FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The island of St. Kitts — the home of Ross Vet — and the neighboring island of Nevis make up the independent country of St. Kitts and Nevis. Located in the Leeward Islands of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea, the island nation is about 258 miles (415 kilometers) east-southeast of Puerto Rico.
Aside from the many campus and sporting activities, Ross Vet students can visit historical sites on St. Kitts as well as beautiful white- and black-sand beaches, volcanic peaks, and lush tropical forests. Day trips to Nevis, too, offer more opportunities to explore. See Things to Do in St. Kitts.

St. Kitts is a tranquil tropical island with a warm climate and friendly population. Both on campus and off, the university strives to provide a safe, supportive environment. Students, however, should keep the same level of personal security awareness on St. Kitts as they would anywhere else. Also, students should be prepared for the occasional tropical storm or even a hurricane. See Safety & Security.
