About Hampton University

Hampton University (HU) is a privately endowed, non-profit, non-sectarian, co-educational, historically black university located in southeastern Virginia. Hampton was founded in 1868 to educate newly-emancipated African Americans, and has since grown into a comprehensive University offering a broad range of technical, liberal arts, pre-professional, professional, and graduate degree programs. For over 130 years, Hampton University has held true to its mission-educating African Americans to be scholars and leaders nationally and internationally. As a small liberal arts institution, and a historically black university, Hampton University is a leader in its implementation and use of technology and continues to invest in the technologies that keep the institution on the leading edge. Hampton University's position as a national leader makes HU an obvious choice to serve other HBCUs as we collectively join to provide meaningful solutions for expanding digital opportunities to all communities.
