Kick off the new school year with welcome week!
Welcome Week is our official kick-off to the new school year. The program begins with move-in and provides a week of engaging activities for students alongside the first classes of the year!
Freshman Move-In 2020
Your health and safety are our top priorities. This year’s move-in process has been modified to adhere to social distancing recommendations and protect the health of the Creighton community.
The staggered move-in process will begin August 12 and will run through August 15. Classes will begin August 17. Move-in dates and times were sent to freshman students’ Creighton email accounts on July 1.
When you arrive to campus, you’ll have two hours to park and unload your items at the residence hall entrance. (Related: What to bring to campus). Following those two hours, families are welcome to park in a University lot and return to the residence hall to continue unpacking. Items may be shipped to Creighton prior to your arrival to make the move-in process easier. The mail rooms will be open during move-in to collect your packages when you arrive. All boxes should include the student’s assigned residence hall name to ensure it is sent to the correct location.
While limited programming for families will occur each day, we kindly ask that family members leave campus following their students’ move-in date. Once students are moved in, each residence hall will be accessible only to students assigned to that hall – no guests or visitors will be allowed – for at least the first 30 days of the academic semester. We recognize that move-in can be an emotional part of the transition for students and families. To effectively adhere to social distancing practices and protect the campus community, however, we ask families to limit the number of people included in the move-in process to three additional family members.
Welcome Week programming will commence in the days following move-in, where students will engage in activities and receive resources to prepare for classes and campus life – and an incredible Creighton experience!
