On Campus Housing
As a commuter campus, Kapiʻolani Community College (KCC) does not provide on campus housing.
The UH Mānoa campus has limited accommodations for students registered at UH system colleges on Oahu. These students must be enrolled in a degree or certificate program and be registered for a minimum of twelve credit hours while in residence. They are placed, however, after all Mānoa applicants are accommodated. Since Mānoa is a residential as well as commuter campus, their students are given priority.
For more information, visit UHM Student Housing.
Off Campus Housing
Student Housing Referral System (SHRS)
The SHRS Program exists to provide off campus housing referral information to students formally accepted into the Kapiʻolani Community College System. KCC encourages students seeking housing to reference the UHM Student Housing website for detailed information.
SHRS is also currently looking to compile a database of available housing in the community. Should you have a room for rent please print out the “Room Available Form” and fax or mail to the Honda International Center.

Any agreement students may enter into is solely between or amongst the involved parties.
