For this week and next week, the testing center will remain open daily. More information. Test results from the on-campus testing center and from off-campus testing facilities should be sent to CovidResults@creighton.edu

Continue to Complete the COVID-19 Self-Screening

Please continue to complete the daily COVID-19 self-screening through the #CampusClear app, whether or not you are coming to campus. The app is also available via a web interface. If you are feeling ill, please do not report to campus and notify your supervisor.

Approval Required for Remote Employees, Visitors to Access Campus

Creighton University employees working remotely, under the University’s fall semester job classification matrix, and Creighton employees hosting visitors, vendors, contractors and other guests must complete the Remote Employee & Visitor/Vendor Campus Access Form to request campus access for themselves or their visitors. Learn more.

Winter Break Information Available for Students

All freshman and sophomore housing will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 25. Juniors and seniors living on campus possess a 12-month housing agreement, and therefore will not be asked to vacate campus housing at any time over winter break. Other winter break information for students, as well as travel guidance, is available on the COVID-19 website.

Final Exams Begin this Thursday

Final exams begin this Thursday, Nov. 19, and conclude on Wednesday, Nov. 25. The final exam schedule can be found here.
