Off-campus living can be an exciting and challenging transition. We're here to provide resources and support for students living off-campus as well as for our neighbors and community members.


We're Here to Help

Villanova fosters a community of mutual love and respect that extends beyond the physical bounds of our campus borders. We provide information about local amenities and services, educate students on pertinent university policies, local ordinances and laws, and encourage the community to create a positive impact for themselves and others.
