Some faculty members at the University of Hawaii at Manoa who are living in university housing may be moving out after decades of calling the facility home.
University officials are now enforcing an old policy with some revisions. Faculty members will be on one-year leases with annual renewals for up to three years.
This comes after the UH Board of Regents made the decision last month saying they want to give housing opportunities to newly-recruited faculty.
"To be fair, transparent, so people can understand and can expect what they can receive and we can also allocate it in a way that it serves as many people as possible," said Regents Chair John Holzman.
The policy will affect three complexes in Manoa with a total of 200 apartments.
Currently a three-bedroom unit rents for $1,700. University officials have not set a time limit when the policy will be enforced saying this will be a gradual process looking at each families individual needs.
