War Memorial Chapel is available to members of the Virginia Tech Community for weddings and special events, Tuesday through Saturday. The Chapel is not available for use during university-observed holidays or on days when Virginia Tech hosts home football games.

As with other facilities that host weddings and special events, the prime dates and times (between April and August) are the first to be reserved. You are more likely to get ideal dates and times if you book your event at least six months to one year in advance.

Additionally, the Duck Pond and Old Dominion Ballroom are available to use for ceremonies, receptions, and special events. Costs and specifications vary for each venue and can be found on our website. If you are interested in reserving one of our venues, fill out the reservation form found in each section of our website and email it to our office at chapel@vt.edu.

My husband and I both attended Virginia Tech so when it was time to book our wedding venue we knew it had to be on campus. The War Memorial Chapel is classic, the perfect size, and doesn't need a whole lot of excess decor to make it feel special. I highly recommend renting candles through the chapel to add that little extra spark to a wedding. The staff including Issac and Sarah were a pleasure to work with and made sure everything ran smoothly.

This is a beautiful Chapel and I'm so glad my daughter and her fiance chose to hold their ceremony here. I highly recommend it, especially for Alumni. Issac and Sara were great to work with and everything was turnkey. We were really happy with the candles and lighting arrangements we chose and they were reasonable to rent. Any of our decorations and arrangements were returned to the Inn for us without worry. Very pleased with the services provided.

We LOVED our ceremony at the Duckpond Amphitheater on campus at Virginia Tech. We met and fell in love on campus so it was the perfect romantic location! Everyone was very helpful in the event planning department.

My husband and I met while we were students at Tech, so we had no doubt that we would get married at War Memorial Chapel. The space is absolutely perfect, and the people who work there are so nice and professional. Isaac was such a blessing--he helped us figure out some of the logistics of the day that we were unsure of, and he was willing to help us out with some of our crazier ideas!! If you have any ties to Tech, or a love of the campus and Blacksburg, this is definitely the best place to have your ceremony.

If you're a Virginia Tech alum who wants to get married in Blacksburg, consider no other option! Jaime was extremely helpful during the planning stages and Issac was a huge help the day of (I believe Jaime was celebrating her OWN marriage on our wedding day!) He jumped right in where Jaime left off and helped make our ceremony perfect!

This was a great ceremony site. Even though there are mostly college students on hand, they were very professional and helpful. The price is very reasonable, but of course you have to be affiliated with the school to rent it out. Loved everything about it (except for the statues on the back wall...)

We were able to get the chapel on the day/time we wanted. The chapel is a perfect size for a wedding, a very intimate setting. They have a lot of options to decorate the chapel, but it was a little pricey for an item I was not expecting to spend as much on.

The chapel was wonderful. It provided an intimate setting for our wedding ceremony. Located right in the middle of the Virginia Tech campus it was significant because that's where our relationship blossomed. I cooresponded with Iris Cabatit who was amazingly helpful and flexible. She emailed me numerous information which helped with the planning process. And as the date approached, she reminded me of important aspects of the ceremony and items to consider...stuff that I otherwise would not have thought of while in the midst of the last minute preparations. The interior of the chapel looked great, and with minimal decoration it provided great atmosphere for the wedding ceremony. We simply rented the candlelight package from the chapel and flower and isle runner were provided by our florist. And the photos came out great! The exterior provided great background for wedding photos. With the columns above the chapel and the Virginia Tech campus we had many photo opps. Upon first visit to the chapel I was concerned that it was a bit dark inside, however, I did not mind the use of flash photography during the ceremony. The photographers did not have any trouble with the lighting and produced amazing photos. If you do not want flash photography during the ceremony, work with the chapel staff to see if they can brighten the chapel by turning on the lights. I preferred the dimmed recessed lighting because it created a very romantic atmosphere. I highly recommend the chapel!

Jaime was amazing. I knew from the moment that I got engaged that I wanted to have the ceremony at War Memorial Chapel. Jaime made it so easy though. When I walked into her office, I was feeling completely frazzled by all the decisions that needed to be made. I told her what my ideas were for the wedding. She contributed her knowledge about the flow of the ceremonies in the past, and provided good reasons to alter it slightly. She was a great source of calm during the rehearsal and right before the wedding. I also have some great photos of her pinning the flowers on all the groomsmen.
