Methods to find the housing information:
http://www.hawaiishomes.com/classifieds.html is a very powerful website from Honolulu Advertiser. If you want to live close to school, make sure you check the area of “University-Manoa”, “Punahou”, “McCully”, or part of “Makiki” & “Kaimuki”.
By the way, http://maps.yahoo.com/ may help you to find exactly the place you want.
For temporary house, please check from http://www.housing.hawaii.edu/och/basicoch/TempAccom.htm
Price estimation (base on the average level living condition):
Recommendation of living area:
I think Makiki area is good. Since there are lot apartments, building there, housing information is plenty. The price and neighborhood are ok.
Manoa area is good, but expensive.
Punahou area doesn’t provide much choice.
Normally, it is not easy to find a place very close to school. J
