In Latin, Villanova means "new home." Spend a day on our campus or explore virtually and you’ll see that we take that expression literally. Discover why so many students couldn’t wait to make it their new home. At Villanova, you’ll experience it all. Two hundred and sixty acres of lush greenery and beautiful collegiate architecture, just steps from Pennsylvania’s historic Main Line and minutes from the bustling city of Philadelphia. A climate that encompasses all four seasons, with mild spring mornings, crisp autumn afternoons and serenely snowy days.
