The University of Hawaii at Mānoa is a public, co-educational university and is the main campus of the greater University of Hawaiʻi system. The school is located in Mānoa, an urban neighborhood community of Honolulu, Hawaiʻi, approximately three miles east and inland from downtown Honolulu and one mile from Ala Moana and Waikīkī. The campus occupies the eastern half of the mouth of the greater Mānoa Valley. It is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and is governed by the Hawaiʻi State Legislature and a semi-autonomous Board of Regents, which in turn hires a president to be administrator.

Prior to the year 2000, the University of Hawaiʻi's mens teams were all referred to as the Rainbow Warriors, complemented by an athletics logo featuring a rainbow. However, in response to complaints regarding the name and the logo from the football team, the school changed its athletics logo to a stylized "H" and allowed each team to pick its own team name. After several years of controversy, this ended in 2013, when all men's teams were once again known as "Rainbow Warriors."
