  • LIVING IN ANTIGUA
    HOUSING

    All new Pre-Clinical Sciences I students are required to reside in university-selected housing facilities when they begin their studies in Antigua, unless given explicit permission to live elsewhere by the university.

    Housing selections are handled on a first-deposited, first-served basis contingent upon receipt of a $750 place-holder deposit and a completed Housing & Transportation Form.

    Now that we鈥檝e gotten all that out of the way, please know that it鈥檚 incredibly important to us that you feel Antigua is home as you complete Pre-Clinical Sciences and even when you come back to visit as an MD someday.

    That鈥檚 why we鈥檝e personally chosen housing units that represent a full range of options, from a limited number of single-bedroom studios to two- and three-bedroom suites with a fully equipped kitchen, furnished living room, and dining area. They are divided into three groups, depending on amenities provided. AUA defines single rooms as bedrooms occupied by one person. Double rooms are bedrooms occupied by two persons.

    All AUA-selected housing comes with complimentary weekly housekeeping services. All students residing in AUA-selected housing need to bring or locally purchase their own linens, including pillows and towels. Most beds are queen size. Some are single and full size. Please confirm this when you receive your housing assignment.

    You may also choose to purchase personal property insurance from your preferred insurance provider.

This service is available at a cost of USD $450 per semester. Ten-trip passes are also available for $20 USD. Transportation is nonrefundable and cannot be prorated or transferred. Students may not trade or sell full semester transportation passes among themselves.

    TEMPORARY DRIVER鈥橲 LICENSE

    You can purchase a temporary license from the Antigua and Barbuda Transport Board (ABTB) located at Herbert鈥檚 Road, Potters Village, Antigua. For more information call the ABTB at (268) 460-8300. You may also purchase a temporary driver鈥檚 license from the Car Rental Agency or Coolidge Police Station (268-462-3185) at a cost of $50 ECD. You will need to present a valid passport along with a valid driver鈥檚 license from your home country. The temporary license is valid for three months only. You must get a new temporary license every three months or get a permanent license.

    PERMANENT DRIVER鈥橲 LICENSE

    To apply for a permanent license, present your passport and a valid driver鈥檚 license at the ABTB, located at Herbert鈥檚 Road, Potters Village, Antigua. Your passport must have a stamp in it stating that you are an AUA student. You will need to pay $85 ECD for the license, and $365 ECD for the application and processing fees ($450 ECD total).

  • MONEY AND BANKING

    Students should arrive on the island with enough funding to cover living and personal expenses. These include food, cabs, and other costs. We recommend a budget of about US $2,000-$5,000 per student, per semester. You will need to bring money with you to cover your expenses before your financial aid arrives.

    The safest way to deposit money into a bank account is with traveler鈥檚 checks, debit, or credit cards. A debit card that functions as a Visa or MasterCard is an excellent way to transfer money from an account in the US to your account in Antigua. It鈥檚 a good idea to set up a joint bank account that family members back home can contribute to and you can access with a debit card while you鈥檙e at AUA.

    Wiring money takes a few days to clear and the fees are usually high. Personal checks can be deposited into your account but will not be available until the checks have cleared. This takes about three weeks. Students must present a passport and a matriculation letter from the registrar in order to open a bank account:听[email protected].
