Loyola University Chicago


The entire Loyola community is excited to welcome you to campus for your New Student Orientation program! Freshmen and Transfer students, Orientation will be your first opportunity to connect with your future classmates and begin building community at Loyola. Family and guests, Orientation will serve as a time for you to learn about your student's future academic and developmental growth.

At Orientation, students will learn how to navigate the many resources and services in place to assist them with their academic careers, meet with an advisor, and register for their classes. We will also introduce students to the values and traditions that will enrich their Loyola Experience from now through graduation. In order to best prepare for Orientation, please review our Before Orientation page.
