New Students

The residence halls open for new students and transfers at 9 a.m. on September 17th, 2020. After move-in, new students will attend Welcome Week activities to introduce them to classmates, staff, faculty, the campus and the city.

All new students will receive additional information about orientation in late summer, but if you still have questions see our Frequently Asked Questions or contact Housing at

Transfer students are encouraged to attend Welcome Week activities. The move in date for transfer students is September 17th.

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

The move in date for continuing students is September 20th.
