For Incoming Freshman and Transfer Undergraduate Students

Housing Applications for the 2018-2019 Academic Year will become available in early 2018.

The Office of Admissions provides all new students with information about how much of an advantage it is to live at Creighton as well as information on how to apply for housing. To apply, use the StarRez Housing Portal, which can be accessed through your Creighton NEST account. Preference is given to those new students who complete their housing application by May 4th, 2018.

1. Activating Your Net ID through AMI

To activate your student account, visit: On the left navigation bar, click "Activate Account". Your NetID and a one-time password will be available to you in your student portal after your deposit is received. Enter this information and click "Verify".

You will be prompted to enter three security questions, and provide contact information.

Next, you will create a password, containing 8 characters, and at least three of the following characters: upper case, lower case, numbers, or special characters.

Your Net ID and Blue Password are commonly referred to as your "Blue Credentials." Keep these handy throughout the housing process and during your time at Creighton University.

If you have difficulties logging on, please contact the DoIT Service Desk at 402-280-1111 option 2.

2. Accessing the StarRez Housing Portal

Access The NEST and log in with your Blue Credentials:

Choose "Residence Life" from the navigation bar.

Select "Housing Portal". You will be re-routed to the home page of the StarRez Housing Portal.

You may see an additional authentication page. When prompted, enter your Organization ID as your NetID followed by "" with your Blue Password.

3. Navigating the Housing Portal

On the top navigation bar, select "Academic Year Housing Application."

For New Freshman and Sophomore Students, select "2018-19 Academic Year (9month)," and click "Save and Continue"

Complete the preliminary application steps until you reach the final page showing your application status as complete. At the completion of the process, you will be redirected to the home page. Your home page will display a green notification displaying your application as complete after you have done so. 

4. Roommate Search

On May 15, 2018, new students will be able to access the roommate search features. This process is OPTIONAL.  If you choose not to participate in the process, you will be matched with a roommate based on the answers on your housing application profile.

To access the roommate search features, simply select the "Roommate Search" module in the navigation bar. Note, this feature will not become available until May 15th.

The roommate search process will close on June 20th, 2018.

In early July, Housing Assignment Letters will be distributed to Creighton email accounts.
