Waterfront Lofts


The Waterfront Lofts are located on the downtown Honolulu waterfront, Piers 8 and 9, and border the iconic Aloha Tower that was built in 1926 to welcome passenger ship arrivals. The Waterfront Lofts are part of the Aloha Tower Marketplace, a vibrant, mixed-use residential and commercial center designed to serve the Hawai'i community and HPU students.

The 268-bed residential community is located on the second floor of the Aloha Tower Marketplace, and is comprised of single*-, double- and triple-occupancy bedroom options in a loft unit and a double-occupancy option in a studio unit. 

On the ground floor, students will have access to HPU facilities including the Learning Commons, ATM Lounge, multi-purpose rooms, HPU offices such as the Welcome Center, Student Life, Waterfront Lofts Housing, Student Government Association, and Campus Activities Board; and various retail and dining options. Living at the Waterfront Lofts also means easy access to many amenities, activities, and public transportation in downtown Honolulu.

All residents of the Waterfront Lofts are required to purchase a meal plan and may eat in the downtown dining room.  An Intercampus Shuttle departs from the downtown campus starting at 6:30 am every weekday, transporting students to the Hawaii Loa campus in Kaneohe.
*Single occupancy rooms are very limited and typically not available to incoming first-year students
