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! Look for more information about Residence Hall Move In Day 2021.  Additional move-in day instructions will be emailed. Contact the Office of Residence Life with any questions.


RSVP for your new student orientation.

New normal? No worries! The world, as we know it might be embarking upon uncharted territory, but Park University is prepared to navigate. Our Student Leadership and Engagement Office 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.

For newly enrolled Parkville undergraduate students, get started Monday, August 9, with an online introduction covering key areas.

On-campus NSO will be held in 3 ships based on LE100 enrollment and transfer status to ensure small group sizes and unique engagement opportunities.

  • Ship Mackay: Friday, August 13 at 10 am
  • Ship Thompson: Saturday, August 14 at 9 am
  • Ship Breckon: Saturday, August 14 at 1 pm
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!
