Creighton’s urban campus encompasses more than 50 buildings, providing excellent facilities for the University’s academic, residential, spiritual, athletic and recreational activities. The beautifully landscaped, pedestrian-friendly campus has been regularly recognized by the Arbor Lodge Foundation as a Tree Campus USA University and has been named a “green college” by Princeton Review for a strong commitment to the environment and sustainability. In 2019, USA Today named Creighton’s St. John’s Church one of “51 amazing university and college buildings” in the U.S.
Recent facilities projects include $25 million in renovations to the Harper Center, which is home to the Heider College of Business and a number of programs and services; a new pharmacy skills lab; the relocation and renovation of the Clinical Assessment and Simulation Center; upgrades to several undergraduate science labs; an expanded dining facility; renovated occupational therapy and physical therapy labs; and the 200,000-square-foot School of Dentistry building that opened in 2018, featuring the latest in classroom, laboratory and clinical technology and accommodating larger class sizes and expanded community dental health outreach.
In 2021, Creighton announced plans for the CL Werner Center for Health Sciences Education, expected to open in fall 2023, which will be the new home of the School of Medicine and will include shared spaces for each of the University’s health sciences schools and colleges.
Creighton’s new health sciences campus in midtown Phoenix has a fall 2021 expected opening date, and will feature an 180,000-square-foot, seven-story building. The project is the centerpiece of a significant city redevelopment project.
