The International College of the Cayman Islands (ICCI) is an accredited non-profit, private, four-year independent institution of higher education which opened in the fall of 1970. It is the oldest college in the Cayman Islands and is located in Newlands in the district of Bodden Town on the island of Grand Cayman.


The campus of ICCI is located in the central part of Grand Cayman in the rural community of Newlands, approximately seven miles east of George Town.
