RESOURCES AND SERVICES
Creating and maintaining a thriving community is a shared responsibility. Learn more about how each of these resources and services below are working to create an environment in which all students, faculty and staff can thrive.
OVERALL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
The Office of Health Promotion provides evidence-based health resources, facilitates opportunities for students to build skills to make healthy lifestyle choices, and instills a sense of personal responsibility for individual health and its impact on the health of the community.
The Counseling Center is available to help you with personal and emotional concerns—no topic is too small or too large. With a variety of services and resources, the Counseling Center helps students function optimally with regard to emotional, academic, social and psychological issues.
The Student Life Mental Health and Well-Being Committee is committed to supporting and improving individual and community well-being from an inclusive lens to serve the diverse needs of our community through mental health awareness, promoting resources and services, and reducing stigma.
The UNITAS group, Every Mind Matters, was formed to increase mental health awareness and advocacy within the athletic department. Student-athletes work alongside faculty and staff to create initiatives and resources for the athletics community to better understand and support their mental health.
The CARE Committee brings together administrators from Student Life, Public Safety, the Counseling Center, and Academic Affairs to offer an informed and caring response to students of concern. While most students’ needs are addressed through the routine functioning of the University, some students may require further attention. CARE discusses exceptional cases involving undergraduate and graduate students presenting concerns that are best addressed by the combined attention of these University offices.
The Student Health Center takes pride in providing excellent health care to Villanova undergraduate and graduate students. Students can expect individualized attention and timely service, whether they are suffering from a cold, the flu, allergies, or something more serious.
The Office of Intramurals and Recreation is committed to providing the Villanova community with a wide variety of recreational services and programs that promote lifelong health and fitness. The Recreation Office aims to enhance the Villanova experience by fostering an environment that encourages diverse groups of students to unite for a common purpose.
The Office of Student Involvement offers 250+ opportunities to enhance your college experience outside the classroom. With recreation, service opportunities, cultural events and leadership programs, you can learn skills, build relationships and enrich your campus experience.
Fraternities and sororities have been active members of the Villanova community for more than 100 years, with missions that seek to evoke leadership qualities in members through engagement in academic, service, philanthropic and social initiatives.
The Office of Intercultural Affairs (OIA) creates and supports programming that fosters and sustains a community of respect and inclusion for Villanovans with a special focus on underrepresented students. OIA supports Villanova's VU Pride, OASIS and Safe Zone programs for LGBTQIA+ students, faculty, staff and allies, and the Association for Change and Transformation, among others.
The goal of the Office for Residence Life is to make Villanova your home away from home. Living in community supports Villanovans as they develop and deepen relationships, pursue their passions, prepare for life beyond the University and become leaders in a supportive and welcoming environment.
Campus Ministry provides spaces for students, individually and in community, to explore the intersection of personal beliefs, spirituality, justice and the world around them. In addition, Campus Ministers provide pastoral care and counsel, including helping students deal with value conflicts, grief, spiritual discernment, and many other issues connected with faith and life.
WELL-BEING RESOURCES FOR LAW STUDENTS
