Hawaii Loa Campus Residence Halls

Hawaii Loa Residence Halls

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.  In Fall 2014, the halls will become an exclusively first-year freshman living and learning experience for freshman students.

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.
