Weekday visitors to the Blacksburg 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 Northern Virginia Center. Although passes to park on campus are not required on weekends, special parking rules apply on days when the university is hosting home football and basketball games.
Here are the recommendations for parking lots close to each of our branches:
Alumni Mall is closest to our main entrance, Squires Lot is close to our first floor entrance by the cafe. The Drillfield is unrestricted after 8pm weekdays and all day weekends.
Art + Architecture
Use the Perry Street Garage or what's left of the Derring lot.
Visitors can park in the lot next to the building, or park in the large residential parking lot next to the complex. Visitors must stop at the Veterinary Clinic service desk and get a visitor's pass to enter the building.
Northern Virginia Center Resource Center
Parking hang tags are available for a fee to faculty and staff that identify you as an affiliate of Virginia Tech and separate you from a Metro user. Students are issued a parking hangtag that identifies them as students and allows them into the West lot when it is closed to commuters. The student lot, located on the west side of the Center, is operated by Metro and is $3.75 per visit per day.
Students and visitors are allowed to park in the West Falls Church Metro lot when the other lots are full. However, parking in this lot requires the purchase and use of a SmartTrip card until 12 midnight. Please visit Metro's web site to buy a SmartTrip card online.
