  Immigration Information - Accommodations


Norfolk State University's residential facilities accommodate approximately 1,900 students, and its two dining facilities provide meals for on-campus residents. Consideration for on-campus housing is given after the student has been admitted. Because on-campus housing is limited, it is important to complete the housing application and remit the housing deposit as soon as possible. Graduate housing is available.

For more information about housing on or off campus, please contact the Director of Residence Life/Housing, 700 Park Avenue, Norfolk State University, Norfolk, VA 23504, email The Office of Housing and Residence Life at housing@nsu.edu, or call the office at (866) 378-7747.
