  • IELI students may request lodging on campus.  In fact, they are encouraged to live on campus so that they can take full advantage of Creighton activities, events, and—most importantly—interactions with other students and faculty.  Creighton’s residence halls are in the heart of campus, next to popular campus locations such as the Kiewit Fitness Center, the Java Jay and St. John's Church. Each residence hall is fully furnished, complete with kitchens, study rooms, computer labs, laundry facilities and internet access. However, the Office of International Programs staff assists students in finding suitable apartments or homestay if they are eligible to live off campus.

Surrounding Area

  • Creighton's 108-acre campus is within walking distance of downtown Omaha, the riverfront parks, and the Old Market shopping, restaurant, and entertainment district. Founded in 1854, Omaha has always been a dynamic, energetic city continually transforming itself. Whether it was the Native American Indian tribes, pioneers, railroad laborers or meatpackers, everyone who came to call Omaha home helped shape its current cultural diversity, hard work ethic and friendly demeanor. In recent years, the Omaha riverfront and downtown area have experienced tremendous growth with over two billion dollars in new development. Currently the 42nd largest city in the United States, the metropolitan area is home to over 800,000 people who welcome visitors with open arms and authentic Midwestern hospitality.


  • Campus facilities include a well-equipped fitness center, a student center, three major libraries with combined volumes in excess of 3,250,000, and abundant computer resources.


  • Language and culture are closely connected. Co-curricular activities facilitate the development of language skills in a real cultural context.  Besides helping students learn the U.S. and the local culture, the IELI co-curricular activities are an integral part of the writing curriculum.  Full-time students are required to attend all co-curricular activities. Co-curricular activities typically include visits to many area attractions, including Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo; the Living History Farm in Iowa; the Strategic Air Command at Offutt Air Force Base; Lincoln, the capital of the state of Nebraska. Students also attend campus lectures, performing arts series, the annual Omaha rodeo or games featuring Creighton's Division I teams.
