Clarence T.C. Ching Athletics Complex

Updated August 29

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa campus will limit on-campus activity on Friday, September 1 to accommodate anticipated heavy traffic for the Rainbow Warrior football team’s home opener against Stanford University at the Clarence T.C. Ching Athletics Complex. Kickoff for the nationally televised game is at 5 p.m. HST and a capacity crowd of 15,000 fans is expected.

Traffic in the area around campus is expected to be much heavier than normal beginning in the early afternoon.

The Zone 20 parking structure in lower campus will be closed on Friday, September 1 at 5 a.m. to prepare for the UH football game against Stanford. Only those with a football parking pass will be allowed to enter the parking structure that day. Any vehicles still in the structure after 5 a.m. on Friday may be towed at the owner’s expense. The structure will reopen to permit holders on Saturday at 8 a.m.

On Friday, September 1 until noon, Zone 20 permit holders may park in any unreserved stall on upper campus regardless of their designated zone. Employees and students who need to be on campus beyond noon must relocate their cars to any unreserved stall in Zone 5 near the Biomedical Sciences Building.

Hamilton Library, the Bookstore, Campus Center (including Sodexo eateries) and Residential Life will remain physically open on their regular schedule on September 1. The following will have shortened operating hours:

  • University Health Services: closing at noon, last patient appointments at 11 a.m.
  • Warrior Recreation Center: closing at noon
  • CSDC: closing at noon; last appointments at 11 a.m.
  • IT Center: closing at noon; walk-in support through the Help Desk Service Window will close at 11 a.m. The ITS Help Desk will remain operating as normal for email and phone support, and the ITS Labs will remain operating with Lab Monitors in Hamilton Library during the operating hours.

Other student success offices/programs will offer services virtually (online, via phone, etc.) during normal working hours.

The game was originally scheduled to be played at Aloha Stadium. When UH was abruptly notified that the stadium would no longer be able to host fans, Ching Complex was expanded from about 4,000 seats to 9,000 seats to support home football games. By the start of the 2023 football season, an expansion to 15,000 seats will be completed.

There will be no other home football games on Fridays until the stadium that will replace Aloha Stadium is open.
