Virtual Campus Visit Opportunities

We understand visiting a college campus is a big part of the college search and application process. We hope to have prospective students back on campus as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are offering multiple ways to connect with campus - our faculty, staff, and students virtually. No matter where you are in the process we want to make sure you have your questions answered and experience why Roanoke College is such a special place.

Perfect for rising seniors, juniors, and sophomores. Looking for general information about Roanoke?  Connect with us for a virtual information session, complete with a video tour and Q&A. We also have virtual tours of our residence halls available!

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 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.
