Look for the IGDS signage (UWI blue and IGDS plum/purple). The IGDS is located upstairs of the building to the south of the Chemistry car park also the IGDS/SALISES/FST/LAW car park. If the car park is full, please use the long TGR car park (Trinidad Government Railway – Yes this is where the old railway ran!). The gate for vehicles is at the northern end of University Drive. There is a gate for pedestrians (at the southern end) just opposite the IGDS/round building with grass roof.

Entering by CAR at the SOUTH GATE
off of the Churchill Roosevelt Highway

The Churchill Roosevelt Highway is behind you. After you pass the security booth, turn left (going west) onto the UWI ring road. After it twists and winds around, there is a long straight stretch of road — University Drive — going north towards the hills. Look out for a round building with a grass roof on your right (Chemistry Bunker). This will signal the Chemistry Car Park (also the IGDS/SALISES/FST/LAW car park).

 

Entering by CAR at the NORTH GATE off the
Eastern Main Road (Tunnel)

The tunnel to Eastern Main Road is behind you and the UWI Bookshop is on your right. After you pass the security booth, proceed south, following the road straight ahead. Bear right following the UWI ring road and passing green houses on your left. Keep bearing left onto a straight stretch of road. On your right, look out for the first car park and a round building with a grass roof (Chemistry Bunker). This will signal the Chemistry Car Park (also the IGDS/SALISES/FST/LAW car park).

 

If using the Chemistry car park during peak times of the academic year, please ask for an IGDS Visitor Pass to display on your dashboard.

 

Entering on FOOT at the NORTH GATE off the
Eastern Main Road (Tunnel)

The tunnel to Eastern Main Road is behind you and the UWI Bookshop is on your right. After you pass the security booth, proceed south, following the road ahead going towards the huge samaan trees. At the first large building to the south of a green field (Frank Stockdale Building), turn left. A samaan tree is on your left and green houses are on your right. This leads to a walkway. Along the walkway, look on your right for the low-lying IGDS signage (purple and blue). Turn right to go toward the Chemistry Car Park (also the IGDS/SALISES/FST/LAW car park.).
