On-Campus Living

Creighton University offers on-campus housing for full-time, undergraduate matriculated students.  All unmarried, undergraduate students from outside the immediate Omaha area, as defined by the University, are required to live in University residence halls during their first two years at the University. Students from the Omaha area may live in the residence halls. Otherwise, during their first two years at the University, students from the Omaha area must live with a parent or guardian unless given permission by the Director for Housing & Auxiliary Services or their designee, to live elsewhere.

A request to be exempt from this residency requirement must be made electronically to the Director for Housing & Auxiliary Services via email at Living@creighton.edu, by July 15th for requests for the upcoming fall semester, and by December 1 for the upcoming spring semester. Only the Director for Housing & Auxiliary Services or their designee will be able to permit these exemptions. A resident must be a full-time, matriculated student at the University. If space allows, the University may permit housing of part-time, graduate, and professional students in University residence halls.

The University operates nine residence halls. Deglman, Kiewit, and Gallagher Halls are traditional-style freshman residence halls with common bathroom facilities. Rooms are double occupancy. Space in Swanson Hall is available to freshman students as well. Swanson is a suite-style hall with four freshman or four sophomore students per suite. McGloin Hall is also a suite-style hall with four sophomore students per suite. Kenefick Hall is an apartment-style hall for sophomores with double-occupancy efficiency and one-bedroom apartments.  Heider Hall is an apartment-style residence with double and quad-occupancy efficiency, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments open to sophomore undergraduates. Davis Square and Opus Hall, apartment complexes for junior and senior-level students, house students in two, three, or four-bedroom apartments. A small number of sophomore may reside in Davis Square. Residents of Davis Square and Opus Hall sign a 12-month lease. All other students contract for the full academic year, beginning in August and continuing until the end of exams the following May.

The residence hall agreement is for room and board. All freshman and sophomore residents are required to have a meal plan. Residents living in Deglman, Gallagher, Kiewit, Swanson, and McGloin must purchase either the All Access, 15, 12, or 9 meal plan. Sophomore residents of Kenefick Hall, Heider Hall and Davis Square must purchase the All Access, 15, 12, 9 or Flex 100 meal plan option. Exemptions (for example, for religious or medical reasons) to meal plan requirements may be requested electronically to the Director for Housing & Auxiliary Services or their designee, via email at Living@creighton.edu. Generally, the University Dining Services is able to meet most dietary needs. Board plans are also available to off campus and commuting students.

Meals are served in the Brandeis and Harper dining halls located adjacent to the campus residence halls. More information about dining opportunities is available from Sodexo at https://creighton.sodexomyway.com.
