EWC Housing

The Center has two housing facilities for its student scholarship recipients — Hale Manoa and Hale Kuahine. In addition, housing in these residence halls is available to students with no formal affiliation with the East-West Center, e.g., University of Hawaii graduate students as space permits. The Special Housing program accommodates graduate students whose academic work is related to the East-West Center mission of promoting better relations and understanding among the people and nations of the United States, Asia, and the Pacific.

Students applying for an East-West Center scholarship or program should disregard the Rate and Summary, Housing Application/Contract and Housing Statement sections.
