Arriving on Campus

We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful campus! We hope the information below is helpful in planning your arrival to HPA.

Families flying through Honolulu (airport code: HNL), on the island of O’ahu, must take a 40-minute inter-island flight to Kona. When confirmed, please e-mail your flight itinerary to Ms. Ganley, travel coordinator, at

For students traveling alone, an HPA representative will meet and transport you to campus. International students, please be sure to give your passport, Form I-20, and I-94 card to the Business Office.
