Physical Access

This section provides the most useful information about physical access on campus. Follow the links shared below:

Reporting Physical Barriers

If you encounter any physical access issues on campus, you can report them through the Office for Equity and Accessibility's Report a Physical Barrier form. You may use this form for things like an accessible door button not working in a building you have class in or a sidewalk that is not cleared of snow.

Finding Your Way

Here is a link to Virginia Tech’s Interactive Campus Map. To view accessibility options, go to the “Layers” tab and click on the “X” next to “Accessibility”. This will allow you to see parking spaces, curb cuts, elevator locations, accessible entrances, etc.

 

The Hokie Bike Hub located in the Alternative Transportation Center on the ground floor of the Perry Street Parking Garage (1330 Perry Street) offers tools and resources for self-service wheelchair repairs.

BT ACCESS runs any time and in any service area that the regular BT busses do, but is not limited to bus stops.
