This does not guarantee the ability to park directly in front of any Residence Hall. Freshman and Sophomore resident students are not permitted to park vehicles on University parking lots/areas. It is important that non-eligible resident students DO NOT bring their vehicles to campus or park in the residential areas surrounding Villanova since adjacent townships prohibit non-residential parking on many local streets.
