    Live on campus and immerse yourself in student life. Our class-year housing system is designed to provide an exceptional opportunity for students to build community with one another and become integrated into the greater university community. Our Housing and Auxiliary Services team works to create excellent living environments, while the Department of Residential Life invites students to ask intentional questions about themselves and their identities, their relationship to others, and how they can become leaders in a global society.


    All full-time, unmarried undergraduate students from outside the Omaha area are required to live in the residence halls their first two years at Creighton. If you’re from Omaha, we strongly recommend you live on-campus so that you can benefit from all that living at Creighton has to offer.
