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

One of the greatest advantages of living on campus is meeting new people.

At Virginia Tech, you will be part of the 8,900+ students who call our residence halls home. Nobody provides housing closer to campus than we do.

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.
