"In my experience growing up surrounded by the arts, I have learned so many important life skills, such as communication, time management, leadership, and organization. I am also deeply supportive of all forms of the arts and believe that there is something out there for everyone to enjoy."

–Ribhav Murria, architecture major and Moss Arts Center Ambassador

Student Engagement Is at the Heart of Our Programming

The Moss Arts Center brings artists from around the world to your campus door, with performances, exhibitions, and experiences designed to enhance not only your Virginia Tech experience, but the ways you see the world.  We offer special opportunities to engage with professional artists and explore the creative process, including:

  • workshops and master classes with visiting artists
  • lectures and Q&As
  • gallery tours and artist talks
  • hands-on experiences
  • community celebrations
  • and much more

We also value student voices and feature student talent on our stages and in our galleries.

Space to Study and Gather

We provide space that is welcoming and accessible for students. Take a study break in our lobbies and discover that we are so much more than a building with cool windows!

Student tickets for Moss Arts Center performances are only $10! This offer is available for any college or university student with a school ID, as well as youth ages 18 and under.

For Broadway productions, a limited number of tickets are available to Virginia Tech students at $10—so act fast; these go quickly!

Free Rush Tickets

Free, last-minute rush tickets are available for Virginia Tech students who sign up for text notifications. To sign up, text "arts" to 833-966-1838.

Student Jobs

Did you know that more than 100 student workers, including graduate assistants, help support the Moss Arts Center? Most students work for our patron services (ushers, gallery attendants, and box office attendants) and production teams, while positions are sometimes available in marketing and administration.

Student Ambassadors

Founded in 2015, the Moss Arts Center Ambassadors are a group of dedicated student volunteers who work together to build arts connections across the Virginia Tech campuses. Each fall the Moss Arts Center Ambassadors recruit fellow student arts lovers to join the team.
