Villanova station is a SEPTA rapid transit station near the campus of Villanova University in Radnor Township, Pennsylvania. It serves the Norristown High Speed Line (Route 100). Local, Hughes Park Express, and Norristown Express trains stop at Villanova. The station lies 7.0 track miles from 69th Street Terminal. The station has off-street parking available.

Villanova station lies east of the former Strafford Spur, which was closed by the Philadelphia and Western Railroad in 1956. Today, the former right-of-way between Strafford and Radnor serves as the P&W Bicycle Trail.[1]
