Welcome Week

Kickoff the new school year with welcome week!

Welcome Week at Creighton

Welcome Week is our official kick-off to the new school year. This student-run, student-focused program begins with move-in an activities for freshmen and families during the weekend, then provides a week of engaging activities for students alongside the first classes of the year!

Move-in 2019 is set for August 16-17, 2019


A full schedule, detailed event descriptions and many more resources will be available soon through the Guidebook. You can access the Guidebook on a computer, or download the mobile app (iOS) (Android).

When do I move in?

Check your Creighton email!

You will receive an email from Admissions in May and July informing you of your move in time.

How much does Welcome Week cost?

The required events of Welcome Week are free!

We offer some optional excursions to see Omaha and those range from $5-$10 per excursion. You can sign up for these with your Welcome Week Leader and on the Guidebook App.

How long should family members stay after move-in?

Whatever your schedule allows.

We have sessions welcoming families to Creighton (that are different than Summer Preview) including a welcome mass, picnic, and welcome to the university on Saturday after move-in. If possible, we recommend families stay until Sunday morning. Students have sessions beginning at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

What if I didn’t go to Summer Preview, what do I do?

Don’t worry, you aren’t alone!

Make sure you get your Student ID and, if necessary, your parking pass this weekend before courses begin on Wednesday. Ask your Welcome Week leader how to do this when you get here on Saturday!

When are families welcome back to campus to visit?

Families are always welcome on campus. Family Weekend is a great time to come back and visit. 

I have more questions, who can I contact?

Please feel free to email Welcome Week at WelcomeWeek [at] Creighton [dot] edu or give us a call at 402.280.1715.
