Posted: May 15, 2023

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa kicks off hosting nine high school graduation ceremonies starting Tuesday May 16.

The Stan Sheriff Center has been hosting more high school graduation ceremonies since Aloha Stadium was shuttered at the end of 2020. This year, renovations to the Neal S. Blaisdell Center also limited the number of large locations that hold graduations.

Motorists and nearby residents should be aware of traffic delays in and around the UH Mānoa campus two hours before and one hour after each ceremony.

Additionally, the Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation is also repairing the pavement on the H-1 Freeway eastbound from Punahou Street overpass to the University Avenue off-ramp area from 8:15 p.m. to 5:15 a.m. Find details at the DOT website

On campus parking is available and costs $10 per vehicle.
