Move-in will occur Friday, August 12 and Saturday, August 13.  You must select your specific move-in time in the Housing Portal.

Move-in times are staggered throughout the day to ensure a smooth check-in process with minimal wait times. When you arrive to campus at your selected time, you’ll have half an hour to check in, and another hour to unload your vehicle(s) at your residence hall entrance. Once your belongings are unloaded and brought up to your room, you will relocate your vehicle(s) to the designated parking areas, and return to your hall to continue unpacking.

As move-in approaches, additional details will be shared regarding driving directions, parking instructions, safety measures, and additional procedural expectations.

You can return to the Housing Portal to change your move-in appointment time at any point within 24 hours of your selected time. For special requests, please email Please note that we will try our best to fulfill your request, but we may not be able to fulfill all requests.

  • Check out the list of items to bring, as well as those to leave at home. Although we encourage you to personalize your room, please make sure to follow all University policies regarding room modifications. General guidelines are listed in the Creighton University Student Handbook and Guide to Living On-Campus.
  • Please bring only what you plan to keep in your room, as additional on-campus storage is not available. We are unable to provide storage for large items over the summer.
  • Our furniture allows you to customize the layout of your room. You may loft your bed to one of many heights and bunk your bed above your roommate’s if desired. Please do not bring personal lofts or attempt to construct your own. The beds will be fully lofted when you arrive on campus.


Items may be shipped to campus prior to your arrival to make the move-in process easier. We ask that items are shipped no earlier than July 20. Packages that arrive before August 10 will be delivered directly to your residence hall room. Packages that arrive after August 10 will be available for pickup at the mailroom in your residence hall. All boxes should include your assigned residence hall name. Until you receive your mailing address from Mail Services, please address boxes as follows:
