Summer Housing

Past experience has shown that summer session students prefer as much flexibility as possible in selecting and arranging their accommodations in Hawai‘i. Each student is responsible for arranging his or her own accommodations in Hawai‘i. The Hawai‘i Summer Law Program has negotiated special rates to assist students in locating suitable housing but is not responsible for making arrangements or for any errors that may occur. Students should contact housing providers directly for reservations and for rates.

On-Campus Housing

On-campus housing is generally the cheapest and most convenient housing option. Room rates range from $500-800 from June 22- Aug. 8, with a mandatory meal plan, which is about $10 per day for breakfast and dinner. To apply for housing, you must fill out and submit the Housing Application, which asks for your Summer Law Student I.D. number. Student I.D. numbers will be given out upon Admission to the Program. Applications will be ready in late February on the UH Housing website.

Application for admission to the Hawai‘i. Summer Law Program and applications for University housing are separate procedures. Admission to one does not signify admission to the other.

Off-Campus Housing

If you choose to live off-campus, make housing arrangements well before your arrival. Rental rates in Honolulu are high and competition for available space is keen. Students contract for off-campus housing directly with the landlord. There is no place on campus to which luggage or mail may be forwarded ahead of arrival, so plan accordingly.

University Housing Referral Service provides listings of off-campus housing options, but to login, you will need your Student I.D. number.

The Atherton YMCA provides dorm-style housing that is located across the street from the University campus. You may contact Resident Coordinator Michael Nakao at (808) 946-0253 or
