USNA  | Visiting the Yard

Q: I do not have a Military or USNA ID card, how do I gain access to the Naval Academy Complex?
A: Properly credentialed personnel with a government issued form of ID (i.e.: military identification, civilian government ID, USNA ID badge) may escort you through any gate. The general public may walk in through the Visitors Access Center at Gate 1 during general visiting hours. When the stadium courtesy shuttle is operating, you may access the Academy via this method. All visitors over the age of 16 must have a valid picture ID (i.e.: State issued driver's license, student I.D., or a government issued passport).
