UWI Five Islands expected to comfortably accommodate 11,000 students after expansion

UWI FIC, Antigua


The Cabinet invited Architect Luke Robinson to present a Master Plan for the UWI Five Islands.


The team has been working for several months to produce a plan that will take into account the incorporation of the Five Islands Primary School property.


The plan will lead to an upgrade of the Primary School and incorporation of 8 acres of private land into the new designs; the plan will also lead to new buildings, to an Olympic-size swimming pool, an amphitheater, a massive library and additional classrooms.


The object is to make UWI Five Islands even more attractive to OECS citizens.


When it is completed, the UWI Five Islands is expected to occupy 40 acres of land and will comfortably accommodate 11,000 students.

        • Winston said on Friday gone that these #UPPNEARGA are the most badminded set of people in the history of Antigua. He said the only time they can see progress if when they are the ones making a proposal. They have no interest in the progress of this beloved land. If Winston can say so well who else better to know dem #UPPNEARGA..not me!
