Whether you are apartment searching within the university district or hoping to connect with a potential roommate, acclimating to apartment living poses a new set of challenges and opportunities in college. We have a number of resources and programs to help you in your journey to make this new chapter of your college experience a positive one.

 

The Off-Campus Living Seminars are required of all students who choose to live off-campus for the first time, regardless of class status. The peer-led, one-hour sessions are intended to educate students about the process of finding an apartment, signing a lease, and to address common problems students encounter during their first semester off-campus. These sessions are held throughout the spring semester. Failure to attend a session may be processed as a violation of university policy.

 

If you have questions about the Off-Campus Living Seminar requirement or would like an OCSL staff member to present to your student organization email goodneighbor@luc.edu.

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.
