FAST FACTS

Since Villanova University's founding in 1842, we have been inspired by the values of truth, unity and love, creating a uniquely Villanova environment, in which students learn to think critically, act compassionately and succeed while serving others.

Whether undergraduate or graduate, faculty or staff, each community member brings with them a wealth of experiences that enrich our University and shift our perspectives. Here, students follow in the rich intellectual and moral tradition that joins them together long after graduation.
