@TrolleyHopper congrats to your Son on acceptance to Nova! I hope he loves it!
I doubt that the administration would have any issues with him parking his car if it is off campus, but you should check with someone in the Admissions or other department at Nova.
I wouldn’t consider any dorm necessarily better than other from the perspective of partying. Partying on campus is not allowed, especially to underage students. If there ends up being a party or if a room is being too loud, the RA will come to the room and tell them to be quiet. If your son is bothered by a noise in a room near him, he can just text his RA and have him go tell them to be quiet. You can’t pick your dorm anyway, it is all random (or if you are in a Learning Community you will be in a specific dorm with the rest of your group members).
There are 3 main dining halls, one on each “campus.” The dining hall for freshman on South Campus is pretty good. The regular dining hall for students on Main Campus isn’t bad, but I prefer some of the other places to eat. My favorite is Cafe Nova which has made-to-order food rather than a buffet style & all you can eat at the normal dining halls.
The neighborhoods/towns around Villanova are very safe, it is only areas in Philadelphia that you should avoid, but I don’t know what specific areas that would be as I do not really go to Philadelphia.
I’m not sure about Eagles tickets, but it is definitely possible for parents to get men’s basketball tickets, especially during the regular season. There is a student lottery system for each game and most people will be able to get tickets, especially since the Pavilion is being newly renovated and expanded (this year the home games were played at the Wells Fargo Center in Philly). Many people will enter the lottery just to get tickets and sell them for around $15, so you can get those, or you can just buy the tickets normally online.
Some big campus social events are Special Olympics, NovaDance, Acapella Concerts, MLK Day of Service, and a lot of smaller events like special speakers, etc.
Intramural sports are pretty popular just for students to have fun and stay active, especially since Villanova offers a wide range of sports. Here is the list of all intramurals offered (click Fall Sports and/or Spring Sports on the left): https://www1.villanova.edu/villanova/recreation/intramurals.html
