Who we are
Founded in 1927 the University of the Southern Caribbean (USC) is a private, co-educational institution with a diverse student body located in the twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
Our graduates continue to show the richness of the educational package offered at USC, providing employers with feelings confidence and trust. The USC reputation extends beyond Trinidad and Tobago, and includes significant sections of the Anglophone Caribbean region, the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, the Francophone Caribbean countries of Guadeloupe, Martinique, both French and Netherlands St Martin, Suriname, The United Kingdom and the mainland of North America.
USC is operated by the Caribbean Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and is situated on three hundred and eighty-four acres of land in the beautiful Maracas Valley about ten miles northeast of Port-of-Spain, the capital of Trinidad and Tobago. The University estate, which borders the Maracas River, is covered with beautiful and varied tropical verdure. The mild, invigorating climate, with moderately cool nights, is not only conducive to study, but also provides an environment for healthy living.
Our faculty and staff are some of the most caring individuals you will ever come across. But apart from being caring, many are well qualified and respected in their various fields of academic endeavors and have successfully competed gaining numerous awards both locally and internationally.
