Visitors & Undergraduate Admissions Center
GLAVÉ & HOLMES ARCHITECTURE (G&HA) completed a new 21,690-square-foot combined Visitor & Undergraduate Admissions Center for Virginia Tech. As the gateway to the campus, the new facility is a signature building for the university and serves as an information hub and focal point for the academic community. The architecture of the Visitor & Undergraduate Admissions Center combines elements of the traditional Collegiate Gothic with more contemporary interpretations, which integrates the building with the campus core. The Visitor Center presents an exhilarating view from an airy reception space through large glazed openings in a setting that is welcoming and accessible to guests.
The Center is a two-story building, clad in Hokie Stone, which includes a visitor reception area, exhibit gallery, assembly hall, conference rooms, and staff offices. The project is LEED certified.
