Leeward CC Student Resources
The LRC is a friendly place where students can develop confidence in their own abilities, get help with their courses, and strengthen their learning skills. We offer a variety of types of help, including tutoring and many other services.
The mission of the Learning Resource Center is to:
- help students succeed in their courses;
- help students become better learners;
- help students at all levels of ability and preparation;
- provide LRC student employees with opportunities for personal and professional development;
- provide students with a comfortable, supportive, and attractive learning environment;
- assist faculty by providing supplemental teaching materials and support services.
The Leeward CC Library is on the second floor and near the center staircase on the Pearl City campus. The Library has a diverse collection of books and services. The Library can also assist you in borrowing books or materials from the other libraries in the university system.
The computer labs are open to all UH students but you must bring your UH student ID card. There are two open labs for Windows users: BS-109 and BE-226. There are two Macintosh open labs (if there are no classes in the lab) in BS-103 and BS-104.
If you have a disability (physical, learning, psychiatric, vision or hearing) that could affect your academic performance, talk with the friendly folks in the Kako`o `Ike (KI) program. They can help you both in and out of class. The KI program is in room L-208, on the right side of the library (look for the sign on the wall) and the phone number is 455-0421.
