Residence Life

Developing friendships and experiencing community 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 around the globe. These settings offer an opportunity for social, cultural, and intellectual exchange that enhances and expands upon the classroom experience.

Residence halls include the following:


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, doubled, and single furnished rooms (respectively)


Waialae Avenue

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

Through hall activities hosted by the Resident Assistants and the Residence Hall Association, the campus living experience is a valuable aspect of the overall education process.

New students who would like to live in University housing are encouraged to apply online and submit a non-refundable $300 housing deposit once they are accepted to Chaminade University. Students submitting a housing agreement, health forms, and deposit by June 15th will be given priority for 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.
