Students Enjoy New Student Union

HPU Students at Sharky's Cove

HPU announced its new student union called Sharky’s Cove at Aloha Tower Marketplace. The student union is open to all students and features a soda bar, foosball and ping pong tables, and a digital jukebox. 

“The new student union represents HPU’s commitment to a student-centered experience,” said HPU President John Gotanda. “Students will enjoy a fun and welcoming ocean-front space where they can socialize with friends, relax, have a snack, or catch up on studying. 

Sharky’s Cove plans to host a series of small concerts that will feature some of Hawai’i’s top local musicians. The union’s furniture has been socially distanced and there will be reduced capacity. Proof of vaccination, or a negative covid test, is required for entry. 

The student union opened at the start of the fall 2021 academic term. Its location is panoramic and ideal, located right at the Aloha Tower waterfront facing the harbor and an endless blue sea.
