Plan a Visit
COVID-19 updates for prospective students
As Virginia Tech continues to observe the same safety precautions as the rest of our nation for COVID-19, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions is working to provide ways for you to make a virtual visit to the campus. The new Virtual VT Visit portal is now available so you can continue your college search or decision process. You can watch two Virginia Tech information sessions and also experience a campus tour, either with a Hokie Ambassador on the Guided 360 Virtual Tour or on your on through the self-guided version.
Come spend some time at Virginia Tech
What’s on your “must see” list for a campus visit? Our beautiful green spaces and Hokie Stone buildings? Where you’ll be taking classes? Where you’ll relax with friends in between classes? Where you’ll live? Or do you have some important questions that you want to ask?
We suggest signing up for a CNRE interest session in addition to the regular Office of Admissions campus tour and info session. But regardless of whether you are just starting your college search — or are already admitted — there are plenty of options for visiting Virginia Tech and experiencing life as a Hokie.
CNRE Interest Sessions
A 30-minutue virtual CNRE Interest Session is available so you can learn more about majors, hands-on experiences and other academic opportunities, faculty mentors, career preparation, and more.
VT Campus Tours and Info Sessions
You can make an online visit any time through the Office of Admissions’ new Virtual VT Visit portal. Watch two university info sessions and take a guided or self-guided campus tour through videos.
