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.


Welcome home Pirates! As you are embarking upon uncharted territory, Park University is prepared to help you navigate these waters. 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 10, 2024, at 9 a.m.

Check in is on the Chapel Lawn from 8:15-9:00 a.m. and will include a mini-resource fair.
