CAMPUS HOUSING

Where do I learn about housing?

Information for both on-campus and off-campus housing may be obtained through the following methods:-

  • Logging on to the University website http://sta.uwi.edu/residence
  • Contact our Student Accommodation Office via telephone 1(868)662-2002 Ext. 83847 or 662-9501/663-0075 or email accommodation@sta.uwi.edu
  • Visit at the Office of Division of Student Services and Development (DSSD)

Am I guaranteed accommodation in a Hall of Residence? How do I apply?

Prospective students are asked to note that the University cannot guarantee accommodation. An Offer of Entry to a Faculty on ANY campus gives no assurance of accommodation in a Hall of Residence.

Applicants who wish to live in a Hall of Residence on the St. Augustine Campus are required to complete and submit a Hall of Residence Application Form. Go to the Student Advisory Services web site and download the Hall of Residence Application form. The completed form must be submitted to:

Office of the Director
Division of Student Services and Development
The University of the West Indies
St. Augustine Campus
Trinidad & Tobago W.I.


Off-Campus Housing

The University attempts to provide accommodation for most first year students who wish it. If we cannot offer university housing, we offer to help you, through Student Services, to find private, off-campus housing. Neither Student Services nor The University, however, has any control over the standard of housing offered or the rent charged.

If you wish to live off-campus, the Accommodation Officer at Student Services would be happy to provide you with a list of available off-campus, furnished housing. For further information on off-campus housing, visit our website at http://sta.uwi.edu/oasis.


Are new students required to live on campus?

Students can choose to live either on- or off-campus. On-campus accommodation in the Halls of Residence is however very limited.

If you wish to live on Hall, you must submit a separate application for housing/accommodation at the same time you are applying for admission to the University. This application for accommodation must be sent to:

Office of the Director
Division of Student Services and Development
The University of the West Indies
St. Augustine Campus
Trinidad & Tobago W.I.


Where do I get a Vehicle Parking Permit?

To ensure proper management of the University's limited parking resources and the security of our students, faculty and staff, members of the campus community are required to apply for a parking permit directly to the Director of Security at the Security Department.

Parking permits should be affixed to the front windshield of the vehicles in a conspicuous manner so that they can easily be seen by Security.

Also, special parking permits are issued to concessionaires, visitors and persons with disabilities and/or temporary handicaps by applying directly to the Director of Security.

Please remember that parking permits authorise the vehicles to be parked in the relevant parking areas but they do not guarantee a parking spot.
