Auditor's report slams student housing conditions at University of Hawaii

Feb. 7, 2007
Report says living conditions in some residence halls and apartments may be hazardous to student health and safety.

A state auditor's report asserts that University of Hawaii at Manoa students live in neglected, unsafe and mismanaged residence halls. The report chastises the university administration for being preoccupied with building new residence halls instead of fixing existing buildings. It says that living conditions in some residence halls and apartments "may be hazardous to student health and safety." The report cites a lack of sprinkler systems in Johnson Hall, burst pipes and leaks that promote mold growth, and elevated walkways of "questionable stability" in the Hale Noelani apartment complex.
