Suspension of Classes at The UWI Mona Campus

The leadership of The UWI Mona Campus in consultation with the Vice-Chancellor of the University and other authorities has taken the decision to suspend all classes at both the Mona and Western Jamaica Campuses for four weeks, effective March 13, 2020.

All mid-semester examinations scheduled for tomorrow, March 13, 2020, have subsequently been cancelled. Teaching is expected to resume, either online or face-to-face from April 14, 2020, and this may result in the semester being extended. All Jamaican students who reside on hall are required to move home during this period. International and regional students are welcome to remain on hall, but are asked to strictly adhere to all instituted protocols.

The Campus will remain open and operational until further advised.

As we continue to monitor the national, regional and international situation and prepare our own environment, we urge that that all staff, students and members of the wider community take the necessary personal precautionary measures.
