West End Road on Cayman Brac has
been tapped as the site for the new home of the University College of the
Cayman Islands Sister Islands branch.
“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,” said Brian Chapell, dean of special projects.
The facility will have two polycom
fitted classrooms, a computer lab, four additional classrooms, a library, a
student lounge and a board room, which will also be available for public
bookings, and a possible science lab. It should be completed by 1 August.
The relocation marks a shift to a
more centralised and convenient location for students, faculty and staff.
“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,” said Martin Keeley, director of the Cayman Brac campus.
The Cayman Brac community can
expect an official opening ceremony of the new location soon.
