Canada Hall

Canda Hall UWI St. Augustine

The newly refurbished Canada Hall is a traditional-styled single room only hall. It consists primarily of two 3-storey dormitory blocks; the North Block dedicated for female and South Block for male students. The hall boasts spacious grounds and is ideally located in close proximity to the Sir Frank Worrell playing field and the Student Activity Centre. The Hall attracts a diverse population of students from all over the Caribbean. Canada Hall is best suited for young undergraduate level students, who enjoy being part of a close community and are seeking to join a hall with lots of activities and fellowship.

Built from funds donated by the Canadian Government, the Hall was opened in 1963, and named after the donor Government. Originally the Hall housed 192 students - 32 rooms per floor. The facilities were modified in 1989 to provide kitchenettes and this reduced the number of rooms per floor to 28 and a total available occupancy of 168 students. In 2018, the campus completed a full refurbishment of the hall, gutting the interiors, building new rooms, bathroom & common facilities and a brand new administrative offices and secure entrance hall.
