Friends of Villanova Program


Health and safety measures are being implemented in the University’s athletics facilities to both limit and spread-out usage, and increase the scope and frequency of cleaning. Unfortunately, it is necessary to temporarily suspend the Friends of Villanova program. The University will monitor conditions and consult government guidelines as it considers when to resume access to recreational athletics facilities and fitness centers for the Friends of Villanova.

Friends of Villanova memberships that would have expired between March 2020 and March 2021 will be extended to have an expiration date of December 31, 2021. More details will be communicated once a plan and timeline for reinstating the Friends of Villanova program have been established.



FOV Program Requirements:

To be considered Friends of Villanova you must be:

- 18 years of age or older

- Current resident of Radnor Township

If you meet this criteria, you can bring proof of address to the Wildcard Office located in Dougherty Hall and pay a $25 annual fee to secure your membership. 


Davis Center hours of access for FOV:

- Monday-Thursday, 7-11am and 8pm-midnight

- Fridays, 7-11am

- Saturdays, 10am-6pm

- Sundays, 10am-midnight

*No restrictions during holiday breaks or finals week. 

*FOV access to the Davis Fitness Center, Jake Nevin Fieldhouse, Villanova Stadium, and Pavilion Pool only. For the safety and security of our students, the University does not give Friends of Villanova access into residence halls and therefore Stanford, Farley, Arch and Cannon fitness center locations will not be available to Friends of Villanova.
