Chaminade University



The 2016 Oceanic Popular Culture Association conference will be held in Honolulu, Hawaii at Chaminade University. Chaminade is an institution that prides itself on academic excellence, professional preparation, a supportive atmosphere, cultural awareness and understanding and the opportunity to give back to the community.

Established in 1955 by the Society of Mary, Chaminade University is 2.7 miles from Waikiki and 9.6 miles from the Honolulu International Airport. If coffee is what you crave, the closest coffee shop (which happens to be a Starbucks), is 3 minutes away or you can stop by Leonard’s bakery for fresh malasadas  on Kapahulu Ave. If you want a quick bite to eat between sessions but are worried about driving too far, right outside the Chaminade entrance there is an L&L Drive-Inn, Subway, The St. Louis Drive In, and Shaloha Pita. A little further down Waialae you’ll find a Times Supermarket and a Longs Drugs Store.

Like many universities, Chaminade can be difficult to navigate if you've never been here before. The biggest difficulty visitors face is finding the right Ching building. We have a Clarence T.C. Ching Hall and a Ching Conference Center. Ching Hall is the main building featured in the picture above, while Ching Conference Center is located on the second floor of Eiben Hall. This year's conference will take place in Eiben Hall check-in and registration at the Ching Conference Center.

Parking is available on the third road and in the parking structure.

When traveling around Honolulu, please keep in mind traffic conditions and adjust your plans accordingly. Weather should be sunny and bright but you may want to bring a light jacket or coat for the evening. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
