Frequently Asked Questions
- Where is Loyola at Cuneo Mansion and Gardens located?
The Academic Center is located at the Cuneo Mansion and Gardens at 1350 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Vernon Hills. This is about a quarter of a mile north of the intersection of Milwaukee Avenue and Town Line Road (Route 60). For driving instructions, see http://www.luc.edu/cuneo/about/location/ .
- Is parking available?
Parking is on site and free. A map of the Cuneo Mansion site can be found at http://luc.edu/media/lucedu/map-cuneo-campus.pdf.
- What are the classrooms like?
Classes are held in the Pavilion, a modern addition to the Mansion. The instructional space consists of a large ballroom/meeting space that is divided by moveable walls into three instructional spaces. Each of the classrooms has its own entrance and is equipped with moveable white boards and a lap top computer that powers a projection system onto a retractable screen.
- Is the Academic Center wired into the LUC IT network?
Yes. The entire Pavilion is wireless and connected to the LUC network.
- Is there a bookstore on site?
No, but you should be able to obtain a book list from either the Loyola Book Store or the instructor prior to the start of classes and follow one of two options: ordering online from the bookstore, choosing delivery to your home address, or ordering online through some other source, such as Amazon. This procedure has been successfully used by earlier Cuneo courses with no significant issues arising.
- Is there informal student space available?
There is a small student lounge, which contains a soft drink vending machine.
- Are there restaurants nearby?
There are a variety of restaurants within a mile or two of the Cuneo property, which is located about a quarter of a mile north of the Westfield Hawthorn Mall. Hawthorn Mall alone lists 26 dining establishments on site, and there are at least as many additional restaurants in the immediate area, some of which are described at http://www.luc.edu/cuneo/visitorinformation/localrestaurants.
- Is there a security system in place at Cuneo that restricts entry? I have heard that you need to get buzzed in through a gate; are special IDs needed?
Entry to the property is through a gated entrance, which will be open during class times. No special IDs are needed for access to the property or instructional facilities in the Pavilion.
