About University of Hawaii at Hilo

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo is a state university with a private college atmosphere. We offer small class sizes, a low faculty-to-student ratio and opportunities for research and hands-on learning.

As a public university, the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo has a unique position in the State—and country—by offering a rigorous and engaging curriculum at an affordable tuition rate. The admission requirements are moderately selective, allowing above-average students the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a small school experience.

UH Hilo is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

Campus information

The majority of UH Hilo classes, services and facilities are on the Main Campus. However, classes may meet at several locations across the island of Hawaiʻi, including the Manono campus in Hilo.

UHH is located in the town of Hilo which is about 400 km from Honolulu. Within 10 minutes of the main campus are the theaters, shopping malls, restaurants, as well as a major harbor and the Hilo International Airport. Public transportation system run by buses is available to take you to the popular areas around Hilo and the island.


The residence halls for students attending the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo are a special part of the University community. Residence halls house students from all the islands of Hawaiʻi along with students from the mainland and foreign countries. The UH Hilo University Housing Program is dedicated to providing you with an atmosphere that will give you a sense of belonging to the campus and help you quickly become a part of campus life.

The residence hall living experience will provide you with numerous personal and academic growth opportunities. All residence halls have trained staff to assist students with academic and personal development. They support and assist students in achieving the goals they have set for themselves and will help complement the academic education with exposure to cultural and social situations that enable students to develop and expand their "coping with life" skills.
