Fitness in The Commons

Grand Opening: Monday August 26th

Effective fall of 2019, all Group Fitness classes are being relocated from the Davis Center to our new fitness studios located in Canon Hall of The Commons. Class schedule will be available mid-August. Additionally, Arch Hall will become home to a new functional training facility. 

Who Has Access

All current students, faculty, and staff are welcome to use our new space! Users need Wildcard to enter the facilities.

*For the safety and security of our students, the University does not give Friends of Villanova access into residence halls and therefore these fitness locations will not be available to Friends of Villanova.

Where We're Located

Canon Hall Group Fitness Studios: Located on the first floor of Cannon Hall

Arch Hall Fitness Center: Located on the first floor of Arch Hall

Canon and Arch Hall are both located on Lancaster Ave, close to the pedestrian bridge.
