For Immediate Release

Due to the seismic activity today, the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo will be closing its Hilo campus facilities effective immediately to allow students and employees to attend to personal business and priorities.

Individuals should feel safe to remain on campus in buildings, including students living in residence halls. All structures on campus were designed and built to resist seismic ground motion per County code and State requirements.

Campus will reopen tomorrow, Saturday, May 5, 2018, and continue with normal operations, including the Library and Student Life Center hours, if there is no additional seismic activity.
