Healthy Hounds

Welcome, Healthy Hounds!  

You can help keep our campuses healthy and safe. As important as the guidelines in the Plans to Reopen Campus are, our individual choices are essential in promoting the health of our Loyola community. Do your part: wear a face covering, engage in physical distancing, avoid large gatherings, wash your hands, monitor your symptoms, stay home when you are sick, and look out for the well-being of those around you.

As a Jesuit university, we talk about AMDG, Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam, which means "For the greater glory of God." As we face this current challenge, let's remember "AMDG."

Be open to change to keep yourself and others safe and healthy.
Face coverings are required inside and outside on all of Loyola's campuses, except in your own residence hall room.
Keep physical distance of at least 6 feet at all times.
Remember that the steps you take help protect our whole community.

Speak up for a Healthy Campus

Do your part to remind others to make good decisions, too. If you see someone who is not complying with Loyola's COVID-19 guidelines, remind them to be a Healthy Hound! We all want the Spring semester to be a successful, healthy one for our community. Don't be afraid to speak up and encourage others to follow the rules to keep everyone safe.

Student Health Services

Student Health Services has outlined their Reopening During COVID-19 Efforts and a COVID-19 FAQ page for some information to best guide your concerns for the Spring semester. For any COVID-19 related questions or concerns, students should call Student Health Services directly at 410-617-5055.

Mental Health Resources

As a community, we will lean on scientific knowledge and research, as well as our commitment to cura personalis, in setting the stage for a successful semester on our campuses. Although physical health is critically important to stop the spread of COVID-19, it’s important to support the mental health of our community—particularly our students—at a time of stress, challenge, and uncertainty.

Please visit the Counseling Center website to explore emotional wellness, mindfulness, and relaxation resources; learn about remote counseling services; and to find resources for supporting students during this time.
