Who We Are

World Class Campus

Matching Christopher Newport’s strong academic reputation is the beauty of campus – a place where students learn in classrooms and labs equipped with the latest technology, and play out their dreams on the stages of the Ferguson Center for the Arts and on the fields and courts of outstanding athletics facilities. The Ferguson Center was designed by the firm of acclaimed architect I.M. Pei. Since its opening in 2005, more than two million people have attended performances by world-renowned entertainers.

The Paul and Rosemary Trible Library provides an unbeatable atmosphere for research, learning and scholarly interaction. Einstein’s Café is open for business on the ground floor and is a hub of campus activity.

Nearly 4,000 students live in award-winning residence halls and apartment suites with all the amenities and comforts of home. Every residential room has high-speed internet, satellite cable TV and electronic room access. All rooms are equipped with a microwave and mini-refrigerator or have kitchen access. Residents of on-campus apartments have their own bathroom and an in-unit washer and dryer.

Christopher Newport is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all members of the university community and their guests, and has a full-time, professionally trained police department on campus.

The University promotes ecological, environmental and social sustainability, and faculty, staff and students work together to conserve and manage resources.
