Parking permits will be needed to park on campus lots. Please checkmark appropriate box on Registration Form. A map of the campus and your parking permit will be sent with the acknowledgement of your registration. (Parking permits will also be available at the Registration Desk, if necessary.)
Housing is available this year in the new Bishop Fenwick Place on campus. The building is set up with air-conditioned suites which include a common living area and 3 to 4 bedrooms sharing two bathrooms. Most accommodations are double occupancy with very few single rooms available. Because of the new housing facility, a small refrigerator and microwave are not in each suite. However, there are small microwaves and some small refrigerators in nearby lounges, and one common large refrigerator down the hall.
Classrooms will be in Hailstone Hall across the green space from Bishop Fenwick Place. All locations are within walking distance and golf carts will be available again this year for shuttling those in need of assistance.
** REGISTRATION REGULATIONS **
Due to Xavier University's policy, we must require a $100.00 non-refundable deposit for each person registering for housing. (A few scholarships for a portion of the $100 fee are available.) If you wish to use the Xavier Housing facility, you need to make your plans early and send in your registration by July 5 with the required deposit. There are hotels and motels nearby, such as the Quality Inn and Comfort Inn & Suites as alternative housing.
Check In Options
Check in at the Registration Desk in Hailstone Hall. However, on Friday, July 26th and Sunday, July 28th, for your convenience, there is an additional Registration Desk in the Fenwick Building where you can get room assignments, keys, etc.
Because we are to be housed in a different building this year, Bishop Fenwick Place, there is no small refrigerator or microwave in the suites. Nearby lounges have small microwaves and there is one common refrigerator. The Hoff Dining Commons is a state-of-the-art facility which will offer pre-ordered meals. They have a variety of dishes to suit many different appetites and are located in the same building as the housing. Therefore, it may be to your advantage to order meals in the new dining facility.
Beginning on Saturday, July 27 through Saturday, Aug 03, meals will be available for your selection. The breakfast being offered is a continental breakfast at $6.00 per person. Lunch at $7.50 will include a great selection of entrees, soups, sandwiches, a salad bar, desserts, and more. Dinner ($9.00) will only be available on two days — Sunday and Monday as indicated since we must meet a minimum of 100. Because breakfast will be available in the Dining Hall (if you pre-order it), there will be no breakfast items available in the dorm as we have offered in the past.
Checkmark all the appropriate areas on the Registration Form. Make checks for meals payable to Mary Handermann and mail with your Registration Form to: Presentation Ministries, 5442 Boutique Ct., Cincinnati, OH 45238. All meals must be ordered and paid in advance by July 5 — no refunds will be made after that date. Swipe cards will be used for meals and only pre-ordered meals will be available. Your can pick up your card at the Registration Desk upon arrival.
Other possibilities for meals are restaurants on nearby Montgomery Road or a take-out delivery option. A campus food court in the Gallagher Student Center has a Blue Gibbon (Chinese), Andy’s Mediterranean, Subway and Coffee Emporium. However, the summer hours are very limited, especially on weekends. Currita Burrito is located in Bishop Fenwick Place.
