Virginia Tech’s Potomac Yard campus has hit a snag and won’t open until spring 2025.

Project delays have become a local tradition around Potomac Yard. The school said the new Virginia Tech Innovation Campus will open in 2025 rather than later this year, as was planned when the project broke ground in 2021.

A release from Virginia Tech said graduate students who had been planning to attend the school this fall will instead continue attending classes at Virginia Tech’s facility in Falls Church. The deadline for fall 2024 admission is March 1.

“Our vision remains unchanged. We are building a community perfectly positioned to connect talented students with Northern Virginia’s growing tech ecosystem,” Lance Collins, vice president and executive director of the Innovation Campus, said in the release.

The school said, like the RiverRenew project, the Innovation Campus’s delays were caused by supply chain issues.

According to the release:

Virginia Tech broke ground on the Innovation Campus in September 2021 with plans to open this August. While the building’s opening has been delayed to the spring 2025 semester, enrollment and programming in the region continues to prosper. Innovation Campus students have attended classes in Falls Church since fall 2020.
