Conference Housing


Conference Housing

Reservations are normally confirmed up to a year in advance.

Our facilities house international graduate students and research staff year round. A limited number of rooms are available for conference housing with priority given to groups whose objectives and interests complement the East-West Center mission.



Conference/groups eligible for housing must have an educational affiliation/sponsorship. 

Deposits, Requester Responsibility & Penalty

Advance deposits are required. This requirement will be waived if the requester guarantees in writing payment of possible penalty charges. The requester is responsible for the conduct of his/her guests as well as any losses, damages, penalty charges or unpaid room accounts.

Charges will be assessed for group cancellations or any unused rooms according to the following notification schedule: 

  • 60 days or more -- no charge
  • 30 - 59 days -- one night’s rent per room
  • less than 30 days -- two night’s rent per room.

Inquire about our “call-in” program that permits conference attendees to contact our office directly and arrange their own housing. This program frees the conference coordinator from the administrative and financial responsibilities of managing each attendee’s housing reservation. 

Check-ins & -outs

Check-ins & -outs are processed at the respective residence hall desks. Hale Manoa is open 24 hours. Lincoln Hall desk hours are 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.  (After-hour check-ins are processed at Hale Manoa).

Check-in time -- 2:00 p.m.
Check-out time -- 10:00 a.m.

Late check outs will result in a one night's room charge.
Please check with the Housing office for exceptions to this policy.



Normally, the requester is billed for all housing charges. Individuals can be responsible for their own housing costs, but they will be required to pay for their room charges upon check-in. Mastercard, Visa, traveler's checks and personal checks (US dollars) are accepted. Personal checks must be payable to the East-West Center for the exact amount only. Third party checks are not accepted.
