There are currently six libraries under the Hampton University library structure, four of which are located on Hampton University's main campus.

The William R. and Norma B. Harvey library is the main academic library. The 125,000 square foot building is designed to deliver the library's services and resources to the academic community in the most efficient way. The Harvey Library houses the Center for Information Technology (CIT) which manages Hampton University's main computer lab and computer help center known as the Academic Technology Mall (ATM). Other departments under the Center for Information Technology include the Data Conversion Management Lab (DCML), Media Productions and Network Services.

The other campus libraries are the William H. Moses Jr. Architecture Library, the Music Library, and the Nursing Library.

The Hampton University College of Virginia Beach, a satellite campus of Hampton University, has an Information Resource Center that is open the same hours as the college facility (M-F from 7AM-10PM and Saturday 7AM-8PM); however the IRC is only staffed 40 hours per week, with varying hours.
