Study in tropical Honolulu at Hawaii Pacific University and immerse yourself in the cultural epicenter that is the island of Oahu. There’s a lot to love about Hawaii, including the languages, ethnicities, culture, music, and food. Oh, and did we mention the beaches, palm trees, and lush landscapes? You’ll divide your studies between the centrally located, seaside campus or a campus on 135 tropical acres fifteen minutes from downtown. HPU is one of the most diverse universities in the world, and we don’t mean species of flora and fauna! So, plan to meet people from all over the world, feast at a luau, catch a wave, and soak up this majestic island in the Pacific Ocean.
You will experience:
- Diverse student body with students from over 100 countries
- Campus located near beaches, rainforests, volcanoes, and national parks
- World-class academics with large variety of courses available
- Close to famous Waikiki Beach
- Support from site director
- Customized excursions to explore the island
Located on the "Big Island" of Oahu, this jewel in the Pacific is home to coveted landscapes and is one of the world's most popular tourist locations. When you arrive at Honolulu's airport, you’ll be greeted by one of our representatives with a flower lei—the custom greeting in Hawaii!
The warm, tropical climate lets you enjoy the outdoors at any time of the year. You can snorkel through vivid blue water, hike in a lush rainforest, explore active volcanoes, and try surfing Hawaii’s legendary waves. To get around the island of Oahu, there are plenty of buses, taxis, mopeds, bikes, and the Hawaii Pacific Shuttle.
Hawaii’s unique heritage has led to a fascinating melting pot of people with Asian, European, and Native American backgrounds. Thanks to this, you’ll enjoy delicious cuisine, a variety of historical buildings, and the chance to immerse yourself in a one-of-a-kind community. Hawaiians like to celebrate, and you can join them for festivals that include Whale Day, the Polynesian Festival, a hula competition at the Merrie Monarch Festival, the Hawaiian International Film Festival, Statehood Day, and the Coffee Festival. Your semester in Hawaii will expose you to an entirely different world within the US.
