About the Annandale Campus

In 1965, Northern Virginia Technical College opened for classes with 761 students in the Carlyn Springs Road warehouse, located in Bailey's Crossroads. To accommodate an ever-growing student body, the college purchased 78 acres in Annandale in 1966 to build the first campus site.

Originally known as the Central Campus, the Annandale Campus opened its first building in 1967. Today, Annandale is the largest campus site, offering more than 40 programs of study. The campus includes several classroom buildings, a gymnasium, theater, greenhouse, police station, the Ernst Community Cultural Center, and the Center for Workforce Development and Continuing Education.
