UMHS takes the safety and security of its students, faculty, and staff very seriously. There is a full-time security staff, and security office on campus to assist students with any questions or concerns, open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Students are required to obtain a University identification card when they first register for classes. Students must show their identification card to enter the campus, and the card must be visible on the student at all times while on campus.
St. Kitts is a relatively safe island, however we urge students to exercise normal precautions as if they were visiting any large city. The people on the island are generally very welcoming and friendly. Be aware of local surroundings and avoid opportunistic crimes by not leaving valuables unattended or doors unlocked. The local police as well as the university's security force will come to a student's aid at any time of the day or night.
