Housing Information for International Students
As one of the most beautiful places in the world, Honolulu ranks amont the most desirable cities in which to live. Due to this desirability, the housing market in Hawaii can be intimidating to some students. Luckily, HPU provides some on-campus housing options for incoming students, as well as assistance in locating clean, safe, and nearby off-campus accommodations.
Hawai'i Pacific University offers two distinct options for on-campus housing:
- Our residence hall complex on the windward Hawai'i Loa Campus, specifically reserved for first-year (freshmen) students and providing a traditional university living community;
- The new suite-style Waterfront Lofts downtown at Aloha Tower Marketplace, largely for upper-class and graduate students looking for a more independent living environment.
Depending on your age, life circumstances, or personal experience, living off campus may be more desirable for your life and your budget. If you are interested in learning more about the island of Oahu and the housing options available, visit the Commuter Services page, which provides links and general advice about residential areas as well as information regarding the rental market on Oahu.
Other recommended online sources to find rentals include:
eAds - find housing via Pipeline, HPU's Intranet, by visiting https://campus.hpu.edu. Your initial login requires your HPU student ID and your date of birth. Look for "@HPU," where you will find eAds, HPU's electronic bulletin board, that offers many rental options.
