If you want to go off campus, buses run on a shift system from the campus to commercial areas including Papine, Liguanea and the surrounding communities. Public transportation is also available outside the campus gates.
The UWI campus is very large and the academic buildings and amenities require students to get around by walking long distances. For the convenience of our residents, we offer a bicycle rental service. Students are able to get to class on time, visit friends in other halls of residence, and get to different activities or just ride to keep fit.
