Parkville MOVE-IN DAY

As a Park Pirate, you enter into a tradition founded upon faith in yourself and willingness to labor with integrity and vigor. We welcome you into that tradition and will be with you along your journey! Move-in Day instructions will be emailed. Contact the Office of Residence Life with any questions.


New normal? No worries! The world, as we know it might be embarking upon uncharted territory, but Park University is prepared to navigate. Our Office of Student Life is hosting a New Student Orientation (NSO) that will prepare new students for a year of success.  NSO is mandatory for all new students to Park University and is inclusive of transfer students and first-time freshmen.

Join us for NSO on Saturday, August 12, 2023, at 9 a.m.

Are you worried about meeting new people on The Hill? Rest assured, so is everyone else (even if they won’t admit it). Attending NSO is a great chance to get to know other students, bond over awkward icebreakers, and learn about your new home together. You may not become BFFs, but you’ll leave knowing a few friendly faces are waiting for you when classes begin. See you then!
