Visit Villanova University

The best way to learn about Villanova is to experience our campus in person. The Office of University Admission welcomes admitted students and their families to experience and learn about the distinct benefits of a Villanova education!

Registration is strongly encouraged so that we may communicate with you regarding the details of your visit, or any changes to our schedule.  The Office of University Admission is located on the ground level of Austin Hall.

Villanova is pleased to welcome guests with disabilities or others who need special assistance.  Please be sure to request accommodations in advance by contacting the Office of University Admission at 610-519-4000 or



The Admission Visitors Lot and other major parking lots are now closed as we embark upon Phases I and II of the Design Concept for Lancaster Avenue project.  All Admission visitors should instead park in the Main Parking Lot until further notice.  Should there not be available parking in that lot, overflow parking will be available in all parking lots on South Campus.  

  • Click here to download a printable Campus Map with building key that also highlights the areas currently under construction.
  • Main Parking Lot is indicated on the map south of Lancaster Avenue and west of Ithan Avenue.  It can be accessed via entrances from both streets.
  • South Campus can be accessed by turning south on Ithan Avenue and proceeding under the train bridge to the first driveway.  Watch for signage directing you to South Campus on your left.  You may park in any legal parking space that you find once entering South Campus.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you during your visit to campus.  As a result of these possible challenges, we now recommend that you plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your Nova Nation Presentation or Campus Tour in order to provide the necessary time to find parking and then make your way to the Office of University Admission in Austin HallShould you have any questions about these directions, please contact our office at 610-519-4000 or
