In January, eligible residents will receive detailed information by email from Residence Life about their housing options for the following year and instructions about participating in the housing selection process.
Who is Eligible to Participate?
Students will first need to confirm their intent to reside on-campus by completing the housing application and contract online at https://housing.villanova.edu. Students will be able to access, complete and submit an online housing application beginning in January. Students will also be able to enter their preferred roommate(s) as part of the housing application process.

Students who complete the housing application and contract will subsequently be issued a computer-generated random housing selection time. Separate selection times are generated for male and female students.
Please note: Factors such as previous housing assignment, assignment to a converted triple room, difficulties with roommates, facilities concerns, academic standing, participation in special activities and other factors are not considered when generating selection times.
In February, students will be able to choose their housing assignment and roommate(s) online at https://housing.villanova.edu at their designated housing selection time. The roommate with the earlier selection time will be able to secure housing for himself/herself and all of his/her roommates.
Please note: The demand to reside in certain halls, especially Sullivan and Sheehan Halls, often exceeds the capacity of those halls. It is possible that students with a later selection time may not secure their first or second choice of housing. It is important that students have thought about other housing options beyond their first or second choices.
