Northern Caribbean University is a Seventh-day Adventist Institution that provides quality Christ-centred education, and is the oldest private tertiary institution in Jamaica.


NCU is co-owned and operated by the Jamaica Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists (JAMU) and the Atlantic Caribbean Union Mission of Seventh-day Adventists (ACUM), both of which came out of the reorganization of the former West Indies Union Conference on November 29, 2010.


Founded in 1907 as West Indian Training School, the institution has undergone several transitions over the years, the most recent of which occurred in 1999 when it achieved university status upon receiving a charter from the government of Jamaica to operate as Northern Caribbean University.
