Welcome to SPAM (Student Parents At Mānoa). Our staff is available to provide assistance and student support during regular business hours. Due to COVID-19, our physical offices in QLC 211 are temporarily closed, so in-person drop-in services and lounge use are currently not available, but staff can be reached via email (, telephone (808-956-9306), or STAR Balance for questions or to schedule an appointment. All appointments will be conducted via telephone or online. Even though our doors are closed, we are here for you!

Unfortunately, due to social distancing and sanitization requirements, our lounge will not be available for student use this semester. We are sorry for this inconvenience, and look forward to when we are able to open the space for student use again in the future.
