We are working to develop a robust Orientation experience and will share details in the coming days and weeks. Check back soon for updated information and please note important dates regarding move-in and the fall academic calendar below.




Villanova will expand move-in to multiple days, reducing congestion and supporting physical distancing in residence halls.

First-year students will be assigned move-in appointment times on Aug. 11 or 12, based on the first letter of their last name. Additionally, optional drop-off of belongings, open to all residential students, will take place July 31-Aug. 9, 2020. Students will sign up for a day/time to move their belongings to campus.

*The University will continue to closely monitor campus safety conditions on a daily basis and will continue to follow the most updated health department guidance. Should health or safety concerns change, the University may need to shift plans in order to continue the delivery of services, including moving to a fully online format for all or part of the semester. Therefore, please note that all dates and plans remain tentative  Additionally, regardless of the learning environment or method of instruction, Fall 2020 tuition and fees would not change, as they are provided in exchange for accredited educational instruction, academic credit and certain non-academic services that Villanova will continue to deliver whether in person, remotely or in a hybrid format.
