What should I know about campus safety?

St. George’s University is a gated community. The school has long maintained a great relationship with Grenada’s residents. The island is one of the safest in the Caribbean, and that goes for weather as well. Grenada is well below the most common travel path for hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean.

Can my family come with me?

The average entering student is 27 years old, so we have a robust support network for nontraditional students. The Significant Others Organization (SOO) assists students and their families with emotional support, school, daycare, and much more.

Students are incredibly active in the community. They’ve donated time, money, and a significant amount of energy to volunteer projects in Grenada that range from social issues to animal rescues.
