Student Support

Each student in the resident course is issued books, readings, iPads and course materials at no cost. iPads and nearly all materials must be returned. Additionally there is a online support component via Blackboard as well as the library. Student CAC readers are available so that students can also access the Naval War College website from home.

Learning Commons

The Learning Commons is a dynamic learning environment intended to engage students in meaningful ways outside of the classroom. It serves as a campus crossroads—a hub of activity where students from different backgrounds mix, discover shared interests, and work alone or collaboratively in a comfortable, welcoming environment.
