Location of Summer Session

The office of the Summer Session is located in 304 Wigwam West. The Wigwam building is one of several National Historical Landmarks located on our beautiful campus. Wigwam was constructed in 1878, and housed the first American Native male students. This more-than-a-hundred-year-old structure provides an interesting and pleasant center for the activities of the Summer Session operations.

A Message from the Director of the Summer Session

Welcome to the 2017 Summer Session at Hampton University! As you peruse the Summer Session Bulletin, you will find a variety of course offerings. Information about our special summer programs and workshops for children and young adults, as well as general information regarding admission to the Summer Session, registration, fees, resources and services.

We encourage you to take full advantage of all that our "Home by the Sea" has to offer. As you engage in concentrated study, please take time also to stroll along the waterfront, visit the internationally renowned HU Museum, view the Booker T. Washington monument, experience the majesty of the Emancipation Oak or gaze upon the colorful flags surrounding Ogden Circle. These are but a few of our campus treasures.

Summer Session at Hampton University will provide you with the opportunity for study in an intellectually stimulating and socially supportive environment. The Office of the Summer Session is ready to assist you in ensuring that your summer experience is an enriching and exciting one. Best wishes for a successful summer!
