Student Orientation

Resident Students



Our Manresa New Student Orientation program is Thursday, August 15 thru Sunday, August 18, 2024. The First Year Move-In process takes place on Wednesday, August 14 and Thursday, August 15, 2024. During our move-in, Move Crew helps 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!

In order to organize the move-in process, you will register for your arrival time via our Housing Self Service website on July 9th. More information regarding the times of move in and the registration process will be available soon.

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. 

For more information about our move-in process, check out our Before You Arrive page and When You Arrive page.

Recently, we held a Zoom information session to answer any parent or student questions regarding move-in. Access the recording of our recent zoom information session on move-in questions.

Contact Manresa through email at or call (513) 745-3662. Our office will be happy to answer any questions you may have.


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.
