Fall Orientation

Move-in Day for Waterfront Lofts and Hawaii Loa Campus: The Housing and Residence Life Office is allowing students to move in as early as August 10th to allow time for the mandatory 14-day quarantine currently in place for those traveling into Hawai'i from out-of-state. HPU will not charge any additional fees for early occupancy prior to the start of classes. Please contact housing@hpu.edu for more information or with any questions you may have.


*Update 6/9/2020:
