For over three decades, Villanova University, in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Association of College Admission Counseling (PACAC) has hosted the Main Line College Fair. With nearly 300 colleges in attendance, this is a great opportunity for local students to start their college search by learning more about the colleges and universities that they are interested in.

Villanova University is located 12 miles west of Center City Philadelphia in the heart of the historic Main Line. Located near the intersection of two major interstate highways, I-76 and I-476, Villanova's campus is easily accessible by car, commuter train, trolley, or bus.
