From Chapel and Bible conferences, to the fun and fellowship of residence life, to the many opportunities for outreach and growth — you'll discover that at Grace University, you'll feel right at home.

Review some of these essential elements of campus life to get a better understanding of the Grace University experience.

Grace LIFE Chapel

Jump in to Grace LIFE! Experience the rich tradition of campus history and meet with God through a wide range of spiritual activities, such as student-led worship, engaging discussions from campus and local ministry leaders, student presentations, and various student groups. Grace LIFE (Life Integration For Excellence) Chapel meets a half an hour four times a week.


Do you want to sit on the sidelines or enter the race? Do you have the necessary tools to do so? Bible Conference is a week in the Fall semester where all undergraduate classes are cancelled. This allows students to take a close, intense look at Biblical topics, thus giving the students a chance to reconnect with God and each other in a deeply powerful way.

Is it possible for you to make a real impact on the world at-large? Absolutely! The Jared Burkholder Conference on Global Engagement is a week in the Spring semester hosted by the Grace World Outreach Committee. All undergraduate classes are cancelled for the week. Mission representatives and organizations are on campus for sessions focused on different aspects of being a globally-minded Christian.

Residence Life

The power to be you! Located right in the heart of downtown Omaha, there are four dormitories on campus as well as limited housing available for married students. Each floor on the dorm is supervised by a Resident Assistant (RA). The RA is available to encourage community and spiritual growth in each of their residents. Each floor also has several Team Leaders who assist the RA with needs on the hall, but focus mainly on the needs of freshmen and new students.
