Old Dominion University

Updated: May 13, 2008

Located in historic Norfolk, Va., the 188 acres of the Old Dominion University campus stretch from the Elizabeth River to the Lafayette River. Although situated in a metropolitan setting, the University offers a small-college look and feel, with tree-lined walkways, a mix of old and new buildings, and colorful gardens and ponds. Founded in 1930 as a division of the College of William and Mary, Old Dominion has grown into its own over the years and is now one of only 101 public universities with a Carnegie/Doctoral Research-Extensive distinction.

With an enrollment of more than 22,000 students from all 50 states and more than 100 nations, Old Dominion offers 68 bachelor’s, 60 master’s and 35 doctoral degree programs through its six colleges. The university, whose alumni number 102,446, conferred 4,236 degrees in 2006-07.


Old Dominion provides innovative and engaging teaching in nationally recognized programs such as aerospace engineering, bioelectrics, chemistry (biomass fuels), creative writing, criminal justice, electrical and computer engineering, engineering management and systems engineering, finance, history, international business, mathematics, modeling and simulation, nuclear physics, nursing, oceanography, physical therapy, psychology, sensors and robotics, special education and technology teacher education. ODU ranks third among all Virginia colleges and universities for the number of Outstanding Faculty Awards it has received in the State Council of Higher Education’s annual recognition program.

In addition to its 185-acre main campus in Norfolk, Old Dominion has four higher education centers. The university’s thriving distance learning network, with more than 45 locations, partners with nearly all of Virginia’s community colleges and extends to sites in Arizona, Georgia and Washington.
