The Mental Wellness and Personal Development Service provides students with a confidential, safe space where they can seek out resources and engage in counseling.

The institution’s smoke-free policy:

On July 10, 2018 all University of Hawaiʻi campuses and facilities 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 (SB 134, Act 160, SLH 2018) now prohibits the use of tobacco products on all 10 UH campuses and university-owned facilities. We encourage everyone to refrain from using tobacco products while on the Hawaiʻi Community College campus. Tobacco products include, but are not limited to, cigarettes, cigars, pipes, smoking tobacco, electronic cigarettes, vapes and chewing tobacco.
