Visit Villanova

Visit us virtually

Villanova University's campus is closed to visitors at this time. As we plan for a safe reopening this fall, we are developing plans with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and our county health department. Click here to view an updated list of Undergraduate Admission COVID FAQs.

We hope to resume in-person visits and campus tours at some point during the fall semester. As that determination is made, more information will be shared on this page. We encourage all prospective undergraduate and transfer applicants to join our mailing list to receive updates. Until we are able to welcome you to campus, we hope you'll join us online!

Villanova Virtual Visit

Join us for a live, one-hour online event to learn more about Villanova University! The session will be broken into two parts. First, one of our Admission staff members will present on the University and our five promises to students - academic excellence, personal attention, strong community, service to others and a foundation for lifelong success - along with details on the undergraduate admission process. Immediately following, current students will take you on an interactive virtual tour of campus and share with you exactly what it is like to be a Villanovan. There will be time for Q&A with all the speakers.

Just A Note...

Villanova does not conduct interviews as part of our admission process, nor do we track demonstrated interest. Once we are able to host visitors again, prospective and admitted students are encouraged to visit us on a weekday when campus is most active and vibrant. If you are unable to visit campus prior to applying (or attend one of our online sessions), it will have zero bearing on your application or admission decision.
