Intern Housing Program

Per the University's April 17, 2020 COVID-19 Update, all on-campus camps and conferences for Summer 2020 are canceled. This includes the Intern Housing Program.

We are truly sorry about the far-reaching consequences of the current pandemic, and we agree with Fr. Peter when he writes that "It was my hope that we would be able to allow these programs to go forward, but given the continued uncertainty regarding the official end of the stay-at-home order and the recent announcement that all Pennsylvania K-12 schools would remain closed for the remainder of the academic year, we have decided to cancel all of the scheduled on-campus conferences and camps this summer." 

We wish you all the best and look forward to welcoming you back to Villanova in Summer 2021!


In 2021, the Summer Intern Housing Program at Villanova University will be scheduled to run from Sunday, May 30 until Friday, August 6, 2021, for up to 10 weeks of available housing.
