The Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale is located on Little River Turnpike in Annandale, Virginia, a Northern Virginia suburb of Washington in Fairfax County. The campus is about a mile outside the Capital Beltway at exit 52. The campus consists of eight main buildings: the Godwin (CG) Building, the Foodservice (CF) Building, the Classroom (CC) Building, the TV Tech (CT) Building, the McDiarmid (CM) Building, the Ernst Cultural Community Center (CE), the Shuler (CS) Building, and the CN (formerly Nursing) Building. Additionally, there are several other buildings on the campus, such as the campus police station, a greenhouse, and several maintenance buildings. There is a six-story parking garage next to the CN Building, and several large parking lots behind the campus. The back part of the campus is on a large, steep hill; because of this, the parking lot entrance to the CM Building is on the first floor, but the entrance from the terrace between the different buildings is on the third floor.
Bus service is provided to the campus by Metrobus. This campus serves most of Fairfax County.
The Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale is also home to the Lifetime Learning Institute of Northern Virginia (LLI). The Lifetime Learning Institute of Northern Virginia (LLI) is a non-profit, member-run organization of adults age 50 and over who desire to pursue enriching cultural and educational experiences. These experiences are obtained through classroom instruction, travel, discussions, and social interaction with peers.
