Welcome to the Community
The staff in the Office of Housing and Residence Life supports academic achievement and student development in a welcoming, safe, and inclusive community. Residents may participate in a variety of programs, events and activities; develop life-long skills; foster community life; and engage in various aspects of university life. For those seeking off-campus housing, the staff help with navigating the housing search process and provide on-campus resources to acclimate to university life (e.g., dining programs).
The Dean of Students, Dean of Students/Director of Conflict Resolution and Community Engagement, Area Coordinators, Coordinator of Housing and Residence Life, Graduate Assistant, Community Advisors, and office student employees make up the Office of Housing and Residence Life. The staff collaborates with various departments to offer events, activities, and programs.
The Area Coordinators (AC) are full-time live-in staff members who reside in the community and supervise the Community Advisors (CAs). CAs are upper-level students who live in the communities and support residents with acclimating to HPU, building relationships, getting involved, assisting in emergencies, and upholding university housing policies and procedures.

Shared Kuleana (Responsibility)
Campus safety and security at HPU is a shared kuleana. No campus or community is completely free from risk but the best protections against campus crime and to protect student health and safety is an alert, aware, and informed community. Safety depends on each member of the campus community taking the responsibility to protect themselves and others.
