Freshman Move In FAQ

When can I move in?

New Student Orientation will provide information on dates you can move in as a new student. You can find general information at their home page. For final information please refer to the information they will mail you in early August.

CAN I MOVE IN EARLY?

NO. We ask that you adhere to the dates provided in the materials you will receive. If you have questions or a special concern we can help with, please call the Housing Assignments Office.

ARE ALL HALLS AND APARTMENTS AIR-CONDITIONED?

Yes. 100% of our residence halls and apartment buildings are air-conditioned for your comfort.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?  HOW LONG ARE THE BEDS?

The beds are extra-long twin mattresses.  For more information on what to bring, visit our Life on Campus page.

CAN I HAVE A LOFT?

No.  All our residence hall rooms have loft-able furniture and when you arrive on campus they will already be lofted! The beds are easy to loft and unloft, therefore we do not allow homemade lofts or lofts by a third party.

WHAT APPLIANCES CAN I BRING TO CAMPUS?

Creighton permits microwave ovens, small refrigerators (less than 6 cubic feet), TVs, stereos, DVD players, gaming consoles, etc.  Anything with "open coils" that could cause a fire such as George Forman grills, hot plates, etc. should be left at home as they are prohibited.  For more on things to bring, please refer to our guide.

CAN I DECORATE MY ROOM?

Yes! This is your home, make it your own with pictures, posters, TVs, stereos, bedspreads, lamps etc.  Some roommates even have fun designing a unique decor for their room.  Have fun with it!

CAN I SMOKE IN MY ROOM?

No.  All of our residence halls and apartments are 100% smoke-free.

WHERE WILL I GET MY MAIL?

Students have a mailbox in their hall or apartment where they live.  Mailboxes are generally assigned within the first few days upon move-in.  If you have questions related directly to mail contact mail services at (402) 280-3002.

WHERE CAN I DO MY LAUNDRY?

All residence halls and apartments have a laundry room for students to use.  Creighton's laundry rooms take both coins and Student ID card for payment.
