The Jake Nevin Field House (originally known as the Villanova Field House) is an arena located at Villanova University in Villanova, Pennsylvania. The arena, built in 1932, is the former home of the Villanova basketball program prior to the construction of The Pavilion in 1986. It currently houses the women's volleyball team, as well as the intramural sports program and the main athletic offices for the school.

The building, originally known as the Villanova Field House, was renamed in 1985 in honor of Jake Nevin, longtime Villanova athletic trainer. It has permanent seating for 1,500 in the sideline balconies of the building, and can accommodate more with temporary seating on the floor of the arena.

With The Pavilion closing for renovations during the 2017–18 season (after which the venue will be renamed Finneran Pavilion), the Villanova women's basketball team will play its entire home schedule that season at the Field House.[1]
