David Chinn

Associate Director for Facilities

David is Associate Director of Facilities with oversight of housekeeping, maintenance, renovations, budget, and operations. David has a bachelor of science degree in Civil Engineering and a master’s degree in Business Administration. Before working in Housing and Residence Life, David worked at Virginia Tech as Capital Projects Manager.

David's favorite part of his work with HRL is meeting students and hearing firsthand how our team can improve the on-campus facilities to facilitate their learning at Virginia Tech as they prepare to invent the future. 

Among his many personal pursuits is his barbeque expertise. According to David, "I am the defending Grand Champion of Emory and Henry’s Ampersand Day BBQ contest." 

David said the university’s motto, Ut Prosim attracted him me as a student more than 20 years ago and continues to be as important to him now as it was then -- to live a life of service.

Developer – Harmony – Connectedness – Belief – Empathy
