Visitors

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa provides visitors with a variety of parking locations within walking distance to any campus destination. As part of our institutional commitment to environmental sustainability, we would also like to encourage you to consider alternatives to driving to UH Mānoa alone. Please see the pages under Alternative Transportation for other commuting suggestions.

Special instructions for delivery, vendor services, consultants, and contractors.

Dole Street Parking Structure Automated Pilot Program

Beginning August 3, 2020, the Dole Street Parking Structure (Zone 22) will transition to an automated facility. Stall layouts have been reconfigured, with yellow visitor stalls on the ground floor, and all other floors being reserved for Zone 22 permit holders. Visitor parking will work similar to the green visitor stalls in Surface (Upper Campus) lots, with the exception of differing stall colors and parking rates.
