Resources for Phoenix Students.

Phoenix Students

No matter where you study, Creighton provides support to make sure your out-of-the-classroom experience sets you up for success. Whether you need to connect with staff in Omaha, or you need Phoenix-specific support, these resources are available to you.

Wellness

Wellness is the multidimensional awareness and practice of cura personalis, or “care for the individual person,” to achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle. 

Immunizations
Creighton has immunization requirements for all students registered for classes on campus to protect the health and well-being of our campus community. All students must have immunization requirements completed and uploaded to the BirdHouse health portal and records verified by the Student Health Education and Compliance Office prior to registering for classes. For instructions and a full list of immunization requirements, click here.

Insurance
Creighton requires that all full-time students (Undergraduate = 12 credits/semester; Graduate = 8 credits/semester) be covered by a comprehensive health insurance plan* for the entire academic year. New and returning students are auto-enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan. If you already have a comprehensive insurance plan, you must waive the coverage through the NEST. For more information, click here.

Creighton Health and Immunization Requirements Portfolio
The Creighton Health and Immunization Requirements Portfolio (CHIRP) is a personalized and comprehensive document that displays current immunization and clinical onboarding requirements for students. The document is accessible via the BirdHouse health portal

Counseling Services
Counseling services will soon be available to students in Phoenix. Please check back soon for more information.
 

Living

Where you live is important to your success. These resources are provided to help you find a great place to call home and make the most of your living experience.

Housing Finder
Looking for a place to live close to campus? We invite you to explore this off-campus housing listing, coordinated by our partner, Abodo. Please note this is intended only as a resource for our students and should not be regarded as legal advice. You should inspect all rental properties in person and read all contracts, leases, and other documents carefully before signing.

Good Neighbor Guidelines
As a Creighton student, you are expected to be a responsible and positive member of all of the community in which you live. Click here to learn more about how to be a good neighbor in your new home.
 

Community

You’re a part of the Phoenix community and a part of the Creighton community. As a member of both, you have certain responsibilities and privileges. As a University, Creighton provides support and resources to foster a community of care and respect.

Student Handbook and Policies
The Creighton University Student Handbook applies to all enrolled students. The handbook contains information that will assist you in understanding your student rights and responsibilities as a member of our academic learning community. Students must also abide by University policies and Student Life policies.

Community Expectations
In accordance with the Jesuit values that guide our institution, we encourage students to share their gifts, nurture their commitments to justice, and develop themselves academically, mentally, and spirituality. Choosing to join the Creighton community obligates you to act in a manner that is consistent with these standards of conduct.

Incident Reporting
If you are involved in or witness a discriminatory or wellbeing-threatening incident, the following resources are available to you:

  • Creighton University Violence Intervention and Prevention Center – If you or someone you care about has experienced an act of violence, you are not alone. The VIP Center serves both local and long-distance students, staff, and faculty by providing support and guidance. 
  • Creighton University Office of Equity and Inclusion – If you have experienced harassment, discrimination, sexual or relationship misconduct, the Office of Equity and Inclusion can help by providing confidential advocacy and resources.
  • City of Phoenix Family Advocacy Center – The City of Phoenix Family Advocacy Center (FAC) provides comprehensive services to primary and secondary victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, elder abuse and homicide in a safe, confidential and supportive environment.
  • Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network – RAINN is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE, online.rainn.org) in partnership with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country.
