VPS Resident Life

    Boarding at Villanova has a rich and vibrant history stretching back for almost a century.  Villanova’s Catholic Augustinian mission sets us apart from many boarding programs with our emphasis on the core values of Unity, Truth, and Love.

    Villanova guides resident students on how to think critically and build good moral character. As a part of the Villanova family, they will enjoy the special and unique moments in the dormitories; live with students from over a dozen countries around the world; travel together to different places in Southern California; support one another as peers, classmates, and teammates; learn how to be self-advocates; help in the community through service projects; resolve conflicts as they may arise; and grow together in the spirit of unity, truth, and love.  

    Our six full-time resident program staff are dedicated to each Villanova student's experience and growth. Our separate dorms for boys and girls are housed in heritage buildings on our beautiful 130-acre campus.

    The student's experience is always the priority. For example, the evening study hall is always staffed with experienced teachers and tutors; the gym, track, and pool are available for resident student use; quality meals are prepared by excellent chefs; weekend programming is geared to provide many opportunities for students to explore Central and Southern California; and hanging out around the beautiful Ojai Valley provides memorable, fun, and safe off-campus getaways.   We welcome you to the Villanova family!
