Upper Quad Residential Facilities

Loading player for /content/dam/facilities_vt_edu/

The Upper Quad precinct is home to several academic and administrative buildings and functions as the heart of operations for the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets. It has been under construction since 2013 when Rasche and Brodie halls were demolished as part of a multi-faceted project to build two new state-of-the-art residence halls to house more than 1,100 cadets.

  • Rasche Hall was replaced in 2015 with the opening of Pearson Hall
  • Brodie Hall’s replacement, New Cadet Hall, opened in August at the start of the 2017-18 academic year.
  • Thomas Hall and Monteith Hall were demolished in 2017

Also as part of the project, Lane Hall, a symbol of the university’s early history and the corps’ proud traditions, has been preserved and placed on the National Registry of Historic Sites.
