Loyola at a Glance


At Loyola, you'll enjoy fresh, made-from-scratch, healthy meals that focus on local seasonal items with selections that change throughout the day. Loyola dining adheres to Culinary Gold Standards, which means fresh, non-processed ingredients to ensure maximum flavor, nutrients, and freshness. Our dining menus emphasize the use of fresh vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains, and we utilize the FarmSource program to purchase local ingredients.

Outdoor Adventure

Need a break from campus or city life? Outdoor Adventure Experience (OAE) offers day and weekend-long trips throughout the academic year for undergraduate students. From hiking and backpacking to rock climbing, caving, and kayaking, adventure awaits.

80 Scenic Acres

At the center of Loyola’s beautiful 80-acre campus is the academic Quad, which vibrantly comes to life as students arrive to begin a new academic year. On brisk mornings, you’ll often find students walking across campus to grab a coffee at Starbucks in the Student Center before heading to class. In the afternoon, you’ll find students lounging on the Humanities porch, studying quietly or chatting with friends.

Explore “Charm City”

Loyola is located in Baltimore, an eclectic city with so much to see and do. Browse some of the quaint shops and enjoy a delicious variety of food—including steamed crabs! Discover a hidden gem in Little Italy, Hampden, or Greektown, and explore what the Inner Harbor has to offer. Take in a Ravens or Orioles game. Tour the aquarium, zoo, or science center. You’re sure to find something of interest and create lasting memories in the process.

Residence Life

Loyola’s residence halls are ranked as some of the best in the country, but it’s not just the amenities that make them so wonderful; it’s the connections and lifelong friendships that are formed within them. From our eco-friendly residence hall for first-year students, Flannery O’Connor Hall, to our apartment-style suites on the west side of campus, students can find a quiet spot for studying, relax with friends in a lounge, or pick up a late night snack at a nearby dining venue.
