Reserved/Handicapped Parking

There are RESERVED (including HANDICAPPED) parking spaces on campus. Unauthorized vehicles parked in these spaces will be ticketed and/or towed off-campus at owner’s expense. No vehicles are permitted on the right side of the Academic Center after 5:00 p.m. on weekdays, and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Students living in the residence halls who own a vehicle and wish to park on campus will need to purchase a parking decal for the semester. Room and board fees paid by residence hall students do not include the parking decal cost or imply an "inherent right" to have a vehicle on campus. Residence hall students may purchase the decal at the University Bookstore on the Hawai'i Loa campus. Residence Hall students must also register their vehicle with Residence Life.

Students living in the residence halls who desire to leave their vehicles on campus during the Winter Break need to purchase a Winter Break pass from the Bookstore.

All faculty and staff working at the Hawai'i Loa campus that drive their vehicle to work must have a current parking decal on their vehicle. The decal is provided free of charge and is valid for an entire academic year for faculty. Authorized university staff should request decals through their appropriate Vice President.
