University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
Posted: Aug 15, 2011

The historic Johnson Hall at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa is reopening to student residents tomorrow morning after a $6.7 million, year-long renovation project that included major improvements to all 98 double rooms, lounges and offices, and installation of modern safety devices.
UH Mānoa’s oldest residence facility, Johnson Halls A and B were constructed in 1958 and 1962 at a cost of $897,000.  With its reopening, the majority of the nearly 4,000 Mānoa campus housing units are either new or newly renovated – and UH Mānoa will be housing a record-high number of students on campus. 
As part of Mānoa Move-In 2011, students will move into the newly refurbished Johnson Halls tomorrow from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m.
