Student Life Center

The Student Life Center is currently closed, as a precautionary measure in response to the ongoing CoVID-19 situation.

Your safety is our primary concern. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation as we all work together to mitigate the spread of this virus. We are also aware that the membership you purchased is not being realized. Be assured that all the days that the Student Life Center is closed will be credited back to you. If your membership is expiring soon, please refrain from renewing your membership during this time.


The goal for the Student Life Center facility is to expose as many as possible of the UH Hilo Community to activities that will improve their quality of life. The Student Life Center strives to provide an open, safe environment for recreation, learning, and social interaction while meeting user demands. The primary purpose and focus for the new Student Life Center is for student usage. Thoughtful planning is given to facility policies and procedures to preserve student recreational programming space.
