Our stunning 260 acres are nestled in the safe, storied and lush Main Line, just 12 miles (19 km) west of Philadelphia, the most historic city in the United States. Should you need to expand your reach or just want to go adventuring, Washington DC is 135 miles (215 km) south and New York City is a mere 95 miles (150 km) north. Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) serves more than 120 cities worldwide with 1,000 daily flights.
Three campus rail stops provide quick access to all that Philadelphia has to offer: from culture to dining to the arts to professional sports. If shopping is your thing, turn to our car sharing service or free weekend shuttle to visit the King of Prussia Mall – one of America’s largest retail corridors. Outdoor enthusiasts, too, can tap into their interests with Valley Forge National Historical Park a short ride away.
The best way to learn about Villanova is to experience our suburban Philadelphia campus in person.
The Office of University Admission welcomes prospective students and their families to experience and learn about the distinct benefits of a Villanova education. Attend an admission presentation, take a tour, eat in our dining halls, meet our students and explore the Nova Nation!
Due to New Student Orientation, move-in and the start of classes, there will be no campus tours after August 11th. Nova Nation Presentations and campus tours will resume on Friday, August 25th. We encourage you to please wait and make your visit to campus after that date so that we can provide to you the best-possible visit experience!
