These halls cluster around iconic Jefferson Hall, which was designed by the internationally acclaimed architect I.M. Pei. Jefferson Hall’s soaring arches face East-West Road and its lānai and garden rooms look out on a traditional Japanese garden. Jefferson Hall is home to the Hawai‘i Imin International Conference Center. Pei also designed the Center's high-rise residence hall, Hale Mānoa. All of the Center’s dorms are airy and surrounded by trees; two offer views of the  Mānoa Valley mountains and/or Diamond Head and the skyline from Waikīkī to downtown.

Graduate student, visitor, and conference housing is available to qualified individuals on a space-available basis.
