With most buildings constructed in the neo-Gothic (or Gothic Revival) architectural style using Hokie Stone — a native limestone throughout Southwest Virginia — the Virginia Tech campus is both dramatic and beautiful. But you needn’t take our word for it: See for yourself! 

Getting around campus couldn’t be easier; and if handheld maps aren’t your thing, we have the technology and the mobile apps to guide your exploration virtually.

  • Download and print campus maps in PDF format.
  • Request printed maps from the Marketing and Publications office by emailing
  • Browse all buildings on campus, including images, descriptions, histories, and unique facts.
