The Virginia Tech Visitors & Undergraduate Admissions Center has been awarded LEED® Certification, established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). LEED is the nation’s preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
As the gateway to the campus, the new 21,690 square foot Visitors & Undergraduate Admissions Center is a “signature building” for Virginia Tech. The architecture of the Visitors & Undergraduate Admissions Center combines elements of the traditional Collegiate Gothic with more contemporary interpretations, which integrates the building with the core campus. The Visitors Center presents an exhilarating view from an airy reception space through large glazed openings in a setting that is welcoming and accessible to the user.
The Center is a two-story building, clad in Hokie Stone, that includes a visitor reception area, exhibit gallery, assembly hall, conference rooms, and staff offices.
