The Aureus University Medical School campus is a newly built, high tech facility located on the island of Aruba, an autonomous region within the Netherlands. Aruba is a sparkling Southern Caribbean island fifteen miles off the coast of Venezuela. Just nineteen miles long and six miles across at its widest point, the island has a total land area of 70 square miles.
Aruba is world-renowned for its white, sandy beaches on the western and southern coasts of the island where most tourist development has taken place. The northern and eastern coasts, lacking this protection, have for the most part been left in their natural state, untouched by human hands. Aruba has many wonderful attractions available to Aureus students.
WEATHER: Aruba enjoys a dry and sunny climate which is kept pleasant and temperate year-round due to the cooling effects of the trade winds. The average annual temperature is 83 degrees Fahrenheit (27 Celsius), and rainfall amounts to just 17 inches a year, most of which occurs during the months of October and November. Aruba is also located well below the hurricane belt.
