Student Engagement and Campus Life

SECL is Getting Ready for Fall

Check for updates and information as we prepare for students to return to campus.



Student Engagement and Campus Life complements the academic experience by building communities, promoting holistic education, and cultivating environments through leadership, innovation, and service.

In accordance with Governor Ralph Northram and Virginia Tech’s guidance surrounding COVID-19, Student Engagement and Campus Life will be modifying operations and services in Squires Student Center, Johnston Student Center, and the Graduate Life Center. These are preventative measures to minimize health and safety risks to our students, staff and the Blacksburg community by reducing the density of our campus population.

Squires Student Center

Closed to the general public. Only open to Virginia Tech student community members with approved access. Swipe access is available at the College Avenue entrance. Monday – Friday: 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Johnston Student Center: Closed

The Graduate Life Center:

Closed to public access. Graduate students have 24/7 access with their Hokie Passport. Graduate School offices will be available Monday-Friday, 8am to 5pm.

Our Vision

To be a national leader in cultivating innovative environments and communities in order to provide transformative experiences for all Hokies.

Our Core Values

We believe in teamwork, integrity, development, equity, and being student-centered.
