About Virginia Tech

Founded in 1872, Virginia Tech pushes the boundaries of knowledge by taking a hands-on, transdisciplinary approach to preparing students to be leaders and problem-solvers.

As the commonwealth’s most comprehensive university and its leading research institution, Virginia Tech offers about 280 undergraduate and graduate degree programs to more than 34,000 students and manages a research portfolio of more than $531 million.

The university fulfills its role as a land-grant institution by fostering a collaborative environment that integrates technology into all disciplines, so that the Virginia Tech community can serve as a force for positive change around the commonwealth, the country, and the world. Through experiential learning, future-focused research, and an inclusive, spirited culture, Virginia Tech strives to accomplish the charge of its motto Ut Prosim (That I May Serve).

Virginia Tech has a 2,600-acre campus in Blacksburg, Virginia, as well as educational and research facilities across the state, a study-abroad site in Switzerland, and a 1,800-acre agriculture research farm. The Blacksburg campus is located in Montgomery County in the New River Valley and is 38 miles southwest of Roanoke, Virginia.
