Housing Process

Living on-campus is an ideal way to immerse yourself in student life at Creighton. You will enhance your educational experience—and make friendships that will last a lifetime.

To help you build community, make lifelong friendships and receive the support you need for success, you’ll be living with other first-year students—either on a floor or in one of our first-year freshman residence halls. Three out of our eight residence halls are typically designated for freshmen: Deglman, Swanson and Graves. See the first-time housing application process to apply for a freshman residence hall.

You’re no longer new to Creighton, but support and resources for you still abound! In the residence halls we set you up for success by clustering you in halls with other sophomores. Swanson and McGloin Halls offer suite style housing, while Kenefick, Heider, and Davis Square offer apartment style living. See the recontracting process to learn about applying for sophomore living.

Many students elect to stay on-campus following the two-year on-campus requirement. Opus Hall houses upperclassmen who continue their campus residence offering two, three and four bedroom apartment-style living. Please note that upperclassman housing is limited and is not guaranteed. See the recontracting process to learn about applying for apartment-style living.

GradGuard Renters Protection Program

GradGuard Renters Insurance is a smart investment for college students and their families. With the GradGuard Renters Insurance plan, personal items that are stolen or damaged by a covered cause of loss can be replaced, subject to a $100 deductible. GradGuard Renters Insurance also protects students financially from large-scale, unintentional damage they may cause to their residence hall or bodily injury they may cause to others for which they are legally liable.

As noted in your housing contract, Creighton University assumes no financial responsibility over the personal property of residents nor will the institution be financially responsible for large-scale, unintentional damage caused to university property by on-campus residents, such as a fire or sprinkler-head flood.

Features of GradGuard Renters Insurance for {YOUR SCHOOL} students include:

  • Low $100.00 Deductible - Compared to $500, $1000, or more for a typical homeowner’s insurance policy.
  • Replacement Cost - If your personal property is stolen or damaged due to a covered peril, it can be replaced with an item of like kind and quality.
  • Worldwide coverage - Your personal belongings are protected even when you’re away from campus, traveling, or studying abroad.
  • Electronics coverage - Your electronics, including your TV, laptop, smartphone, and tablet, are covered up to the policy limits.
  • Personal Liability Coverage - If you cause damage to university property or injure others, you may be liable for the damages. Renters insurance from GradGuard provides up to $300,000 in personal liability coverage. For example, if you unintentionally set off your building’s sprinkler system, liability protection can help pay for the resulting damages.
  • An Alternative to Homeowners Insurance - Not all homeowners insurance policies are the same. Limitations may apply when the property is away from the principal residences. Unlike homeowners insurance, your premium will not increase if you make a claim on the policy.

GradGuard’s Renters Insurance is underwritten by Markel® American Insurance Company.

Claims and coverages are subject to language, limits and exclusions, and policy. Visit GradGuard.com/renters to get more information about their coverage and a quote.
