Creighton’s campus is closed to all nonapproved students, faculty, staff and visitors. A phased approach is being developed to gradually and safely bring more faculty and staff back to campus for positions critical to academic mission.
Creighton’s residence halls are closed to all visitors and students who have not been approved to remain in on-campus housing. Students’ belongings will remain in their rooms or will be moved to a safe storage area on campus. Check-out appointments are available on a case-by case basis.
Students will be contacted to coordinate check-out opportunities, as well as prior to any change to the state of their belongings. Please visit the Bluejay Pack and Move page and review recent email updates from living [at] creighton [dot] edu for information about your available check-out options.
The University will offer a room-and-board credit to residential students who have vacated the residence halls. Click here for more information.

In early May, in consultation with the Archdiocese of Omaha and Creighton University’s Critical Incident Response Team, St. John’s Church made a plan for gradual reopening.
St. John’s has begun by inviting only those awaiting sacraments of initiation. The first Mass was held at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, May 10. It was restricted to 10 people, by invitation only.
Masses on Sundays have since continued to be by invitation only, specifically for those awaiting sacraments of initiation and their families.
All 10:30 a.m. Sunday Masses are livestreamed, as are daily noon Masses offered Monday through Saturday. Confession is by appointment only.
Continuing to monitor public health data and in consultation with the University, St. John’s will assess next steps for opening more broadly to public participation. At that time, staff and parishioners will be instructed in safety regulations provided by the archdiocese, and in the practice of social distancing. Facilities will provide cleaning and disinfecting services.
