Summer Institutes Housing and Meals
for the Institute will be reserved for participants at the East-West
Center’s faculty guesthouse, Lincoln Hall. Studio units
($30/night-monthly participant rate). All of the units in Lincoln Hall
include private bath, telephone, cable TV, internet access,
refrigerator, and ceiling fans. None of the units are air-conditioned.
If you prefer, arrangements can be made for you to stay at the Center’s
dormitory facility where single rooms (and shared bathrooms) are
available for $15/night or a double room at $23/night. Children under 18
are permitted only in Lincoln Hall.
of course, free to make rental arrangements off campus. But housing in
Honolulu, especially near the university, tends to be quite expensive
with one-bedroom apartments easily renting for over a thousand dollars
per month. And, while the bus system in Honolulu is quite good, staying
on campus in close proximity to the meeting rooms and library is not
only convenient, it encourages the kind of informal interaction with
other participants that
often is as important in having a great institute experience as the classroom activities.
should be made to arrive on June 11 and depart on July 8, 2017.
Participants are required to attend all institute sessions. We will end
with an optional final dinner on the 7th, so an evening departure is
possible if necessary. Participants wanting to arrive early or extend
their stay can do so on a space available basis at Lincoln Hall, or off
campus at a Waikiki hotel.
None of the studios have cooking facilities. But there are a number of
food courts and food trucks on the UH campus that cater to students and
staff during the work week. In addition, meal plans are available for
Institute participants who want that convenience. There are many
restaurants on and near the campus that are accessible to participants
on foot or by bus and that offer food from a wide range of cuisines from
inexpensive to fine-dining.
Although we encourage participants to consider attending the program
without family for most of the institute, we know that is not always
possible and almost never preferred. Child-care is available in summer
activities programs run by the City as well as from private preschools
in the range of $700/month. Applications should be made as early as
possible following acceptance into the seminar, ideally just after being
notified of acceptance into the institute.
