Directions to Butler/Hammerman Parking Lot

  • The best access is from Cold Spring Lane. If you are proceeding west on Cold Spring Lane, make a right onto Millbrook. If you are proceeding east on Cold Spring Lane, make a left on Millbrook. 
  • If you are traveling south on Charles Street, make a left into Loyola’s main campus below the bridge just prior to reaching Cold Spring Lane. After making this left, you will be traveling on Ennis Parallel. At the end of the roadway, make a left onto Millbrook.
Once you reach the end of Millbrook, make a right onto the Butler/Hammerman parking lot. Drive up the little hill, park your car and wait for the white & green shuttle. Your shuttle driver can provide you with helpful directions to reach McGuire Hall. 

Directions to satellite parking at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen:

The parking lot is located at 5200 North Charles Street approximately three tenths of a mile south of Northern Parkway and one-half mile north of Cold Spring Lane. Upon reaching the lot, park your car on one of the two lower tiers. Loyola’s shuttle service will transport you to campus. There are shuttles stopping at the Cathedral every 10 minutes. Look for a white bus with green lettering and green flashing lights. Upon arrival on our campus, you should tell the driver that you are getting off at the Boulder Café stop – signs will direct you to McGuire Hall.
