Residents must be enrolled at the University of Hawaiʻi as full-time students during each semester of the academic year. A minimum of 12 credits (undergraduate), or 8 credits (graduate) per semester, is required to be a full-time student.

Full-time students enrolled at the University of Hawaiʻi at West Oahu, Honolulu Community College, Leeward Community College, Kapiolani Community College or Windward Community College are eligible to apply for housing. However, spaces will only be made available after all eligible full-time University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa students have been assigned.

Residents interested in living on campus during the summer must be registered for at least three units of credit for the duration of each six-week session that they intend to live on campus. Combined session residents must meet these eligibility criteria for both summer sessions and be registered for a minimum 6 credits or more with 3 credits of courses taken during each summer term.

Failure to comply with these eligibility criteria may be grounds for immediate contract termination.
