2-year-old UH-West Oahu loses air conditioning


The University of Hawaii-West Oahu campus remained without air-conditioning Tuesday evening after its chiller units went down Monday morning, but officials say classes are still being taught.

Malfunctioning equipment knocked out AC in all five buildings on the Kapolei campus, which opened in fall 2012.

A university spokeswoman said in a statement that UH is working with a mechanical contractor to troubleshoot the problem, and that parts are being flown in from the East Coast.

There is no estimate for completion of the repairs, the university said.

In the meantime, faculty are being encouraged to pursue alternative methods of instructional delivery, utilize distance education capabilities, and modify their class teaching while repairs continue.
