Should any student or faculty leader need special assistance (such as a wheelchair lift) please notify our program staff as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made prior to arrival. Our bus drivers will not entertain requests to be dropped off at any location other than the University of Hawai‘i or fieldtrip destination.

All Assumption of Risk and Liability and Medical Consent forms must be completed by each participant, including the faculty leader(s), and received by our program office prior to arrival. Should you anticipate any difficulty in submitting these documents prior to arrival, please contact our program office. Printable versions of both forms are available on-line for your convenience.

University Health Services will be available to your students with their University of Hawai‘i ID cards. University Health Services on campus is staffed by physicians, nurses and support staff providing a wide range of medical services. Participants should bring their health insurance information with them to the center. The center has a pharmacy, clinical laboratory, x-ray, as well as specialty clinics in women’s health, sports medicine, dermatology and orthopedic medicine. The hours of operation are Monday – Friday from 7:45 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Any medical emergency arising during off hours should be handled at one of the many hospitals located in Honolulu.

Campus Parking

Should one or more faculty leaders need a parking space on campus for a rented vehicle, our program staff may arrange for a campus parking pass. The cost of the parking pass varies depending on the number of days that parking is needed. Please be advised that our program coordinators cannot arrange parking passes for student participants, friends or spouses. We do not recommend allowing students to rent cars or mopeds.
