Living on Campus


If you’re looking for an affordable solution that allows you convenient access to classrooms, instructors, and student activities, on-campus housing is the answer. Student housing is home to approximately 3,900 students. Facilities range from traditional residential halls, to co-ed halls, to wellness halls, and apartments.

The goal of UH Mānoa’s Student Housing Services is to provide students with a residential experience that is supportive of their academic, personal, and social growth. Student housing offers a variety of Residential Learning Programs that maximize the student academic experience while connecting the in-class and out-of-class learning opportunities.

Residential Learning Programs include Honors, College of Education, Language and Culture House, Health Professions, Native Hawaiian, Outdoor Recreation Learning, Pre-Law, and much more. We also have various locations across campus equipped for wireless connectivity.

Living on campus is a fun and memorable experience. You can run down to the Rec Center whenever you choose or easily have a late-night study session at the library. Or, you can leave your room ten minutes before class and still be on time. It has also been said that living on campus results in better grades. So if you are looking to make the most of your college experience, live on campus, where you will have the opportunity to get involved and make lifelong friendships.

Residential Dining

Residents living in the traditional residence halls are required to select and purchase a dining plan from the campus dining services, Sodexo. Residents can dine at either the Hale Aloha or Gateway House cafeterias, which offer a variety of culinary delights, as well as upper campus eateries.
