The Women's Center was founded in 1994 to serve the students, faculty, and staff of Virginia Tech. Our mission is to promote a Virginia Tech community that is safe, equitable, and supportive for women and that celebrates their experiences, achievements, and diversity.

A unit of the Office of the Provost, the Women's Center functions in a number of areas:

  • Individual Services, Counseling, and Advocacy
  • University-wide Advocacy
  • Educational Programming
  • Outreach
  • Gender-based Violence Awareness
  • Student Engagement through Volunteerism

Thank you for visiting our site.

Please feel free to explore the site or to visit the Center on the Virginia Tech campus. 


The Women's Center is located in the yellow house at 206 Washington Street (between Draper Road and Otey Street). We are conveniently located adjacent to campus and a block from Downtown Blacksburg.
