About Us

Nestled between the Blue Mountains, the Aston Preston Hall opened its gates to students on August 27, 1995 and held its official opening on April 19, 1996.  It was named after a former Vice Chancellor of The University of the West Indies, Dr. Aston Zachariah Preston. During the academic year, the hall is home to 332 students, accommodated in single and double occupancy   rooms.


During the summer period, May 31 – July 15, this scenic landscape offers comfortable accommodation for over 100 visitors. For workshops and seminars this summer home is equipped with audiovisual and multilevel-sound systems, along with internet connectivity.
