Loyola's response to COVID-19

As of Aug. 6, the Fall 2020 semester will be online-only for undergraduates, as well as for many graduate programs. Read the announcement and the latest message from Loyola's president, and learn more about Fall 2020 plans.

We will continue to update this page with information and resources as they become available.

Loyola will implement online-only instruction for undergraduate students for Fall 2020, with revised plans for graduate programs. Until further notice, all Loyola campuses are closed to all but authorized personnel and those being hosted by the University per our visitor policy.

If any member of our community is diagnosed with COVID-19, students should call the Student Health Center directly, and faculty, staff, and administrators should contact their supervisors.

Please check back as this page will continue to be updated with more information. Questions may be sent to coronavirus@loyola.edu.
