Living in Honolulu

Honolulu is a great place to live if you are looking for a close-knit community with all the conveniences of a large city. Honolulu has arts and entertainment, malls, and shopping opportunities similar to many large U.S. cities. For food, expect to find local food and international cuisines as well as familiar fast food chains and traditional American options.

Organized activities: If you live on-campus, many activities and outings are organized through Residential Life throughout the year. Residential Life activities provide great social opportunities for residents and introduce newcomers to the island culture. Student Support Services, Campus Ministry and many of the student organizations also host a variety of on and off campus activities.
