Loyola University Chicago requires all non-residential students to update their "Local Off-Campus" address in LOCUS by the first day of each term. This information helps the University to respond in the event of an emergency. It also aids the University in addressing complaints regarding off-campus residences. Failure to provide the University with a valid local address may be processed as a violation of University policy. Providing false or inaccurate information may also be processed as a violation of University policy. Address updates must be completed in the LOCUS system.

Individual meetings can be scheduled with an OCSL staff member. Staff will meet with students individually or in small groups to answer questions and discuss concerns about their rights and responsibilities living off-campus and/or landlord issues. To schedule an appointment e-mail goodneighbor@luc.edu or call 773.508.8660 to talk with a staff member.
