The Lancaster Avenue Housing project will connect Villanova's campus core with the school's South Campus, currently separated by a major thoroughfare and a light rail line. The new development will provide 1,135 new student beds in a variety of suite configurations in six interlinked Collegiate Gothic buildings, with shared circulation and amenities and a series of quadrangles linked by arched passageways. Ground-level retail and a new fitness center along Lancaster Avenue will buffer the student residences from the busy avenue. A new five-level parking garage east of the residence halls will replace the large surface parking lots that currently occupy the site.
