Old Dominium University
Old Dominion University is Virginia's forward-focused public doctoral research university with rigorous academics, an energetic residential community, entrepreneurial research and collaboration, and initiatives that contribute nearly $2.1 billion annually to Virginia’s economy.
With 25,000 students from 117 countries and throughout the United States, campus life is a rich and welcoming mix of nationalities, cultures, viewpoints and life experiences. This provides a backdrop for personal growth and learning through leadership, service and social activities.
The University offers 73 bachelors, 43 masters, 22 doctoral degrees and two education specialist programs through its seven academic colleges.
Our professors are leaders, thinkers and doers in their fields. In fact, 29 of our faculty have been named among the best in the Commonwealth. Through their mentorship and classroom experience, ODU students will be more than prepared for life after graduation.
Entrepreneurship is built into our curriculum. ODU is innovative in its approach to education, service and career development. At ODU’s Strome Entrepreneurial Center, students, faculty and staff collaborate to develop innovative and creative thinking to launch ideas and businesses.
ODU is the second largest producer of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and health (STEM-H) graduates in Virginia. As STEM-H job opportunities grow, skills tied to those fields are vital to innovation and economic growth.
Named a “Military Friendly School” by G.I. Jobs Magazine for the last eight years, more than 26 percent of the Old Dominion student body has a direct link to the U.S. military. Our Military Connection Center is committed to assisting veterans, including active duty service members, reservists, guardsmen and their families to successfully navigate the transition to academic life.
