Group Visits

We are excited for the opportunity to welcome your group to Virginia Tech!

Welcome!

Thank you for reviewing the information below before submitting your request.

Who should request a group visit?

A person who serves as a group coordinator should request a group visit if they are looking to bring 10 or more prospective students to visit campus with their Community-Based Organization (examples include Upward Bound, AVID, TRIO, etc.) or their school (high school, community college, or other institution). Students should be in 9th-12th grades or pursuing the transfer route. Requests can be submitted using the link below. Please note that we will be unable to accommodate a group of more than 50 prospective students.

If you have a group of nine or fewer prospective students, please email visit@vt.edu so we can direct you to a Daily Visit with space available for your group.

What does the visit include?

Your visit will include a 30-minute information session followed by an hour-long walking tour with our Hokie Ambassadors, who volunteer to serve as student tour guides. If you would like to schedule a college/department visit, please contact the college or department directly. We have included contacts for each college/department below. Please note that meals are not included on group visits. To inquire about group meals, please contact Conference and Guest Services at 540-231-5721.

How early should I request a visit?

Please submit your request at least one month ahead of time to ensure we have appropriate tour guide coverage. If your request comes in less than one month ahead of time, it is less likely that we will be able to fulfill your request. Please note that this is a request form and your visit is not confirmed by filling out this form. Requests are reviewed in the order they are received and may not be approved due to other groups that have been scheduled, space availability for your visit, and / or staffing availability. Please allow three business days for a response to your request.

When can my group visit?

We offer one group visit a day on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at either 9:30 a.m. or 12 p.m. We do not offer group tours when the university is closed or when classes are not in session. 

We are also unable to offer group visits during the following dates due to staff and student availability as we prepare for and execute our large-scale events:

  • September 26 - October 2, 2022
  • November 7 - 13, 2022
  • March 13 - April 15, 2023

 

What happens if we are unable to make it to campus at our scheduled time?

All of our group visits include a 15-minute grace period for arrival. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late, we will provide you with information for a self-guided tour experience. If plans have changed for your visit or your group is no longer able to make it to campus at the scheduled time, please notify us as soon as possible.
