Construction Projects

Second Flagpole

Construction work began on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 for the installation of the College's second flagpole on the Pearl City campus.  Several parking stalls directly mauka of the Bus Stop pavilion will be reserved for contractor bins and equipment.  Please be aware and respectful of the construction barriers that will be in place.

This project is part of the UH system initiative to install two flag poles on each of the main campuses for all ten colleges of universities of the UH system.

First Week Fall 2018

All the construction on campus will result in improved facilities, but right now, it can be challenging to find your class, or the easiest way to get to counseling! Sp we thought a bright, airy contest would lighten the day! Last night we placed 4 balloon clusters on campus. When you see one, snap a selfie or a photo of a friend and share on Instagram with #FirstWeekLeeward.

Tobacco Free

On July 10, 2018 Leeward Community College joined all University of Hawaiʻi campuses and facilities and became tobacco-free, joining more than 2,000 U.S. universities and colleges in an effort to provide a healthy environment for all students, faculty and staff.

Hawaiʻi state law now prohibits the use of tobacco products on all 10 UH campuses and university-owned facilities.

Pardon the inconvenience! The long-awaited renovations on our Theatre will begin on Monday, October 10. Contractors will be restricting access to all areas around the Theatre. At the same time, the Diamond Head portables are also being renovated. All this construction work will impact pedestrian and bike access, especially from the Diamond Head parking areas. The map above indicates access from the side parking lots to campus buildings.

During the project, anticipated to take approximately one year, pedestrian access will be restricted:

The Greening of the Green Room

Mike Harada and student Sasha Lee

A beautiful mural graces the walls of the Richard Aadland Green Room, located in the basement level of The Leeward Theatre.  Inspired by French painter, Henri Rousseau, Leeward CC student Sachiyo “Sasha” Lee designed and painted the mural with help from friends Jordan Miller and Kelen Uslan.

The project was supervised by Assistant Professor Michael Harada, who also helped with the overall vision of the mural.
