The 130-acre Albert A. Sheen Campus of the University of the Virgin Islands is located at Golden Grove, midway between the towns of Christiansted and Frederiksted, on the island of St. Croix in the United States Virgin Islands.
The entrance to the campus, from Queen Mary Highway, is lined by royal palm trees

administrative ofﬁces before 1975; the Melvin H. Evans Center for Learning (the main

computer laboratories; the Research and Extension Center, which opened its doors in
1992 and houses the land-grant programs; and the Nursing complex, which has been home
to the School of Nursing since 1996. The campus was named for prominent lawyer, legislator and champion of
education Albert A. Sheen Jr. on March 24, 2011.
