since 1818, is still uncertain. The lands in this area, which belonged to Migeon de Branssat in 1669, were called La Gauchetière and Berry. It is unknown whether this name refers to the French province by the same name.

The Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) was created by the Government of Québec in 1968, and was opened in 1969. The campus in this neighbourhood was opened in 1979.

The station was renamed Berri-UQAM on 1 January 1988; until that time, it was called Berri-de Montigny Rue de Montigny (now part of boul. de Maisonneuve, except for a small portion near Place des Arts) was named in honour of the Testard de Montigny family.

The Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) was established by the Government of Québec in accordance with the Act respecting the Université du Québec adopted on December 18, 1968. The UQAM welcomed its first students in the Fall of 1969. The institution had a rapid growth and inaugurated phase 1 of its new campus in 1979 near the métro station.
