Periodic loud noises from work at Guilford Reservoir

Contractors working on Baltimore City’s Guilford Reservoir renovation project will be testing the reservoir foundation from Thursday, March 16, through Thursday, March 23. The tests will be conducted on weekdays only (Monday—Friday) between 10 a.m.—noon and 1—3 p.m. and produce the following noises:

  • An audible alert 30 minutes before each test
  • Another audible alert immediately prior to each test
  • A loud boom during each test

You will be able to hear these noises from most locations on the Evergreen campus because of Guilford Reservoir’s close proximity to Loyola.

Thank you for your continued patience while Baltimore City performs this important work.


Ongoing preparedness information

Staff and administrators: Inclement weather policy when Loyola is open

When weather is severe and Loyola is open, some employees may decide it is unsafe to come to work/remain at work. If an employee decides not to come to work or to leave, they must ask their supervisor/department chair for approval. Employees with an approved absence or early departure due to inclement weather may use vacation leave, personal leave, or leave without pay for the absence. For additional information see policy 4.5 through 4.6 of the Staff and Administrator Policy Manual.

Students and faculty: Academic continuity

There are several options for students and faculty to stay connected and maintain coursework when classes are canceled and campus is closed.

  • Faculty members are encouraged to develop a plan and inform students so that they understand course expectations. Please review the Maintaining Class During University Closures page on the academic affairs website for information on inclement weather, options for instructional continuity, and guidance from the Faculty Handbook.
  • Students are encouraged to consult the syllabus, course Moodle page, and email communication from their instructors.


This page will be updated with alerts and emergency information during incidents that affect the Loyola University Maryland community. Students, parents, faculty, staff, and administrators are encouraged to sign up for text alerts through e2Campus, connect with Loyola on Facebook, and follow Loyola on Twitter for immediate information during an emergency.
