General Regulations


  1. University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, Hawaiʻi Community College and other UH-affiliated student CSOs or RISOs, and faculty/staff/administrative groups, departments and programs may reserve the Edwin H. Mookini Library Lanai (Library Lanai) for campus activities on a first-come, first-served basis. Membership in an organization by a member of the University community does not constitute University affiliation. Requests for personal use are not allowed. Direct questions about UH affiliation to the Campus Center Director.
  2. Use of the Campus Center Plaza is only open to University-affiliated groups.
  3. After agreeing to these regulations, the next step will take you to the online reservation form to request the Plaza. Until an email confirmation is sent by the Campus Center to you, the request is not final. Seven working days lead time is required for all reservations. Please do not publicize your event’s location until receiving confirmation of your reservation.
  4. It is critical that you stipulate whether you are seeking a “full” or “partial” reservation. A “full” reservation means no other group may use the Plaza during your reservation. A “partial” reservation means that others may share the use. If you have questions about which designation to use, please call us at 932-7365 so we may assist you.
  5. A confirmed reservation must be officially canceled 24 hours in advance. If the reservation is during non-regular hours, it must be cancelled 48 hours in advance. Non-cancellation may result in service fees and/or may cause suspension of scheduling privileges for a month.

Room Fees and Services Charges (where applicable)

Please review the estimated charges carefully and notify the CC office if there are any discrepancies or questions.
  2. The user must notify the CC office of any changes in the start and end of the reservation. Billing is based on reserved hours or actual use hours, whichever is greater.

Please contact the Campus Center the next business day at (808) 932-7365 to explain your group’s failure to show up. Failure to do so may result in suspension of use privileges and staff fees.
