The Hawai'i Loa campus is situated on 135 acres of lush, tropical landscape at the foot of the majestic Ko'olau mountain range in Kaneohe. The on-campus housing complex provides full academic year accommodations (fall, winter, and spring semesters) for students in six residence halls. Each hall is coed (men and women) and suites are single sex; however, floor assignments can have men and women on the same floor. Primarily, first-year (traditional freshman) students choose to live in the residence halls because of the convenient meal plan, quick access to the downtown campus from the Hawaii Loa campus by using the University's intercampus shuttle service, and strong community atmosphere.
Residence Life provides services, programs, and facilities designed to enhance students' educational experience. This is accomplished under the leadership of the residential life staff who assist students in developing leadership and life skills in a challenging and supportive atmosphere.
The Resident's Activities Council is a student-facilitated body that organizes activities to enhance the student-resident experience in university housing. Throughout the academic year, RAC sponsors periodic excursions to some of Hawaii's spectacular cultural and recreational sites, on-campus social events, and special dinners. The Hawai'i Loa campus offers recreational facilities that include basketball/volleyball courts, tennis courts, fitness center and a Student Center. Students participate in intramural sports throughout the academic year. Transportation and Residence Life team up to offer a free shuttle program, providing weekly transportation to the beach, shopping, Waikiki and other off-campus sites for residence hall students only.
For health and safety reasons smoking is not permitted inside the residence halls and residential life facilities and grounds. A designated smoking area is available in the residential life area.
Residence hall contracts are for the full academic year, and all payments, partial or full, are nonrefundable. Additional winter intercession (December) contracts are available, but without a meal plan.

- Double Occupancy Room: $3,915.00 per semester

- 14 meals per week: $2,700.00 per semester

All residents are provided with a copy of the HPU Student Handbook which includes the HPU Student Code of Conduct and Residence Life Information, Policies, and Procedures.

The possession or use of alcohol, drugs, or drug paraphernalia is prohibited.
