Most residence halls have standard twin size mattresses measuring 36" by 76" by 7". Both standard size and extra-long twin sheets will fit the mattress.

Beginning the Fall of 2019 the Office for Residence Life will be working to standardize mattresses in all residence halls and apartment buildings to "extra long" length.  All rooms and apartments in our new buildings in The Commons will have "extra-long" mattresses.  Students assigned to buildings with "extra long" mattresses will be notified via email when housing assignments are confirmed during the last week of July.

For students assigned to buildings where "extra long" mattresses are not standard, Residence Life has a limited supply of "extra-long" mattresses measuring 36" by 80" by 7", which are available upon request and based on need.  Requests should be limited to those over 6' 2" in height.  These mattresses require extra-long twin-sized sheets. Students can request an extra-long mattress when they complete the housing application.

Residence Life continues to partner with Our Campus Market to offer students and families an easy way to shop for bedding, carpets and room accessories. Please visit to place an order directly with OCM. Bedding and accessories will be shipped to your home.  Carpets will be delivered to your room prior to your arrival.  


Laundry facilities are located in all residence halls, except St. Rita's Hall (residents of St. Rita's Hall have access to laundry in nearby Alumni and Corr Halls). Each load (wash and dry) costs $1.50.  Students use their Wildcard to pay for laundry - No need to bring quarters!  VLaundry allows students to view the current status of every laundry facility on campus, reserve specific machines, and find out when the machines in your building will be available.

Students also have the option of signing up for an off-site laundry program.  Villanova has partnered with Tide Cleaners to offer this service.


Villanova is proud to partner with Tide Cleaners for on-campus laundry services. Tide Cleaners is the official preferred vendor because they offer a gold standard cleaning solution and save students 80 hours of time each year. College can be stressful, and Tide Cleaners takes the chore of laundry off your plate so that you can commit time to more important things. Drop dirty clothes off at one of the lockers located on campus, and clothes will be washed, folded, and ready to wear two days later. In light of COVID-19, Tide is committed to a completely contactless laundry experience. Nothing is more important than ensuring your safety. If you have questions, please contact their Guest Care Team at 888-590-9274. To register for the Tide program -
