Many many thanks to this year's planning committee:
Below is the transportation information to Villanova’s campus. The retreat will take place in the Connelly Center (#9 on the Campus Map)
Villanova is doing major construction on campus and you will be unable to access the Connelly Center's lower level entrance by where we hold registration. Entrance to the building will be via the front, which faces Lancaster Ave. When facing the building, the main entrance on your left is to the upper level, lobby area, and the entrance on your right (head down a flight of stairs) will take you to the lower level by the Cinema (auditorium). Registration will be on the lower level as in previous years - outside the Villanova room where the poster sessions take place.
Please click on the following link to access directions and a map to Villanova’s campus
Attendees are to park in the Main Lot (the one on Lancaster Ave, enter off S. Ithan Ave) and use the Guest Parking permit for access. Parking permit is available to print here.
Take SEPTA’s Regional Rail Paoli/Thorndale Line to Villanova Station – directly on campus.
