In the coming weeks, Loyola will welcome a little over 4500 on-campus and several hundred off-campus student residents to Rogers Park/Edgewater and the Gold Coast. As you are very much aware, the arrival of new students and the return of upper-class students bring with it both the excitement and energy of a new academic year as well as the well-known headaches of getting them all moved-in during a short period of time.
Despite the large number of students expected, the University has worked hard to minimize the impact move-in has on our surrounding neighbors. Loyola has streamlined its parking requests to reduce the number of hours each year based on student/parent behavior. We are reducing our overall no-parking requests by 5% for 2013 despite a 33% increase in student population. We will continue to find ways to REDUCE neighborhood impact in as many ways as we possibly can.
Lake Shore Campus
Move-in for Lake Shore Campus will span six days: Monday, August 19 - Thursday, August 22 and Saturday, August 24 - Sunday, August 25.
- San Francisco Hall and di Nobili Hall students will move in off the 6300 block of Kenmore.
- Loyola Avenue will become a temporary one-way westbound on Tuesday, August 20 and Wednesday, August 21.
