The campus is about 15 km from Guntur City. The main entrance is on the Guntur-Tenali Highway. Straight inside is the Administrative Block (A-Block). Vignan NTR Library is 10 meters from the main entrance. There is another entrance on the Tenali-Guntur Highway: Lara Entrance.

It is an established fact that human behavior is influenced by the surrounding. The serene atmosphere of a temple has an elevating effect on all of us. Guided by this fact, meticulous care has been taken in the design of the VFSTR campus. The beautifully landscaped campus has green tree lined avenues, lush green lawns, spacious classrooms, open corridors and large playgrounds. All this created a pleasant and stress free atmosphere for student to learn and develop. It is spread over 42.56 acres of land.
