2020-21 visitation information
We recognize that many students who are considering graduate education at Virginia Tech cannot visit the Blacksburg campus in Southwest Virginia, or our additional campuses in the greater Washington, D.C. metro area and in Roanoke due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. We've created several virtual tour videos to give you a sense of what the Blacksburg campus is like for graduate students.
You also can meet virtually with one of our recruitment office staff members. Please use this form to request a meeting.
We also encourage you to contact the department or departments you are considering.
Meet Your Department
Contact the department or departments that you’re interested in to set up a virtual meeting. They can introduce you to faculty members you’d be studying with and give you details about what it’s like to be a student in their programs.
You can contact your department directly, or we can help you set up a virtual meeting (but we ask that you give us one week’s notice).
Watch the following videos to learn more about the Blacksburg campus and the Graduate Life Center.
Self-guided Tour of Blacksburg Campus
Virginia Tech has developed a self-guided tour of the Blacksburg campus with guidebook.com. Undergraduate tour guides provide the narration. Users can choose form a 30-, 60-, or 90-minute tour, available on the downloadable guide, which can be found here.
In addition to the main Blacksburg campus, you can also visit our extended campuses, where we offer certain degree programs and graduate certificates.
Contact the visitor center for information about parking passes, maps, accessibility, where to stay, and sights to see while you’re here.
