Welcome to the Connelly Center at Villanova University.

The Connelly Center is designed to serve the cultural, social, recreational, religious, and co-curricular needs of Villanova University students, faculty, staff, alumni, and university friends. The facility and the programs that take place in the Connelly Center are designed to enrich the lives of all who use this facility.
