Group activities with food service, not in a dining hall, are provided through University Catering (a division of Villanova Dining Services) which has bountiful options for the most exacting specifications. Refreshment breaks, served or buffet meals, picnic arrangements, boxed meals, receptions and special dinner banquets can all be provided anywhere on campus according to group size and funds.
Villanova University does have a license to serve alcoholic beverages according to Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board mandates. The charges for served beer, wine and cocktails are included in the whole-event pricing based on a fee for bartending, bar set-ups, and group alcohol consumption. The University cannot sell alcohol by-the-drink, nor for profit, at a function. This condition can translate into significant savings for planners given the impact of the cost of bar service on the budget for an event. See Catering Menu for the alcohol policy.
A professional event planner will assist meeting planners with all of the details of each catered function. Whatever your needs, Villanova can offer basic to elegant catering services with a wide variety of campus locations, menu choices, dining table and room décor.
