All About

Living In Christopher Newport University, VA

Christopher Newport University, located in a coastal community in southwestern Virginia, is the newest comprehensive university in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and is named after the privateer and captain of a Virginia Company ship, which carried settlers to the area in 1607. Student living at CNU began in 1961, as an extension school for the College of William and Mary. The institution has since grown into an independent public university that offers a robust liberal arts curriculum and has become recognized as one the region's growing institutions of higher education.

Students at Christopher Newport University often live in dormitories or off campus housing, which includes university apartments. The school is located in the city of Newport News, Virginia, which offers a variety of parks, waterways, and vistas of the Hampton Roads harbor. Currently, more than 9,000 students, nearly evenly divided between undergraduates and postgraduates, attend CNU and are split among the available student housing options.

The university offers a wide variety of bachelor of arts and science degrees, as well as three master's degree programs, which require an additional year of study. These include Master of Science degrees in Applied Physics and Environmental Science, as well as a Master of Arts degree in Teaching. In 2011 the U.S. News and World Report recognized Christopher Newport University as the "Number Six Up-And-Coming University in the South."

Off campus housing presents a particular attraction to CNU students, primarily because of the beauty of the Newport News community. The CNU campus is conveniently located less than 2 miles from the waterfront, and along a main stretch called Warwick Boulevard, which leads to the inviting confines of Mariners Museum Park and Lake Maury. Options for recreation are plentiful near a university apartment, extending to four separate lakes, three large parks, and the James River Golf Course, all within 6 miles from campus.
