Naval Academy Business Services Division

Naval Academy Business Services Division (NABSD) is an integral part of every midshipman’s life, providing myriad products and services that are an essential part of Academy life.

We are extremely proud of the Brigade of Midshipmen and take great pride in their accomplishments as they develop into the next generation of our nation’s Navy and Marine Corps leaders.

During the course of each year, NABSD’s staff washes and dry cleans over 1.5 million pounds of clothing. Our barbers and beauticians provide over 50,000 haircuts. NABSD’s tailors alter and repair over 160,000 clothing and uniform items. Our cobblers repair 3,000 shoes, and the staff issues more than 85,000 textbooks.

All Profits Supports the Brigade of Midshipmen

NABSD also operates various retail and dining establishments on the Naval Academy Yard.  Every dollar of profit raised through the sale of goods and services allows NABSD to support the Brigade of Midshipmen by enhancing their cultural and educational experience through funding of club sports, extracurricular activities and many other quality of life functions. NABSD Retail and Dining establishments include:

  •  Armel Leftwich Visitor Center Tours

We fund the arts through our world-renowned Glee Club, support top level sports like the National Champion Club Softball Team and host Brigade-building events like the Army-Navy Pep Rally.
Examples of other activities we support include:

  • Navy Spirit Team
  • Drum and Bugle Corps
  • Silent Drill Team
  • Men’s and Women’s Rugby Teams
  • Men’s and Women’s Hockey Teams
  • And more!

These important activities would not be possible without our funding, so we are especially proud and honored to play our part in this. When you shop or dine with us, you not only show your support for the U.S. Naval Academy, all of the proceeds  contribute to this effort.
