As the only public four-year university located in Leeward Oahu, the University of Hawaiʻi–West Oʻahu is committed to serving the interests of students and their families in the region. UH West O‘ahu embraces and fosters diversity on its campus and takes seriously its commitment to be responsible and accountable to its stakeholders, whether it be students, faculty, staff, the surrounding community or the state of Hawaiʻi.
A Sense of Community
Mele Honouliuli was written by Pu‘u Zablan and speaks to this important land where UH West O‘ahu calls home, located at the ahupua‘a Honouliuli in the moku of ‘Ewa.
Kūlana O Kapolei
Kūlana O Kapolei is helping UH West O‘ahu become a premier, transdisciplinary, indigenous-serving institution. Through this supportive and dynamic learning environment students will learn to embody Native Hawaiian values and perpetuate their core purpose – to establish and maintain aloha in all relationships with land, people and community.
Planning for Sustainability
UH West O‘ahu strives to do its share to make positive changes for the environment, whether it be through academic programs or its facilities. One highlight is a 500-kilowatt photovoltaic system that produces 12-15% of the campus’ electricity needs.
Senior Citizen Visitor Program
To promote diversity on campus and in the academic classroom, UH West O‘ahu extends special academic privileges to senior citizens by allowing them to participate in regular credit classes, free of charge, on a space available basis.
