University of Hawai'i - West O'ahu

Places on Campus

UH West Oʻahu serves as a puʻuhonua, where one is nurtured and prepared with a solid foundation. It is a place where one goes to be cared for, to be safe, and to be re-energized, which extends beyond the campus in a synergetic relationship with the community. Reflective of its unique place and the culture of UH West Oʻahu, the University instills within its students, faculty, and staff a conscious responsibility toward respecting, caring for, and sustaining our ʻaina, both within the campus boundaries and beyond.

James & Abigail Campbell Library

The James & Abigail Campbell Library is a focal point on campus, where students, faculty, and the public intermingle in and around seating areas, study spaces, and computer desks bathed in natural light and high ceilings seemingly designed to inspire creative and critical thinking. The library creates a sense of place - and not just a space - on campus where the University community can connect and engage. It hosts musical performances, research workshops, and traveling exhibits focused on indigenous cultures, histories, and practices within its 60,000-square feet of space. To learn more about news and events at the library, visit E Kamakani Hou.

Hale Kuahuokalā and Student Organic Garden

Hale Kuahuokalā was constructed in December 2014 under the direction of Kumu Francis “Palani” Sinenci and Hālau Hale Kuhikuhi. Many hands from UH West O‘ahu and the community came together to kāko‘o the building of the hale. The name Kuahuokalā was given by Uncle Shad Kane due to its alignment with the sun's path. Kuahuokalā means "the marker of the sun." It is also an altar dedicated to the sun and an animated place for all people to honor growth, transformation, illumination, and life. Kuahuokalā is a gathering place for all students, staff, faculty, and the larger community to engage in a variety of academic, cultural, and community-based workshops. Kuahuokalā is nestled within UH West Oʻahu’s thriving Student Organic Garden, which is located to the west of the Laboratory Building and provides a half-acre learning center for students.
