Located in Campus Center Room 204, we offer many fun activities. From billiards to table tennis, we provide UH Hilo students with that much needed break in between studying.

Fall 2021 Hours

At this time, Da Lava Tube (Gameroom) is closed for recreational games. We expect to be ready for service no later than October 1st, 2021.

For the health and safety of our UH Hilo campus community, we are offering in-person and virtual-request services for new Campus IDs and validations for Fall 2021.

In order to receive the benefits and services that UH Hilo has to offer, your campus ID card must be validated each semester that you are enrolled or employed at UH Hilo. Campus ID Validations are free.

In-Person Services: Schedule your in-person appointment via the Campus Center Lava Landing Appointments webpage. We are open Monday thru Friday and closed on holidays and weekends. Appointment time slots are based on staff availability and are offered on a first-come first-served basis. All incoming and returning University of Hawaiʻi students, faculty, and staff are entitled to a campus ID card for $10.00. You must bring a government issued photo ID and be registered for classes at the time of your appointment.

Virtual Requests: Students are able to submit an online request for their new Campus ID card via our Virtual Campus ID Card Request form. The review and creation process may take up to two (2) business days after confirmation of payment has been made.
