Loyola's rooftop garden gives undergraduate students plenty of opportunities to help the environment.

College isn't just about coursework. When students research college options, they look for colleges that will help them achieve their professional goals, but they also look for colleges that change lives. The Loyola college experience is largely about making memories, connecting with new friends, and taking advantage of everything Loyola’s life on the lake has to offer.

The University's on-campus residence halls provide a home base close to class while also supplying you with a built-in community and camaraderie as you begin your college career. With more than 250 student organizations at Loyola, there are plentiful options for meeting friends, discovering new interests, and giving back to the community

Since a complete Jesuit education encompasses the development of the whole self, Loyola students engage intellectually, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

If you have any questions about undergraduate life, Loyola offers support with student services and resources through The Hub—the first stop for all students and visitors to get immediate help, answers, and directions on what to do, or where to go, next. Attending Loyola isn't just going to college; it's a chance to change lives, beginning with your own.
