The University of Hawaiʻi - West Oʻahu, UHWO, or UH West Oʻahu, is one of ten branches of the University of Hawaiʻi system and is a public, co-ed, state university, with the newly built main campus located at 91-1001 Farrington Highway, in Kapolei, Hawaii.

Officially opened in January 1976, the school has been fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges since 1981. The school originally only offered upper division courses (third & fourth year studies) up until the Fall of 2007 when the school began offering courses across all four years of studies.

As the only public four-year university located in the West Oʻahu area, UH West Oʻahu is committed to the continuing development of the region through both innovative educational offerings and public service activities.

A new campus opened in August 2012 for the 2012-2013 school year. It relocated the school from its former location adjacent to Leeward Community College, to a location just over 5 miles (8.0 km) to the west-southwest in East Kapolei.
