Guidelines for Delivery

Delivery drivers should go to Lincoln Hall and call the phone number that is located on the front door.  Please note this in delivery instructions section, if available. 

Please Note:  The Lincoln Hall front desk is not always staffed.  If a delivery is attempted and there is no one at the front desk, a housing staff from Hale Manoa will walk to Lincoln Hall to receive and deliver the items.  Depending on the time of day, this may delay your delivery.

  • If you are ordering food after 4pm, it is recommended that you also call the Lincoln Hall front desk to let them know that they should expect a delivery.  If there is no one at the Lincoln Hall front desk, your call will automatically forward to the Hale Manoa front desk.
  • Deliveries must arrive before 8pm.
  • The best time for a delivery to arrive is between 1pm – 2pm, as that is the only time when there will always be someone at the Lincoln Hall front desk.  If at all possible, please try to have items delivered during this time.

Technology

Laptop Computer and Technology Considerations

If you are bringing a laptop, cell phone, camera or other electronic device, be sure to pack all your chargers. Many chargers for these devices are now dual voltage (110-220, verify what is printed on your devices) and can be used anywhere in the world. You will need to have a plug adaptor that works in the United States. We strongly advise you purchase the appropriate adaptors or converters in your country before departing for the program. For information on voltage and plugs, please see:  https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/world-electricity-guide.html.  Lincoln Hall where you will be staying does not have an international adaptor.

SIM Cards

SIM cards can be purchased at any T-Mobile location, which you can find at any large shopping malls.  The lowest price for a SIM card starts at US$53.00, which is for one month of unlimited call, text and data.  Although you must have an unlocked mobile phone in order to purchase a SIM card, there is no guarantee that a T-Mobile SIM card will work on all unlocked mobile phone.
