CLASSROOMS. Over the course of many decades,
the Institute's campus has undergone numerous changes.
The original building housed classrooms, adminstrative
offices and the teacher's lounge. This building was
destroyed by the January 12, 2010 earthquake. In 1997,
a new wing of 12 classrooms was completed, greatly expanding
the Institute's student capacity. And, in 2010, the
Institute completed its multi-use administrative/classroom/cultural
building with Cultural Hall on top floor--January 2010
views of the 4-storey, multi-use building.
COMPUTER LAB. In 2006,
President of the Board Mrs. Patricia Convery initiated
the purchase and installation of a state-of-the-art
computer lab at the Institute. This decision came about
due to the requirements for TOEFL and SAT Testing, which
were eliminating all paper-based tests in favor of electronic
(computer) testing. The Institute rose to the challenge,
and now has a
testing lab with 25 computers.
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. LIBRARY.
Haiti once had the largest collection of English-language books
for the public housed in the Institute's
Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, which was annexed to
the original building that collapsed in the 2010 earthquake.
On 18 January 2013, a small, informal ceremony was held by President of the Board Patricia Convery, Board member Dr. Mathurin, and new librarian Gina Niclas Jacques during which Dr. Mathurin placed the first books from his donated collection of art and Haitian history onto the new shelves.
LA BUVETTE SNACK BAR. No campus worthy
of calling itself a "campus" would be complete
without somewhere to grab a quick bite to eat. The Institute's
Snack Bar, La Buvette, offers
pies, patés, cookies, sandwiches, and a wide
variety of soft drinks at an affordable price.
PARKING. The courtyard inside the Institute
has a very limited amount of parking that is reserved
for faculty, staff and administrative personnel. Outside
street parking is available for students with cars,
motorcycles and bicycles.
HOURS OF OPERATION. The
Institute is open from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. six days
