The $32.5 million Hale ‘Alahonua residence hall (formerly referred to as University Village, Phase I), fulfills the need for more on-campus housing by providing approximately 300 additional beds in suite-style residence halls. Hale ‘Alahonua, or "the breeze upon which the fragrance of earth is carried," spans 105,505 square-feet and features a trio of three-story residential wings comprised of two single-person bedroom suites measuring 324 square-feet that include bathroom and shower facilities with an entry lounge.
A 9,581 square-foot, one-story Student Life common area connects the three wings, two exterior courtyards, and features a laundry area, mailing facilities, study/conference rooms, a computer lab, recreational and TV lounge and two kitchens that provide residents with a "home away from home."
The grand opening for Hale ‘Alahonua was on Monday, August 19, 2013. The residence hall was designed by Mitsunaga and Associates, Inc. (MAI), built by Albert C. Kobayashi, Inc. and managed by SSFM International.
