ODU Peninsula Center

Peninsula Graduate Center Open House, August 1986

The ODU Peninsula Center, located in Hampton, Virginia, is one of the three regional Higher Education Centers of Old Dominion University (ODU). The other two sites are located in Portsmouth and Virginia Beach, Virginia. Together, all three sites provide students with accessible, high quality education at three convenient locations in Hampton Roads. More information about the center can be found on the ODU Peninsula Center website.


In August 1986, ODU opened the Peninsula Graduate Center in Hampton to offer graduate engineering courses to students without traveling to Norfolk. Over time, the center broadened it’s scope and now offers classes in a variety of subjects.
