The scenic campus in Vieux Fort on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia combines the best of many worlds. With a spectacular view of the ocean, the St. Lucia campus provides a serene setting just minutes away from the International Airport. IAU blends a vibrant community with a small-town atmosphere to give you a quality of life that’s hard to match. You’ll quickly become part of the spirit and tradition of IAU.
With over 10 student organizations catering to a wide range of interests, students actively take part in creating a lively and diverse campus community. In addition, the island of St. Lucia affords students a wide array of activities and events to participate in. In one day, a student could dive the crystal clear waters or hike the Piton in the morning and return to campus for a hands-on lab on exotic wildlife species.
Students are captivated by the unique blend of African, English, and French cultures of St. Lucia. They can immerse themselves in St. Lucia’s rich history or dine at a local restaurant in the picturesque Soufrie, as native music fills the air. Though many languages are spoken, English is the national language.
The St. Lucian community has proudly embraced the University and its students. For 10 years students and community members have lived in peace, with a mutual respect that is genuine and admired. In turn, IAU has been a vital contributor to the Island through both financial and humanitarian means. IAU is proud that its students, graduates, and faculty are dedicated to improving the lives of both old and young on the Island.
