The new John and Joan Mullen Center for the Performing Arts is considered one of Villanova's most transformational projects and provides a hub for creativity for the university's arts community.  The new center includes state-of-the-art theatrical lighting and modern technology as well as new dance and art studios.

The center's two main performance spaces are a 400-seat Proscenium style theatre and a 200 seat courtyard theatre. In addition, there is a large lobby and atrium featuring a cafe and catering kitchen for students, classroom and rehearsal spaces, dance studios, art studios, and a scenery shop.  One of the larger rehearsal spaces also serves as a performance lab for small audiences.
