If you're planning a visit to Roanoke College, you'll find a beautiful campus in a classic college town with a vibrant city and beautiful countryside just minutes away. We're only 10 minutes from the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport, with direct flights to more than nine cities in the Midwest and on the East Coast. Roanoke is on the Northeast Regional Amtrak line. We're 3–4 hours by car from Charlotte N.C., Richmond, Va., and Washington D.C.

Whatever your reason for visiting Roanoke College—a campus tour, business meeting, professional conference, athletic event or alumni gathering—please stay awhile! The Roanoke Valley, which includes the cities of Salem and Roanoke, the county of Roanoke and several other localities, offers you so much to do, with great restaurants, shopping and museums, plus a host of opportunities for outdoor recreation and adventure.  

A University of Kentucky study ranked the City of Roanoke's quality of life among the top 20 in the United States.
