Rich in history, steeped in tradition, Hampton University is a dynamic, progressive institution of higher education, providing a broad range of technical, liberal arts, and graduate degree programs. In addition to being one of the top historically black universities in the world, Hampton University is a tightly-knit community of learners and educators, representing 49 states and 35 territories and nations.
Hampton University is nestled along the banks of the Virginia Peninsula, near the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. The surrounding city of Hampton features a wide array of business and industrial enterprises, retail and residential areas, historical sites, and miles of waterfront and beaches. Attractions such as Fort Monroe, NASA Langley Research Center, and the Virginia Air and Space Center add to the splendor – and just plain fun – of the HU campus.
Student Support Services (SSS), a federal TRIO Program funded by the United States Department of Education to service one-hundred ninety eligible students, has been an integral part of the Hampton University community for over 40 years. Participants in our program have access to free tutoring, educational and personal counseling, grant aid, financial literacy initiatives, and social and cultural excursions.
