The Maile Way gate to the UH Mānoa campus will close from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. every evening starting next Monday in a step to increase campus safety.
During those hours, the East-West Road gate will remain open to UHM students, staff and faculty.

A source of continuing concern to Campus Security in past years has been incidents in which outsiders have driven through campus late at night and been responsible for thefts and other problems.

The Maile Way Gate will be closed in both directions with the use of physical barriers — metal poles inserted in the driveway, with prominent warning signs posted and a flashing red light.
