On August 1st of this year, the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) Cayman Brac campus will have a new home. The Avistar III building on West End Road will be the new hub for tertiary education in the Sister Islands. The relocation marks a shift to a more centralised and convenient location for students, faculty and staff.
Discussing the move, UCCI Dean of Special Projects, Brian Chapell noted, "We are very pleased to launch the upcoming academic year in this new location. The Avistar III boasts a great location and a dynamic layout that will allow for a more effective use of space for our students."
The new facility will have 2 polycom fitted classrooms, a computer lab, 4 additional classrooms, a library, a student lounge and a board room, which will also be available for public bookings. Dr. Chapell is also exploring the possibility of the provision of a science lab on the new campus.
Mr. Martin Keeley, Director of the Cayman Brac campus added, " The new location will provide us with more flexibility in terms of the numbers of courses we are able to offer, and will provide both students and staff with their own and very welcome places to escape each other!"
Owner of the Avistar III building, Mr. Garston Grant welcomed the UCCI campus move stating that, "We are happy to have UCCI staff and students in our building and look forward to a long and successful partnership for the development of tertiary education in Cayman Brac."
Dr. Chapell advised that the Cayman Brac community can expect an official opening ceremony of the new location in the near future.
