Keep in Mind...

The majority of Hampton Roads is connected by eight major bridge and tunnel systems, which can occasionally cause traffic delays and may impact your commute to Eastern Virginia Medical School and our partner facilities.

Getting to Hampton Roads

Driving to Norfolk from most U.S. locales is easy, as Interstates 64 and 264 link the region to all points to the North, South and West. Centrally located on the East Coast, Norfolk is approximately a four-hour drive to Washington, D.C., and six hours from Baltimore and Philadelphia. The campus is just a 20-minute drive from neighboring Virginia Beach and is located approximately 90 miles southeast of Richmond, the state capital.

The region is served primarily by the Norfolk International Airport (ORF), which is a 15-minute drive from the main campus. Visitors can also fly into Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport (PHF), an approximate 40-minute drive to Norfolk. 

Additionally, there are both Amtrak (train) and Greyhound (bus) stations located in downtown Norfolk.
