    Where Should I Park?

    During Move-In week, the mall near the Bellarmine Turnaround (12th Ave. and Columbia St.) is open to new students and families to unload. Move-in times are often scheduled and staggered in order to provide a smooth and convenient move-in procedure.

    Campion residents can park temporarily near the Murphy Apartments. Please avoid Campion's Jefferson address on Move-in Day.

    Xavier residents will find temporary parking around Xavier Hall for Move-in.

    Returning Students

    Returning students may begin moving in at 9am on September 20th, 2015.
