What is Virginia Tech really like? Meet some actual Virginia Tech students, check out the places you can live, and more.

Students Like You, Only Different

You won't find one type of person or one point of view that represents the school. Virginia Tech is all of us. Best to hear it for yourself.

Living On and Off Campus

Living in the residence halls puts you in the center of campus life. Join our community of 9,300 students who live on campus, and find your place at Virginia Tech.

Come to live, live to learn, and leave to change the world.

Moving off campus offers greater access to town facilities and a greater sense of self-reliance.

Get Involved

Whether you're looking for greek life or robot wars, there's a club for you. In fact, more than 700 student clubs and organizations are active on campus. And, hey, it only takes three people to start your own.
