Check-in Central is a one-stop check-in process for Residents and Commuters. During the check-in process, student’s will receive check-in materials for the halls, pick up KNIGHT LIFE on-campus orientation packet, pick up your pre-registered parking pass, make their student ID, if needed, and also have an opportunity to speak with the Bursar and Financial Aid offices. It is our goal to provide these essential services in one location to assist students and parents in their transition to Bellarmine. Check-in Central is the official student and parent welcome to Bellarmine University. We want to begin the semester by building a strong and positive community that enhances every student’s experience at BU.
