EXPERIENCE WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A WILDCAT

There's no better way to get to know Villanova than to explore our campus yourself. The Office of Undergraduate Admission welcomes prospective students and their families to experience and learn about the distinct benefits of a Villanova education. Take a tour, meet our students and explore the Nova Nation!

CAMPUS TOURS

Student-led campus walking tours are offered most Mondays through Thursdays this summer to pre-registered guests only. You will have the chance to see our beautiful campus in-person and have your questions answered by a current student! The walking tour typically takes approximately one hour.

Please note that tours will remain primarily outdoors and residence halls will not be part of the tour. You can visit the Office for Residence Life for descriptions and photographs of all of our residence halls.

If a student-led campus tour is unavailable on the day you hope to visit, or if you'd prefer to explore campus at your own pace, we suggest a self-guided tour.

All visitors to campus must pre-register using one of the links below for contact tracing purposes.

GROUP VISITS

Villanova offers group visit opportunities to high schools and community-based organizations who cater to college-bound students. For the safety of our campus community and visitors, we are not offering in-person Group Visits this summer. Please check back in August for updates regarding welcoming groups to campus for the Fall 2021 semester.

ENGINEERING INFORMATION SESSIONS

The College of Engineering welcomes all prospective first-time undergraduate students to join for an on-campus information session to learn more about the College and its programs.

FALL PREVIEW DAYS

VISIT US FROM HOME

Visit Villanova from your laptop, phone or tablet! Our Virtual Visit will get you acquainted with buildings and landmarks on our 260-acre campus, and our downloadable Campus Guide will fill you in on facts, figures and behind-the-scenes scoop on our favorite Villanova spaces! 

AN IMPORTANT NOTE

Villanova does not conduct interviews as part of our admission process, nor do we track demonstrated interest. If you are unable to visit campus (or attend one of our online sessions) prior to applying, it will have zero bearing on your application or admission decision.
