Hawai‘i Community College was founded in Hilo in 1941 and has been proudly serving the Hawai‘i Island community ever since. After 15 years at various locations, the college settled at the present-day Manono campus in 1956. 

The Manono Campus at 1175 Manono Street in Hilo serves as the main campus and is home to many academic programs, student services and administrative offices. Hawai‘i CC also has programs and services on the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo campus, often referred to as the “upper campus.”
