While accommodation on campus is limited, living in any one of the halls of residence is an experience not to be missed.
There are eight halls of residence. Two are single-sex halls: Mary Seacole (all female) and Chancellor (all male). The four other halls – ABC, Elsa Leo Rhynie, Irvine, Taylor, Rex Nettleford and A.Z. Preston are mixed-gender residences. In addition there is a 400 studio complex. Information concerning residence in hall is available from the Office of Student Services & Development. Each Hall is equipped with a laundry area that has coin-operated washers and dryers. Students also access computer facilities with internet connections.
To apply for accommodation on campus, go to the UWI page and click on "Accommodation" under Current Students. Then click on "Forms and Documents" on the next page that comes up. Then click on the "Housing Application Form" to download. The completed form should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org . You will receive an email advising of the status of your application.
Visit the Office of Student Services and Development website for more information and to complete the Housing Application.
Assistance in finding housing off-campus is provided by the Lodgings Office which keeps in touch with communities nearby e.g. Hope Pastures and Mona. Homeowners in these communities have traditionally rented rooms, studios or flats to UWI students. However, with increasing housing demand, it is becoming necessary for some students to live farther away from campus than may be ideal.
For more information on accommodation, please contact the Office of Student Services and Development or the Halls directly.
