Large building in the center with blue windows is the Pacific Ocean Science & Technology (POST) where SOEST and several seafloor mapping colleagues are housed.

Entrance to UH faculty apartment complex right next to campus, where my family used to live in 1967 when my mom was on the faculty.

UH faculty housing

Across the street from faculty housing is the Center for Hawaiian Studies (the Kamakakuokalani Building). I'm not sure, but I THINK this is where I used to go to first grade back in 1967.
