Welcome to Old Dominion University's Regional Higher Education Centers!

ODU-Virginia Beach, Peninsula, and Tri-Cities Centers were established more than 30 years ago to serve our diverse commuter students, whether undergraduate or Graduate, full- or part-time, transfer, traditional age, adult, and/or military-affiliated.

Homes-away-from-home for Monarchs and friends throughout Hampton Roads, each Center offers degree and certification programs so students in the localities of Virginia Beach, Hampton, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Chesapeake, and beyond can meet their educational needs without traveling to the Norfolk campus. Our Centers also provide student success services to support timely degree completion, and quality space for continuing education and professional development activities.

Key graduate and undergraduate degree and certificate programs available at the Centers draw from the university's six academic colleges and include: business (BSBA, MSA), communications (BS), education and teacher preparation (BS leading to 5th-year MSED), engineering technology and engineering management (BS & MS), nursing (DNP), psychology, work and professional studies, and more. Degree and non-credit programming is available through a range of effective educational models, from live, face-to-face classroom instruction to two-way videoconferencing, on-line, and hybrid courses. Technology training and support is available for faculty and students.
