About Old Dominion University
Considerable growth in enrollment, the expansion of research facilities and preparation for the addition of graduate programs led the Board of Visitors to approve the name change to Old Dominion University. Now Old Dominion is a powerhouse for higher education with six colleges - Arts and Letters, Business, Education and Professional Studies, Engineering and Technology, Health Sciences, and Sciences, and the School of Cybersecurity. Planning is underway to establish a School of Data Science and a School of Supply Chain, Logistics, and Maritime Operations. Old Dominion has offered master?s degrees since 1964 and Ph.D.s since 1971. Students currently choose from 111 baccalaureate programs, 43 master?s programs, two education specialist programs and 22 doctoral programs.

Situated on 251 acres near downtown Norfolk, Old Dominion University?s main campus stretches from the Elizabeth River to the Lafayette River, and watching sunsets on the water is a natural pastime for students.

One of the most exciting developments on the campus today is the University Village, with its impressive centerpiece, the Ted Constant Convocation Center, which opened its doors in 2002 and hosts everything from basketball games to concerts to commencements.
