Sending your student off to a university can be an exciting time, but for some it is a time of apprehension and uncertainty. Either way, you just want the best for your student. At Loyola University Chicago our goal in the residence halls is to provide safe, secure, and well maintained residential facilities where students, staff, and faculty integrate key spiritual, academic, social, and recreational experiences. Our commitment is to ignite individual passions and social responsibility in partnership with our residents to create a seamless learning experience inside and outside the classroom.
Besides the added support staff and security available, there are many benefits to living on campus. Both national studies and our own internal research tell us that students who live on campus are more successful academically than those who do not. In addition, students that live on campus are more involved in campus activities and are more satisfied with their overall university experience. Simply put, the convenience of living on campus cannot be matched. Why spend time filling up on gas and looking for parking spaces when you can be at your classroom five minutes after you leave your room? Don’t overlook the importance of readily available nutritious meals prepared for you. Our food service contractor provides balanced meals at various convenient locations, so even students on-the-go don’t have to sacrifice healthy food for something “quick.”
At Loyola University Chicago, faculty and staff members put great value on a student’s overall development. In the residence hall setting there are students, staff, and faculty that are from across the country and around the world that will work with your student to foster their learning and development and will empower them to be leaders for a just a humane world. Within this collaborative effort, your student will have more opportunities to meet new people and to make new friends.
Campus living is the best way to get adjusted to campus life. That is why we require all full-time freshmen and sophomores to live on campus unless they are married or living with their parents.
