We’re renovating! The Falvey Hall Reading Room is being transformed into a new signature space with 24/7 ADA access and state of the art technology enhancements.  Villanova students will love the abundance of  power outlets, easy WiFi access and the relaxing wing-back chairs!

As part of the renovation of the Reading Room, new insulated and ultraviolet-filtering windows are being installed. All original windows have already been removed and, as of Aug. 26, all of the new windows have been installed and the last one is receiving its finishing touches. The ultraviolet filtering will help protect the recently conserved Pietro da Cortona painting, “The Triumph of David.”
