On Campus Lodging
All students are required to stay on campus in our residence halls during the orientation program and are placed into a room with other incoming first-year students of the same gender. All students attending Summer Orientation stay on campus overnight, even if they live locally or plan to commute to campus during the academic year. Towels and sleeping linens are provided, but you can bring along your favorite pillow or a blanket if you'd like.
Typically, half of accompanying family members choose to stay on campus and are housed in a different residence hall from their students (all of Loyola's residence halls are air-conditioned). Guests travelling together from the same family will be housed together with a private bathroom. When a guest is travelling solo, they will have their own bedroom, but may share a bathroom with another guest of the same gender. Towels and sleeping linens are provided.
If parents/family members choose to stay off campus, please refer to our list of hotels in the area.
