An American military hospital during World War II, the institute was handed over to the independent Government of Trinidad and Tobago in 1967. It was subsequently rebuilt in 1971 to become a hotel school in 1972. In 1975 the school received the name Trinidad and Tobago Hotel School.
It was later placed under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, and a Board of Directors was appointed to govern its daily operations. This structural change inspired a name change and the school became known as the Trinidad and Tobago Hospitality Training Institute.
In 1996 the institute was renamed into the Trinidad and Tobago Hospitality and Tourism Institute (TTHTI) to better reflect the services offered and the institution’s position within the hospitality and tourism industry.
The institution is currently offering programmes specialising in culinary art, food and beverage, and tourism and hospitality from Certificate to Bachelor levels.
Located in Chaguaramas in the North-Western peninsula of Trinidad, TTHTI’s facilities include ten tutorial rooms – each accommodating up to 35 students – equipped with whiteboards, multimedia projectors and screens. The campus also houses production kitchens, model bedroom, library, auditorium and dining room. In addition, TTHTI runs The Hilltop Restaurant operated by its students.
TTHTI’s students have access to a cafeteria, students’ lounge, courtyard and dormitories. The computer laboratory provides 25 work stations with free internet access. Wi-Fi is available throughout the institution’s premises.
