About UWI LIFE
UWI Life is an essential part of the orientation programme that The University of the West Indies calls: “First Year Experience”. It targets all incoming undergraduate and postgraduate students. It was conceptualized in 1999 as an innovative way to introduce our new students to the ins and outs of campus life. At that time it was a stand-alone orientation exercise but now it has evolved into much more over the past few years.
To date, orientation is a holistic experience and encompasses faculty, halls, library and guild. UWI Life is part of the “First Year Experience” that welcomes our first year students to the campus and to university life (fondly called UWI Life).
