Move-In Information

The Multicultural, Gender, & Women's Center is excited to have you participate in the 2013 Smooth Transitions Program scheduled for Monday, August 18 - Thursday, August 21, 2014. We will have programs and events scheduled until Manresa begins.

Resident Students

You will move into your room for the academic year on Monday, August 18, 2014 from 11:00pm - 1:30pm ONLY.

Because you will be moving into your assigned room for the academic year, here are a few things to consider:

  • Label all belongings with your name, residence hall and room number.

  • Pack all boxes securely and wrap breakable items. Please avoid over-packing boxes. This reduces the chance of injury for the Move Crew. Xavier University is not responsible for lost or broken items.

  • If you are driving with multiple vehicles, please stay together. Students should be in the first vehicle.

  • A driver needs to stay with the vehicle at all times. If possible, students should not be driving.

  • Be sure to have a full tank of gas before arriving. Anticipate some delays and consider bringing a snack or bottled water.

  • After move-in, students will have a meeting with their Hall Director and staff at 2:30pm in their respective buildings. We have a full schedule, please plan to be present at this very important meeting.

  • Students and families should report  to the Gallagher Student Center Theater at 2:30pm for the Parent Farewell and Mentor Connections.

  • Dress for the orientation program is casual. Additionally, if you take medicine or need assistance traveling around campus, please explain how we can assist you by emailing us at, or as your need arises.

Commuter Students

If you are not moving onto campus, then you should arrive on campus at the Gallagher Student Center, Theater, at 2:30pm on Monday, August 18, 2014.
