Virginia Tech in Falls Church
In 1969 Virginia Tech launched its first northern Virginia graduate center in a Reston, Va., farmhouse, not far from Falls Church. Having outgrown that space by 1973, Virginia Tech moved to shared space with the University of Virginia on the first floor of the Dulles International Airport Gateway 1 building. In 1981, the two universities moved their graduate centers to Telestar Court in Falls Church where they remained for the next 16 years.
Then, in 1997, Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia dedicated the Northern Virginia Center (NVC), 7054 Haycock Road, a 105,000-square-foot building located adjacent to the West Falls Church Metro station.
Administrative offices for the center and for the Graduate School in the National Capital Region are headquartered in the Falls Church facility.
