In these search-the-couch-for-loose-change times, the Rainbow Warriors will reside in the school's dance studios for the 19 days of training camp this August.
By staying in the studios, the Warriors will save up to $41,300 in housing costs.
It will cost $10,000 to rent 110 cots for the studios, which are located on the second floor of the athletic complex. Bathrooms and showers are available in the team's locker room on the ground floor.
In comparison, it would have cost $51,300 for the players to stay in the dormitories based on the double-occupancy rate of $50 per night. The daily dorm fee for each player would have been $20 for the room and $5 for mandatory laundry/cleaning service. The Warriors' request to do their own laundry — and save on the expense — was denied.
In 2012, UH split training-camp housing between the dormitories and Joint Base Pearl Harbor/Hickam. Last year, camp was split between the dance studios and the base.
