Student Orientation

Resident Students

With the newest Fall 2021 semester updates, classes will begin on Monday, August 16. This will allow for all students to depart for Thanksgiving and complete finals remotely. 

First year Move-in Wednesday, August 11 & Thursday, august 12, 2021!


Our Manresa orientation program for the Class of 2025 will begin on Thursday, August 12 and end on Sunday, August 15. 

Our First Year Move-In process will take place on Wednesday, August 11 and Thursday, August 12. During our First Year Move-In, Move Crew will help you move your belongings up to your room. Ready with carts and Xavier spirit we can't wait to help you through the move-in process!

Access to scheduling arrival times will begin on Tuesday, July 6 via the Housing Self-Service portal. Please plan to register for your arrival time by Friday, July 30 to ensure we have an appropriate amount of time to prepare for your arrival! 

  • Wednesday, August 11 from 9:00am-3:00pm
  • Thursday, August 12 8:00am-1:00pm 

Arrival times will be scheduled in 30 minute time slots and serve as your window of time to "get in line". While there may be a wait in the lines please rest assured that we are working hard to get you moved-in as fast as possible.

You will be able to find driving directions specific to your residence hall on the Driving Directions page. It is essential that you follow the specific driving directions to your residence hall, not your GPS, which will not take you to the correct location to get in your line. 

EARLY ARRIVALS: If you are participating in Smooth Transitions, International Orientation, X-Path program, are an NCAA Athlete, or Rad Tech student, you are eligible for an early arrival time.  You will receive more information directly from your program coordinator or coach.  You will not need to sign-up for a move-in arrival time.
