The hallmark of a Villanova education is the personal attention you receive from faculty and staff. In addition to the faculty members who will provide you with guidance and innovative research opportunities, University staff members provide programs, activities and services to support your well-being on all levels: intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social and physical.

Looking beyond your years on campus, Villanova prepares its graduates for successful careers and rewarding lives. As you advance through Villanova, the Career Center will help you set and reach your own unique professional development goals. Approximately 4,000 jobs are posted for students each year. Advising sessions with career counselors, along with resources available through the Career Library, will help you choose your major and explore career options.
The Villanova University housing system consists of 26 residence halls, ranging in size from 30 to 540 residents with rooms varying in size and configuration. Your residence hall will serve as a crossroads of campus life; a place where friends hang-out, peers meet to study and collaborate, faculty visit to socialize and teach. Take a look inside!
Villanova's award-winning Dining Services offers 20 dining locations featuring a broad array of menu items, including ethnic, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. The meals you eat are more than delicious and nutritious; they're environmentally friendly with locally-grown produce, fair-trade coffee and rice, cage-free eggs and sustainable seafood.
Villanova is committed to maintaining a secure campus, and the Department of Public Safety—made up of responsive, well-trained and caring professionals—offers many resources for all members of the campus community.
The University is currently undertaking an initiative that will transform the campus landscape. This transformation includes the building of new residence halls, renovating existing residence halls to be more sustainable, renewing and expanding current academic space, and improving the campus landscape and accessibility. Some of these initiatives have already begun. Fedigan Hall was renovated in 2009 and converted to a "green" residence hall and is a model of sustainability on Villanova's campus. Two more residence halls—Sullivan and Sheehan—were converted to "green" status in the summer of 2011. Learn more about Villanova’s sustainability initiatives here.
