Greetings Newest Hamptonians,

It is an honor to officially welcome you to Hampton University, your new ‘Home by the Sea.’ You are about to begin one of the most exciting times in your life! You made the right choice to attend Hampton University and I look forward to your arrival in August.  This site was created to serve as the repository for information related to the enrollment process at Hampton University for new students. Completing six simple steps by June 30, 2024 will assist with a seamless transition to the HAMPTON EXPERIENCE.

Once you have completed the above steps by the due dates, you will be able to move into your residence hall on August 16th or 17th. Please refer to the Move-in Schedule. Stay connected with us by visiting this site frequently. The information here will have the most current information so you are informed. Please rely only on “official” University correspondence for your information. Unofficial social media chats and pages serve a purpose allowing parents and students to establish and build relationships based on a common bond. However, this should never be a source for official university business information. Please feel free to email vpstudentsuccess@hamptonu.edu for official university business information. The Office of Freshman Studies has planned an extensive orientation program in hopes of a smooth transition to college life at Hampton University. Welcome to THE HAMPTON EXPERIENCE!
