If you arrive after your assigned move-in date/time, Residence Life cannot guarantee that volunteers will be able to assist with move-in. While you can check out a move-in cart on your own, volunteers may not be available to assist with unloading your car and bringing your belongings to your room. As a reminder, you are always welcome to move in after your assigned date and time, but the department cannot allow any early move-ins—no exceptions!

Here are some additional suggestions to make your move-in go smoothly:

  • Travel in one car only: multiple cars, RVs, and other large vehicles will not be permitted to park in the on-campus parking garage. Each student will receive a parking pass for one car only in their Move-In Manual.
  • Have your Insurance Card, Loyola ID & Emergency contact information ready as you pull up to your designated unloading area at your assigned time, as detailed in your Move-In Manual.

Once you arrive on campus, Hall Staff will be on hand to meet you and guide you to your check-in tent. Students may only check-in at the tent for their assigned residence hall. 

  • You will be given a key to your room and other important documents at the check-in tent.
  • While you are checking in, our move-in volunteers and professional movers will unload your car and take your belongings to your room.
  • Once in your room, please fill out an eRCR, which is a room condition report, before you unpack! This can be found at luc.edu/ercr.
  • As you settle in, please take time to meet your Resident Director, Resident Assistants & Desk Receptionists. They will be a great resource as you adjust to Loyola and Chicago!
  • Unpack! Welcome Home!

Now that you’re in your room, it’s time to jumpstart your Loyola Experience! Welcome Week offers many events for all students.
