Summer Orientation

Congratulations and welcome to our Loyola community! This marks the official launch of our virtual orientation program. The program will be an ongoing and self-paced experience for students and family members. We’ll start with an overview of the orientation program, information on course selection, the housing process, and connecting with the Loyola community and our many available resources.

For students, please continue to check your Loyola email account as that is where most of the official communication from the University will be sent and we will send out notifications to parents and guardians for sessions that will be of interest.

Greetings for Loyola University Maryland
