Aquatics Department at Villanova University

Villanova Pavillion pool

The Aquatics Department currently operates one competition-size swimming pool:

Pavilion Pool

The Pavilion Pool

The Pavilion facility features a 10 lane by 25 yard / 8 lane by 25 meter swimming pool.  It also includes a diving well and facilities for the diving team. The facility is available during recreational swim to anyone with a University issued ID - Students, Faculty, Staff, Alumni, and Friends of Villanova.

The Pavilion Pool and Locker Rooms will soon feature card readers at each entrance. A valid Wildcard will be required to access these areas at all times. Those using the pool must leave their University-issued identification card with the lifeguard prior to swimming and reclaim it when done.

In addition, a new policy has been implemented to manage locker use. Employees may purchase authorized locks (one-time fee of $10) and rent lockers on an annual basis ($20/year) in person through the Wildcard Office. Students and Friends of Villanova may use lockers on a daily basis only. Unauthorized locks will be removed regularly and locker contents discarded.
