Take SEPTA’s Regional Rail Line, R5 (Paoli local) to Villanova Station – directly on campus.
Directions to Connelly Center after exiting the train:
The Connelly Center is about a 5 minute walk from the train. When exiting the train you’ll need to go to the other side of the tracks via the pedestrian tunnel at the station. You will then see a building straight ahead, Mendel Hall #15, which has an archway. Walk under the archway, then turn left onto the first road, proceed to the first road on the right and turn right. Follow that road which bends around to the left and brings you to pavement. Dead ahead is a large, black and white (3-disc) sculpture, "the oreo". The entrance to the upper level of the Connelly Center is to the left of the oreo. Registration will be downstairs on the lower level of the Connelly Center.
