Fitness Centers

There are three fitness centers on campus for use by Villanova students, faculty and staff. The fitness centers are located:

  • on the 3rd floor of the Davis Center for Athletics and Fitness (Main Campus)
  • in the basement of Stanford Hall (South Campus)
  • in the basement of Farley Hall (West Campus)

Please note: Users must present a valid Wildcard in order to enter the Fitness Centers. 

Towel Policy: Effective 10/2012

When you arrive at the Davis Center, before we can issue you a towel, you must have $1 on your Wildcard. Please see the front desk attendant and provide them with your Wildcard when asking for a towel. They will withdrawl from your account $1 and then issue you a towel.

When leaving the Davis Center, be sure to return your towel to the front desk attendant so they can refund you the $1 that they had withdrew from your account when issuing you a towel.

No other form of payment will be accepted for a gym towel, so please either visit the Wilcard Office on the first floor of Dougherty Hall during normal buisness hours (Monday-Friday 7:30am-5pm), or visit their website:

Thanks for your cooperation!
