  • Where can I get help with technology?
  • Can't connect to the Wi-Fi? Forgot your password? Need software? When you have a technology concern or question, Loyola’s student technology center is your best place to start.
  • What are the neighborhoods surrounding Loyola’s campus like?
  • Baltimore has always been a city of neighborhoods, each one with its own personality. Many are defined by their architecture, landmarks, and parks; most all take great pride in their history and culture. These areas of the city—and the people who live and work in them—add to the “charm” of Charm City. The neighborhoods surrounding the Evergreen campus are no exception. Explore the neighborhood map.
  • This is a little harder than I thought it would be! I need someone to talk to.
  • College is a huge transition, and sometimes we all need someone to talk to. Loyola offers many resources for students including the counseling center. Students who are having roommate issues should talk to their RA or visit the Student Life website for more information. And keep in mind your Messina Evergreen, mentor, and faculty member are all available to help!
