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.
