Residence Life


Developing friendships and experiencing communal living with fellow students in a stimulating community setting is an important source of personal growth during the college years. Chaminade provides residence halls on and off campus as one means of bringing together students from Hawaii, the Mainland, other Pacific Islands, and countries from around the world. These settings offer an opportunity for social, cultural, and intellectual exchange that enhance and expand upon the classroom experience.

Residence halls include the following:

On Campus:

Hale Lokelani

All first year, co-ed, double and tripled person furnished suites

Hale Pohaku

First year and upper-class, co-ed, five person furnished suites

Kieffer Hall

First year and upper-class female, tripled, double and single furnished rooms (respectively)

Off Campus:

Waialae Avenue

Upper-class, co-ed, two and three person furnished apartments

Through hall activities and residence hall governance, the residence life experience is far more than simply a place to live- it is a valuable aspect of the overall education process.

For students who desire non-Chaminade off-campus rentals, Residence Life maintains a listing of accommodations available to students. These listings are updated frequently and are usually for rooms and apartments located in areas close to the main campus.

New students who desire University housing are encouraged to apply on-line and submit a non-refundable $300 housing deposit once they are accepted to Chaminade University. Students submitting a housing contract, health forms and deposit by June 15th will be guaranteed university housing. After June 15th, space is assigned on a first come, first served basis. All students living in residence halls must show proof of health insurance before being assigned housing. For current residents who wish to reapply for housing, the housing renewal process for the next academic year occurs in the spring semester.
