EXPERIENCE WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A WILDCAT

There's no better way to get to know Villanova than to explore our campus yourself. The Office of Undergraduate Admission welcomes prospective students and their families to experience and learn about the distinct benefits of a Villanova education. Take a tour, meet our students and explore the Nova Nation!

NOVA NATION PRESENTATIONS AND CAMPUS TOURS

Student-led campus walking tours are offered most weekdays to pre-registered guests only. You will have the chance to see our beautiful campus in-person and have your questions answered by a current student! The walking tour typically takes approximately one hour.

If a student-led campus tour is unavailable on the day you hope to visit, or if you'd prefer to explore campus at your own pace, we suggest a self-guided tour.
