  • Interested in Hall or Room Transfer?

    September 16, 2020
    Are you interested in a hall or room transfer? The Fall 2020 open transfer period begins on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 and will continue through Friday, October 23, 2020.
    Simply download the form, fill out completely, then submit the form to Student Housing beginning September 16th. All Open Transfer Request Forms must be sent to our UH email account at uhmsh@hawaii.edu. All transfer requests will be done on a first-come, first-serve basis and are based on space availability.

    All residents must fill out their own individual transfer request form. For residents wanting to transfer with another person or in a group, all completed forms must have identical requests and be submitted together.

    Please continue to check your UH email account for transfer updates. Prior to your transfer being approved, you will receive a Transfer Request Acknowledgment Form. This form must be signed and returned to Student Housing. If your transfer request is approved, then you will receive a transfer confirmation email. A move date and time will be scheduled for you and your account will be adjusted accordingly. You must completely vacate your room and follow all check-out and check-in procedures established by your hall staff. You will be responsible for paying any rent increases and meal plan changes, resulting from your transfer request.

    If you should have any questions, please contact Student Housing Services.

  • Important Travel Update For Out-of-State Students

    August 04, 2020
    Aloha Rainbow Warrior! Details of the modified quarantine for out-of-state students have just been finalized.
    It allows out-of-state students who tested negative for COVID-19 enter a modified “bubble” quarantine within the university community―releasing them to participate in classes and safe university-sanctioned activities―rather than a strict lockdown. No one other than the student is eligible to participate.

    There are three travel options available to students that qualify you for the modified bubble quarantine:
    • Travel Option 1: You obtained a negative result for pre-travel COVID-19 test taken with 72 hours of travel to Hawaiʻi.
    • Travel Option 2: You took a COVID-19 test pre-travel and awaiting a test result after arrival in Hawaiʻi.
    • Travel Option 3: You did not take a COVID-19 test pre-travel and will take a test within 48 hours upon arrival in Hawaiʻi.
    Should you NOT take a COVID-19 test pre-travel or a test upon arrival in Hawai'i, you may disregard this email and do not need to fill out the form. You will enter the State's regular mandatory 14-day quarantine (not the modified bubble quarantine) and be on strict lockdown in an off-campus residence.

    Please confirm your travel option. You may choose only one. Detailed requirements for the travel options are included in the form.

    For questions concerning the modified quarantine program, please contact uhmq@hawaii.edu.

  • Guest Policy Change and Face Covering Requirement

    Apr 20, 2020
    Aloha Student Housing Residents,
    During this time, all Community Standards and policies still apply. Violations of policy will be documented by staff and addressed via the conduct process.

    GUEST POLICY – revised
    Due to our current COVID-19 circumstances, revisions to the Community Standards related to guests are as follows:
    1. No guests will be allowed in SHS Residence Halls and Apartments.
    • a. Residents can host one (1) guest who lives in the same hall or apartment complex.
    • b. If a resident is actively moving out, the resident can have one (1) guest who is actively assisting with the move out.
    2. Residents must obtain the consent of any/all roommate(s) before hosting a guest in their living space. (Sensitivity to concerns related to health and safety must be respected and prioritized.)

    In addition, please adhere to the following recommendations on social distancing:
    1. A minimum of six (6) feet between individuals is still the recommendation by the CDC.
    2. Main building entrances: allow others to exit/enter before you approach the door, while keeping at least six (6) feet away.
    3. Community kitchens, laundry rooms: if space does not allow for six (6) feet distance, wait for the other individual(s) to leave the space before entering.
    4. Community lounges and study rooms: these areas are closed. Usage of these spaces or moving of furniture in these spaces is prohibited.
    5. Elevators: only one passenger at a time. Exception is FH elevators which can accommodate two (2) passengers at a time.

    FACE COVERINGS – new Honolulu law (effective April 20, 2020)
    Mayor Kirk Caldwell signed Emergency Order No. 2020-07 mandating O‘ahu residents wear non-medical grade face coverings while in public to further limit the transmission and spread of coronavirus.
    Please see https://hnl.info/alerts/wcBody.php?i=14B for details and exceptions.
    Beginning April 20, 2020, face coverings should be worn in all public and common areas within Student Housing Services. For residents who do not have face coverings, SHS will provide face coverings at the Gateway Community Desk. Face coverings have been generously donated by Every1ne for One Hawaii, website: every1nehawaii.com.
