Graves Hall: New First-Year Residence

The Future of Living at Creighton

In August of 2023, approximately 400 first-year students will move into a brand-new residence hall on 23rd Street, south of Burt Street.

Graves Hall will feature rooms in the suite-style concept, with two adjoining double-occupancy bedrooms connected by a shared bathroom. Each floor will have shared community kitchenettes and dedicated spaces for student development programs. The hall will also feature an elevated outdoor courtyard for social gatherings and events.

“The building represents a philosophical shift to how we house our freshman students, with suite-style accommodations that allow for both privacy and community. The residence hall’s programming also will reflect our commitment to diversity and inclusion, with dedicated interfaith spaces and amenities that support student development, wellness and academics.”

-Creighton University President the Rev. Daniel S. Hendrickson, SJ, PhD
