    The Visitor and Undergraduate Admissions Center

You’ll never really “get” the Hokie Spirit until you’ve visited campus and walked among the Hokie Nation. As your first stop, the Visitor and Undergraduate Admissions Center provides parking passes, maps, directions, and other pertinent information that will help you navigate campus.

The center is at 925 Prices Fork Road, near The Inn at Virginia Tech.

The center is open 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday (7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. during the months of November through February), 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions staff is available 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Experience the past. Invent the future.

Prepare to spend some time browsing the center’s interactive exhibits that showcase Virginia Tech’s history, mission, academics, student life, and ongoing research and outreach — and get your picture taken with the HokieBird!

Parking on campus

Weekday visitors to campus must obtain a parking pass at the Visitor and Undergraduate Admissions Center if they wish to park on campus. 

A parking pass is not required to park at the center. Although passes to park on campus are not required on weekends, special parking rules prevail on days when the university is hosting home football and basketball games.

To facilitate the process of obtaining a visitor parking pass, the following information must be supplied when you enter the center: name, license plate number, and state where the vehicle is registered. 

Weekday parking rules are printed on the back of the pass, and the center's staff will be happy to explain these rules and direct visitors to appropriate parking areas. 

For more detailed information about parking on campus, visit the Parking and Transportation website. A printable sheet providing general guidelines and a map of parking areas is available.

Virginia Tech has a robust social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, just to name a few.
