The Office of the Dean of Women plays a significant role in providing an education for life for all students and women students in particular. It is dedicated to the promotion of learning, character building, leadership and service. The Office of the Dean of Women provides support services such as: housing, counseling, guidance, residential programming, and training in social and cultural values, conflict mediation, disciplinary adjudication, and maintenance of student locator systems for all students of Hampton University.

The department's goals of promoting student learning, building character, and assisting in the preparation of promising students for positions of leadership and service are designed to expand the University’s goals and values of respect, dignity, decency, and integrity. Although most of the department's service is geared to on-campus students, commuting students are served also. Through the promotion of and adherence to the Code of Conduct, student volunteerism and service learning activities, the department equips students to lead and serve in the global community of the twenty-first century.

The Dean of Women’s office jointly shares with the Office of the Dean of Men the responsibility for departmental programming, discipline, and behavior intervention, with emphasis on assisting students as they adjust or become acclimated with acceptable standards for student conduct and university community interaction. Management of the residential housing program is a primary responsibility of this area.
