Creighton University in Omaha, Neb., is building a $17 million residence for Jesuits

The Jesuits are the Catholic religious order that operates Creighton.

Creighton University in Omaha, Neb., has broken ground on a $17 million residence for Jesuits, the Catholic religious order that runs the institution.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that the building, to be named the Jérôme Nadal, S.J., Jesuit Residence, will have nearly 37,800 square feet of space.

Projected to open in fall 2023, the facility will have 28 bedrooms for Jesuits assigned to live and work at Creighton. The building also will have a 1,015-square-foot chapel, a dining hall, a library and several spaces for spiritual activities.

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and people and groups will be given access to the building for Mass, spiritual counseling and other mission-based programs.

The university says the residence will bring Creighton Jesuits, who have lived on campus since Creighton's founding in 1878, under one roof for the first time in decades.

The Jesuits now reside in Creighton Hall, the university’s oldest building, and at the aging Ignatius House, that latter of which will be torn down to make room for the expansion of Creighton’s Jesuit Gardens.
