A Multi-Campus Presence
Most of our degree programs are based in Blacksburg, Virginia, on the Virginia Tech main campus. However, we have additional locations in the Commonwealth and in Europe.
The Washington-Alexandria Architecture Center in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, offers graduate degrees in architecture.
Beyond the state, we also have a presence internationally, with Virginia Tech’s Switzerland campus. Located in Riva San Vitale, the Steger Center for International Scholarship provides an important home base for many of our students as they spend a semester abroad, studying there and exploring the surrounding countries.
