I don't live on campus, so I wouldn't know what it's like to live in a dorm. But I say do whatever makes you feel more comfortable. Chances are, your loved ones are barely getting adjusted too. Again, if you feel more comfortable phoning home once a day, go for it.
At first, you'll probably want to call home more often. It is best to always keep in touch with family, but don't feel as if you need to talk to them nonstop. You need to learn to become independent in that you don't always need your parents by your side.
