Additional information regarding meal plans:

Loyola does not have a traditional dining hall. We realize this is different from other schools, but it gives our students the opportunity to eat at several locations on campus with meal swipes and meal plan points. A meal swipe can be used for Greyhound Express at Iggy's for breakfast, lunch and dinner or in Boulder for breakfast and lunch. A meal swipe can also be used in Boulder on nights and weekends for all you care to eat.
