Division of Student Life

Welcome to Student Life at Villanova!

The Mission of the Division of Student Life at Villanova University is to provide programs, activities and services that advance the development of students on all levels—intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, culturally, socially, and physically—within a learning community committed to Catholic values and the spirit of St. Augustine

"You have made us for yourself, Oh Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you."   –St. Augustine


As a Wildcat, you'll have opportunities and access to activities, events and people to help you discover new and exciting horizons.

New students will experience their first days as a Wildcat during orientation and continue the adventure with our Office of 1st and 2nd Year Intiatives.

Villanova Parents, stay informed, get involved and find answers to your questions!

At Villanova, we seek to empower our students to discover the resources, information and people to support them throughout their Wildcat experience. Self care includes taking advantage of the many resources Villanova offers.

Find your home away from home at Villanova. Live like a Wildcat and be a part of our vibrant community!

Villanova promotes healthy living - whether it be the services provided by the Villanova Counseling Center, the Student Health Center 24-7, programs by the Office of Health Promotion, exercise at The Davis Center or one of our other facilities on campus, and programs by Campus Ministry. The Villanova Community values a healthy mind, body and spirit.

Each of our students has a unique character and identity.  The array of diverse student groups and activities found at Villanova provides varied opportunities for student engagement and personal growth. By getting involved, students have the opportunity to learn, grow, and serve others.
