The Joyce Gibson Inniss Hall is a co-ed Hall of Residence at the St. Augustine Campus of the University of the West Indies situated on the compound of the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mount Hope , fifteen minutes away from the main campus and within close proximity to the Faculty of Medical Sciences and the Hospital Facilities.
 
Brief History:
Built from funds donated by the European Union, the Hall which is named after the former Campus Domestic Bursar and the first Hall Administrator, Mrs. Joyce Gibson-Inniss, was opened in 1995, and named in 2001.
 
Facilities:
This Hall is fashioned along a villa style concept, housing 204 students. Surrounded by lush green gardens, each floor of the 14 two-storeyed and 2 three-storeyed buildings is a fully furnished six-bedroom apartment, wired for telephone services. The Hall also houses a computer room with internet access that is free of charge to residents.
 
Extra Curricula Activities:
The multi-ethnicity and diverse cultural heritage of our residents make for a richness of social experiences and learning which become evident at our unique orientation programme with its culture clash, our Hall concerts, annual dinners and other formal and informal gatherings. Our participation in various campus sporting, debating and other competitions has met with repeated success.
