Fall 2019 Battalion photo


Hampton Roads Reserve Officers' Training Corps primary units are Old Dominion University, Norfolk State University, and Hampton University. Additionally, Old Dominion University is the host university for the two cross-town schools, Regent University and Tidewater Community College. We typically have between 150 and 175 midshipmen active in our unit. Hampton Roads Consortium is one of the best positioned units in the country.  It is a short drive to the world’s largest Naval Station and home of our Atlantic Fleet, Master Jet Base housing the majority of the Navy’s F-18 squadrons, and Little Creek Amphibious Base home to our East Coast SEAL Teams. The Navy and Marine Corps offer both scholarship and non-scholarship options for students who want to participate in the NROTC program.
