Visit

As Virginia Tech continues to observe the same safety precautions as the rest of our nation for COVID-19, we still want to make options available to see what it’s like to be a student here. We are working with campus partners to offer a growing list of options and videos, so visit the page below for updates!

NEW! Starting today, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will restart offering daily information sessions and campus tours in a virtual or online setting! These events require registration so make sure to do so today! Find out more or register today at the link below.


See Virginia Tech for yourself. Plan to visit our Blacksburg campus, offices in the National Capital Region, or one of our campus centers around the commonwealth.
