Housing

The Joyce Gibson Inniss Hall is a co-ed hall of residence, situated on the compound of the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mount Hope. We strongly recommend that ALL single, first-time admissions to the School of Veterinary Medicine should seek accommodation at this Hall. (For accompanied students there is competitively priced off-campus housing. Advice, additional to that provided on this website, can be sought from the Division of Student Services and Development). 

The Hall is a short (three - five minute) walk from classes, and a fifteen-minute drive to the main campus. The University provides a free, air-conditioned shuttle service to transport students between the campuses and environs.
