NACURH promotes living on campus as an integral part of the college experience and strives to provide resources to help member schools create the ultimate residence hall environment and experience.
NACURH is the leading national organization advocating for the interests and welfare of residence hall students, while also providing opportunities for their personal growth and development. It is an organization of students committed to developing leadership, honoring diversity, recognizing achievement, as well as stimulating engagement and involvement among students who reside in college and university residence halls. Through regional and national programs and services, NACURH provides leadership opportunities for students, shares residence hall programming resources and best practices, and coordinates activities with appropriate professional associations and business partners.
Within NACURH there are 10 different regions. Creighton is part of the Midwest Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (MACURH). This organization is geared towards idea and program sharing between schools to create better and more exciting living environments for students.
