A student must have his/her driver's license, current registration, proof of insurance, and safety check for the vehicle(s) which will be driven when purchasing a one-day pass for the first time. REMEMBER: THE VEHICLE MUST BELONG TO AN IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBER (MOTHER, FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER). The ‘Akahi Student Center normally opens at 7:00 a.m. One-day passes will be sold in the morning if spaces are still available and if there is an emergency. STUDENTS WHO FIND IT NECESSARY TO PURCHASE A ONE-DAY PASS BEFORE 7:30 A.M. THE DAY THEY NEED IT ARE NOT GUARANTEED A SPACE. SO, PLAN AHEAD. AN ALTERNATIVE IS TO PARK AT THE TERMINAL AND CATCH THE TERMINAL BUS TO CAMPUS. If a student parks on campus without a parking pass, driving privileges will be revoked for five days.

Maintaining a safe campus for students, staff, and visitors is everyone’s kuleana. One of the most common risks to community safety is unsafe driving habits. There were 48 motor vehicle-related accidents on campus between August and December 2017. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured. Driving safely on campus always calls for extra awareness due to large groups of students moving about the campus, vehicles entering/exiting parking lots and the presence of school buses, operations vehicles, delivery vehicles and utility vehicles. With the start of the 2nd semester of the school year we ask for everyone’s kōkua and drive with Aloha while on-campus and while driving in the neighborhoods beyond our gates and exits. It should be noted that Honolulu’s Mobile Electronic Devices ordinance has also been revised to include pedestrians viewing their phones while crossing a street. While the State and County traffic code (with exception of Disabled Parking violations) cannot be enforced on campus we ask that you follow the rules of the road so that our haumāna, faculty, staff and visitors will be safe during their travels on and off campus!
