Student Engagement & Enrollment Services Dean of Students

Welcome to ODU!

The Dean of Students Office is a resource hub, comprised of caring and supportive staff members who provide guidance to students navigating their ODU journey.

We are here to help you navigate your campus experience. We are here to be your advocate, and to provide you with assistance if you need help managing a crisis. We can also help you understand ODU policy and to connect you with the many resources on our campus. Ultimately, we are here to help you be successful.

Please take a few minutes to review our website to familiarize yourself with our support and outreach programs. We encourage you to stop by the Dean of Students Office, follow us on Instagram, and let us know how we can help you.
