Information for Military and Veterans

Serving Those Who Served

Villanova University has a long history of honoring and supporting students who served in our nation’s armed forces. Since its earliest days, countless numbers of service members and veterans have attended Villanova, enriching the campus and transforming the lives of others. Included among those veterans are Admiral William Fallon (former Commander of Pacific Command, then of Central Command) and General Anthony Zinni (former Commander of Central Command). They, along with thousands of notable alumni, have made a great difference in the world.  Hear from some of our past and current servicemembers and veterans via their testimonials!

Since World War II, Villanova has accepted many veterans who came back to school, either to begin or resume their education. In that same spirit, we welcome you to our campus and thank you for your service.  Villanova University is committed to supporting you as you begin this new chapter in your life. We look forward to partnering with you to facilitate your academic goals, and we are eager for your participation in our campus as we learn and grow together.
