Campus Tours

Areal view of uwi cave hill

The Cave Hill Campus sits on an elevated picturesque property, overlooking the crystal clear, tranquil Caribbean Sea. The campus, which is known for its relatively small size and scenic attractiveness is steeped in 60 years of rich history and tradition. As a result, during our yearlong anniversary celebrations, commencing the month of February 2023, the campus will open its doors to locals and non-nationals who may wish to tour the campus. These walking tours will be facilitated by trained tour guides who will provide interesting and enlightening information on the various historical landmarks.
Each month until December, two tours will be conducted during the week on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and on Saturdays from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  
All tours will start at the Humanities quadrangle, located immediately in front of the Cynthia Wilson Arts Lecture Theatre, and end at the University Bookshop where 60th anniversary memorabilia will be on sale.
