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

We are extremely proud of all our midshipmen and take great pride in their accomplishments as well as watching them develop into the next generation of our Nation’s leaders.

During the course of each year, our 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 items. Our cobblers repair 3,000 shoes, and the staff issues more than 85,000 textbooks.

NABSD also operates the 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 and through funding of club sports, extracurricular activities and many other quality of life functions. NABSD Retail and Dining establishments include:

Midshipmen Store Drydock Restaurant
Armel Leftwich Visitor Center Tours 1845 Coffee
USNA Gift Shop The Alley Restaurant Naval Academy Catering

These important activities would not be possible without our funding, so we are especially proud and honored to be a part of this giving back. When you shop or dine with us, you not only show your support for the U.S. Naval Academy, you give 100% of your proceeds to this fund.

Go Navy!
