Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Online Course for Students  
At Villanova, we hold sacred a community that is inclusive and just. We seek to foster an environment that embraces diversity, strives to be equitable and grants an opportunity for all students to experience belongingness. Because of these beliefs, we ask every incoming student to pause and reflect on their own identities, knowledge and possible biases they might have through an online DEI course. Through this course, students will discover ways they might participate in nurturing a positive, life-giving environment supportive of all students and all identities.    

Students are expected to take this course prior to their arrival to campus for New Student Orientation. For more information and to log in, please visit our website.  

Housing Assignments: Now Live  

Incoming first-year residential student housing assignments are now available! Please visit to view your assignment for the upcoming 2022-23 academic year.
