Virginia Tech and the Visitor and Undergraduate Admissions Center are easily accessible from both major interstates in southwest Virginia.

To reach campus from Interstate 81 (southbound and northbound):

  2. Take Exit 118B onto U.S. 460 West. This exit connects directly to the Christiansburg Bypass. Follow the signs for Blacksburg/Virginia Tech. The U.S. 460 bypass between Blacksburg and Christiansburg is a limited-access highway from I-81 to the campus entrance.
