If you haven’t done so already, please kōkua (help) at the UH for Puna Classifieds.

Here is the current update on the response to the Puna lava flow from the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo and Hawaiʻi Community College. The full text of the update at the Puna Lava Flow information website, but here is a quick recap of new information as of Sept, 25.

Housing and Transportation: There are several postings today on the UH for Puna Classifieds, an online UH community bulletin board where you can post your housing and transportation needs and others can post what they can provide. Please use this resource if you need assistance or if you can kōkua with an extra room or lodging for our ʻohana.

Classes: We will have more information about courses next week, but if you have concerns or inquiries, please email uh4puna@hawaii.edu for information. For questions about withdrawals, UH Hilo students should contact Interim Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Gail Makuakane-Lundin at gailml@hawaii.edu or 808-932-7445, and Hawaiʻi Community College students should contact Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Jason Cifra at cifra@hawaii.edu or 808-934-2509.

Representatives from University Housing are ready to assist students as they transition to on-campus living.
