Things to Remember

Direction Guide

We've provided information on how to get to us from various areas of Trinidad. If you are visiting our country, welcome to Trinidad!

A. Airport, Arima and North-East Trinidad.

Arima is one of Trinidad's busiest and biggest towns. Other towns further east from Arima include Sangre Grande, Toco, and Balandra. The Piarco International Airport is somewhat south-west of Arima, but the highway taken from Arima is the same taken from Piarco. Coming from Arima, you will travel west along the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway for approximately 12km until you get to Curepe at the Southern Main Road. Turn north onto the Southern Main Road and travel for 1.7km till you reach the Eastern Main Road. Turn west along the Eastern Main Road from Curepe to St. Joseph for 0.5km. In St. Joseph, turn north to the Maracas Royal Road, and travel an additional 4.5km to the University's campus.

If coming from the Piarco International Airport, where car rentals are available, you will travel north along the Piarco Road for 4.9km until you reach the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway. Turn west onto the highway and travel for 8.3km until you reach Curepe at the Southern Main Road. Follow the directions given in the paragraph above.

B. Curepe/St. Joseph and North-Central Trinidad.

The Curepe/St. Joseph area is the closest urban center to the University. St. Joseph, the former capital of Trinidad during the Spanish Colonial days, is a mere 4.5km south from the University. Curepe is 0.5km away from St. Joseph. To get to USC from Curepe, and by extension St. Joseph, you must travel west along the Eastern Main Road from Curepe to St. Joseph for 0.5km. In St. Joseph, turn north to the Maracas Royal Road, and travel an additional 4.5km to the University's campus.

C. Port-of-Spain and Northwest Trinidad.

Port-of-Spain, the capital of Trinidad and Tobago, serves as the central hub through which individuals traveling from the northwest of the island will gain access to the rest of the country. Once you leave Port-of-Spain, you will have to travel east along the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway for 9.1km, till you reach the Uriah Butler Highway. Here you will turn north onto the Uriah Butler Highway, till you reach the Eastern Main Road some 2.1km away. Turn east onto the Eastern Main Road, and travel an additional 1.5km till you reach the Maracas Royal Road. Turn north onto this road and travel for 4.5km till you reach the University's campus.

D. Chaguanas and Central Trinidad.

Chaguanas, sometimes called "Center City", is the largest and most popular town in central Trinidad. The main north-south highway, the Solomon-Hochoy Highway, runs directly through this major town. Chaguanas is a very popular place for many shopping bargains, and much variety. From Chaguanas, you will travel north along the Solomon-Hochoy Highway for 12.6km until you reach the major highway intersection, where three highways converge. At this intersection, cross over the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway onto the Uriah Butler Highway, where you will continue to travel north for 2.1km till you reach the Eastern Main Road. Turn east onto the Eastern Main Road, and travel an additional 1.5km till you reach the Maracas Royal Road. Turn north onto this road and travel for 4.5km till you reach the University's campus.

E. San Fernando and South Trinidad.

The "Southern Capital" or the "Industrial Capital", San Fernando is the only other city in Trinidad besides the capital Port-of-Spain. Located in the south land, San Fernando serves as business-central for many petrochemical and heavy industries. Beyond San Fernando, many popular towns gain access to north Trinidad through this southern city. These towns include Rio Claro, Princes Town, Point Fortin, Penal and Siparia. Once you are in San Fernando, you will travel north along the Solomon- Hochoy Highway for 40.4km, till you reach the major highway intersection, where three highways converge. At this intersection, cross over the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway onto the Uriah Butler Highway, where you will continue to travel north for 2.1km till you reach the Eastern Main Road. Turn east onto the Eastern Main Road, and travel an additional 1.5km till you reach the Maracas Royal Road. Turn north onto this road and travel for 4.5km till you reach the University's campus.
