UWI Five Island Campus Receives Seventeen Million Dollars From Government To Get Going


A total of $17 million dollars have been transferred to the UWI thus far to cover arrears and payment for the first months of operation.

The UWI Fourth Landed Campus is set open its doors on 1st September 2019. On that Sunday afternoon, it will hold an Ecumenical Service of Thanksgiving at the St. John’s Cathedral. On the Tuesday afternoon, September 3rd 2019, there will be a grand opening ceremony at the Five Islands Campus. The Public Works has been preparing the grounds and sprucing-up the buildings.

$500,000 have been approved for the purchase of computers and other necessary supplies, to meet the high-tech needs of the Campus. Three additional buildings are to be added to the Campus, two stories each, construction to commence in early November 2019. A beautiful architectural rendering, going back to the 2009 ABLP Manifesto when the journey started, will also be constructed on the Campus grounds. A Trust has been created that already has a Chairman and a Vice Chairman nominated; more donations and contributions are expected to be provided.

The Government says that this is the greatest achievement since 1981.

  1. “The Government says that this is the greatest achievement since 1981.”


    • Exactly what was the achievement in 1981?

      Are we better off today?

      I thought achievement suggest success, positive progress, betterment etc.

      BVI, and Monserrat seems to be enjoying a higher standard of living.

      Look at their infrastructure and recovery after national desaster. Just saying

  2. This is really a great accomplishment and I’m 100% supportive of it. The only problem is that UWI doesn’t seem to be spending any of its money on the Five Islands campus.

    UWI is getting a totally free lunch at Antiguan tax payer expense. It’s time for UWI to be spending money on the Five Islands campus too.

    Also, the UWI official website doesn’t even feature the Five Islands campus like how it features the other UWI campuses – why is that?

  3. I hope penioners get paid ….cos idk where this governmentget 17million dollars to start off UWI…..

    Oh thats right CIP …and “other” contributions from deals with the port also called deferred gasty monies……
