You can find a Checklist of items that need to be submitted to Villanova before the fall semester in myNova. Helpful Hint: Print the Checklist before you begin!
Siblings of new students are welcome to attend New Student Orientation programs on Opening Day as long as they accompany parents. We ask that siblings do not attend any Opening Day programs that are solely for new students, such as when new students meet with their Orientation Counselors and Academic Deans.
New students are expected to attend the Orientation program. There is no need to register in advance.
The New Student Orientation office will mail the following booklets/newsletters to all new students: the Villanova 101 emails, distributed weekly all summer, which has a basic overview of the 4-day Orientation program, as well as information from Residence Life, Dining Services, the Wildcard Office, Learning Communities, and general University information, and the August Brochure, with detailed information about Orientation, including Orientation Group Numbers and Designated Reporting Areas (where new students will meet with their Orientation Counselors). Orientation Group Numbers and Designated Reporting Areas can also be found in myNova in early August. If you do not receive the above mentioned publications, please contact the Orientation Office.
New students will be able to access their residence hall and roommate information in myNova in late July. Questions about housing assignments should be directed to the Office of Residence Life - (610) 519-4154/4150.
