Gambling and Sports Wagering

Villanova University expects students to abide by federal and state laws prohibiting illegal gambling and by the University’s Sports Wagering Restrictions policy. Such activity includes, but is not limited to: betting on, wagering on or selling pools on any athletic event; possessing on one's person or premises any card, book or other device for registering bets; knowingly permitting the use of one's premises or one's telephone, computer or other electronic communications device for illegal gambling; knowingly receiving or delivering a letter, package or parcel related to illegal gambling; offering, soliciting or accepting a bribe to influence the outcome of an athletic event; and involvement in bookmaking or wagering pools with respect  to sporting events. Students involved in illegal gambling, particularly bookmaking, are subject to suspension or expulsion from the University, and students involved in activities prohibited or restricted by the University’s Sports Wagering Restrictions will be subject to disciplinary action as determined by the University.
